ARC Student Guides 2017

Summer tours of the Cathedral in six European languages

During three weeks of July 2017, Christ Church Cathedral will be playing host to a group of young European students who will be providing tours in their own languages to our many visitors from overseas.  

This is the 12th year that we will have participated in this scheme, run by ARC, which stands for Accueil (Welcome), Rencontre (Encounter) and Communauté (Community). ARC is an ecumenical organisation which provides free guided tours to visitors in major churches and cathedrals across Europe. Participants are volunteers aged between 18 and 30, and in return for giving up a few weeks of their summer, they learn to live and work as part of a community and appreciate other cultures.
