Although it is rooted in history, the Cathedral is not a museum but a vibrant, living community which depends on the goodwill and generosity of the many volunteers who work alongside the Clergy and Staff every day and in many different ways.
From the shop to stewarding, flower arranging to bell ringing, serving at the altars to leading the Sunday School, there are many opportunities to get involved and contribute to the life of the Cathedral Community.
Take a look at some of the current volunteering opportunities below:
Our welcomers are vital in providing a warm welcome to visitors. It is a great chance to meet the fascinating people who visit the Cathedral and learn a bit about the building and its history.
Altar Serving team
Our team of altar servers assists the clergy at our Sunday morning services.
The Cathedral’s Flower Guild plays a vital role in the festivals of Easter and Christmas, while also creating displays every week outside of Lent and Advent.
The bellringing team practise every Tuesday evening and ring every Sunday as well as for special occasions.
