Love Durham Cathedral?Donate now

Durham is a university city.  Students studying in Durham are always welcome at services or as visitors. 

We hope that, whatever your faith, you will come to visit the Cathedral when you can. We also hope you will come to love Britain’s favourite building for yourself.

Getting involved

Many students become involved with the Cathedral’s life, through worshipping with us or becoming volunteers.


Our listening service

We understand that university life can be exhilarating but also stressful. If you need someone to talk to, we are here to listen. There are more details on our Pastoral care page.

For regular worshippers

If you worship regularly, perhaps you would like to serve as a Service Steward or Sunday School helper?
