Guildford Cathedral is open to all, 365 days a year (366 during a Leap Year), as a place of stillness, prayer, pilgrimage and daily choral worship.

The Cathedral is a busy Christian church: we celebrate over 1,000 services a year, sustaining vibrant and inclusive daily worship together with magnificent music from our choir. You are very welcome to join us and there is no admission charge.

 

The regular daily pattern of Mattins, Holy Communion and Choral Evensong is at the centre of Cathedral life. The great seasonal celebrations of Christmas and Easter mark the most significant dates in our Christian calendar; many other services take place throughout the year, including special community and seasonal services such as Harvest Festival.

Listed below are the normal service times; on special occasions the times may vary – please see the full service schedule for a list of all services and music details.
