Your donation helps keep the Cathedral open to God, open to all

No, I'd prefer to donate another time


Eco Day | 7 March 2024

On Thursday 7th March, Guildford Cathedral will host a Diocesan Schools’ Eco-Day for KS1 pupils. The day will involve learning about the effects of CO2 on our planet and encourage thinking about reusing and recycling items to reduce waste. There will be Prayer Stations to encourage children to think about the wonderful world God has created for us, and our responsibility in looking after it for the future. The day finishes with an act of Collective Worship for pupils to join together their reflections, prayers and singing voices, as they prepare to return to school with the positive news that each small thing we do can make a big difference in our world.

Feedback from 2022 Eco Day

“I wanted to thank you and your team for the wonderful and special Eco Day today. Our Eco team absolutely loved the visit to the cathedral, and they were buzzing with excitement after a super day of learning with you.” [Teacher, Eco-Day March 2022]

“The activities were fresh and spot on.” [Teacher, Eco-Day March 2022]

The Eco-Day is for KS1 pupils, ideally those who are part of your school’s Eco-Team. Each school can bring 6 pupils to join in with the day. We hope that groups will travel to the Cathedral in a way that is eco-friendly; please do consider using the train, bus or car-sharing for your journey. The day will begin at 10.00am and finish at 2.30pm. The cost of the day is £15 per school.
