Guildford Cathedral is a warm-hearted community that is open to God, open to all.
We are delighted to be welcoming congregations to both our said and choral services. Details of all services are on the Cathedral website and wherever possible are streamed via our YouTube Channel.
The Cathedral is generally open Monday - Saturday 8am - 5pm and Sundays 1.30pm - 3.30pm both for visitors and for individual prayer. Services are also held outside of these times so please check the website for details. We are a busy working Cathedral and sometimes events and services will mean that we need to close to visitors, please do check the Cathedral website for up to date details.
We continue to encourage people entering the Cathedral, Seasons Cafe and the Cathedral Shop to wear a facemask and follow the social distancing measures we have in place for both your own and the safety of others.
The Cathedral Shop is open Monday - Saturday 9.30am - 3.30pm, and offers a wide range of gifts and cards for baptisms, first communion, confirmation, marriage, ordination, birthdays ... you need to come and see the lovely range of items our team has selected for you; the stock changes on a regular basis, so please do come and visit.
Seasons Cafe is open Monday - Saturday 9am - 3pm, and on Sundays 9am - 12 noon. The cafe has Covid secure measures in place, and offers a great range of beverages and tasty treats. All are welcome whether it be mums meeting up with their toddlers for a catch up and drink, somewhere convenient for an informal business meeting or friends meeting for lunch. As well as the eat in facility there are outdoor tables for you to use, and Seasons also offer an outside catering service.
We do encourage everyone to check the website before leaving home to come to the Cathedral, whether for a service or prayer, in case there have been any last minute changes to opening – these will be advertised on the Cathedral Diary on the website.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral.
