Volunteers are crucial to the daily rhythm of the Cathedral.

By joining our friendly team of volunteers you will become part of the Cathedral community. There are a variety of opportunities to become involved ranging from welcoming visitors; being a Service Steward; to leading guided walks through the woodlands and riverbanks.

All our volunteers play a vital role in the mission of this great Cathedral as we offer a warm welcome to all who visit. Some of our volunteer positions require those applying to undertake a DBS check.
