The Parishioner Pass

Christ Church Cathedral is your Cathedral.

You'll be aware that the Foundation of Christ Church, College and Cathedral, attracts many thousands of visitors each year and it is important not to disturb its normal working life. For the general public a visitor entrance charge is made and a team of custodial staff help control the flow of visitors.

That said, members of the Church of England in the Diocese of Oxford are welcome to come to their Cathedral to pray whenever they wish. Parishioners from across the Diocese may apply for a free Parishioner Pass by completing application form and sending it, together with an SAE, to the Cathedral Visitor Officer, Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford. 

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.

Another way to experience your Cathedral: you could bring a group from your parish for a special parish visit; and of course, you are always welcome to join us for worship at any of our services.
