The Cathedral wouldn't be able to function without its 450 or so volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who perform a variety of different roles.

Some volunteers give many hours, others just a few. Some help each week, others just a few times a year. Whatever your time commitment, you will be much appreciated.

Our volunteers perform a variety of different roles: during services, we need stewards, readers, and servers, who carry the cross and candles; during the day we need cathedral guides and ordained clergy or licensed lay ministers to act as chaplain guides; and there are specialist roles as well: bell ringers, embroiderers, flower arrangers and choral singers.

All our volunteers are made very welcome and are a highly valued part of the Cathedral community. They are invited to monthly coffee mornings with talks or quizzes, special services, and parties.

Please contact Miranda Hockliffe, Volunteer and Visitor Coordinator, for a chat.
