Donate Online and Support Guildford Cathedral

Our Cathedral proudly upholds the motto, 'Open to God, Open to all,' thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers. We are committed to offering free entry for everyone, but like many Cathedrals, we do not receive regular government funding. The Church of England supports the stipends of our clergy, but we rely on income generated from visitors, fundraising, and our business activities. Our dedicated team works tirelessly on applications to trusts and grant-making bodies, but we need your help to continue being a wonderful place and a powerhouse for well-being in our community.

Reasons to Support Us

Guildford Cathedral stands resolute on Stag Hill, a striking landmark visible from the A3, guiding navigation around Guildford. Upon entering, visitors are captivated by the grace of the open space before them.

We serve as a versatile space, hosting concerts, art exhibitions, children's activity days, and worship services. People visit for various reasons, whether to enjoy the music, appreciate the art, find solace, or explore. We provide tours for interested adults and workshops for schools, and hold graduation ceremonies and school leavers' services.

Our sublime choirs, combined with the grandeur of the building, elevate worship to another level.

With thousands of visitors annually and our elevated location, both the elements and wear-and-tear take their toll on our beloved structure. Regular maintenance is essential to address weathering, accidental damage, and general wear.

We aim to keep our exhibition spaces up-to-date for artists and local groups, ensure safe and suitable furniture, and maintain a clean and repaired fabric to enhance the experience for all visitors and worshippers. Your support helps us maintain this safe haven, a place to explore, learn, worship, and seek refuge from the elements.
