Passes for Parishioners in the Diocese of Oxford

The Cathedral Chapter wants to encourage members of the Church of England in the Diocese of Oxford to come to their Cathedral to pray whenever they wish. Therefore, parishioners from across the Diocese may apply for a free entry pass to the Cathedral by completing an application form and sending it, together with a stamped addressed envelope, to the Cathedral Office. Passes are issued for the sole use of named individuals, their spouses and children under 18 (children must be accompanied).

The pass allows you entry through the Tom Gate entrance where you will be shown across to the Cathedral by the Custodians. It allows you to enter the Cathedral to pray and to look around. It does not give you entry to the College (including the Hall), though you are welcome to visit these parts of Christ Church by paying the entrance fee in the usual way at the Meadow Gate. The form can be downloaded below.
