Be part of something special - Volunteer at the Cathedral

The Flower Guild keep the Cathedral filled with beautiful flowers throughout the year 

Would you like to be a part of a busy, thriving and friendly community? Could you help us to welcome visitors and care for this ancient and special place?

At the Cathedral we have a huge team of committed and loyal volunteers, each playing a part in the day-to-day running of the building and offering a warm welcome to all who come here, seven days a week. Young and old, working and retired, skilled and just eager to help, our volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds and without them, the Cathedral simply could not function. There are hundreds of opportunities to be filled and we are always looking for enthusiastic new people.

In return for donating their time and skills, our volunteers receive support, training, experience and become part of an active and supportive community - they also have the satisfaction of knowing that their work is helping to preserve over a thousand years of history and incredible heritage to be passed on to future generations.

Are you interested in interacting with visitors?

You could help in the shop, cafe, library or reception desk, become a Cathedral Guide, Concert Steward or a member of the Welcome Team which include the Welcomers and Welcome Team Assistants who provide information and assistance to all our visitors. 






Do you like to create beaufitul spaces?

You could join the Flower Guild, Textile Guild or the legions of silver polishers, holy dusters and gardeners who all help keep the Cathedral looking beaufitul inside and out.

If you are musical, why not join the choir, orchestra, or bellringers who fill the Cathedral with glorious music year round?


 Would you like to work with children?

Our award-winning Education Centre is always looking for more people to help with school visits and family events throughout the year. For more information, please call 01727 890212.






Are you interested in working behind the scenes to ensure the Cathedral runs smoothly?

There are groups of money-counters, admin assistants and PA operators who are absolutely vital in helping us get everything done. 







Whatever you feel inspired to do, please get in touch! We provide full training and guidance in your role and you will have the support of the Volunteers' Committee and Volunteers' Chaplain for anything you need. 

Come and be part of the Cathedral community!
