About Gloucester Cathedral
The 21st century Cathedral aspires to reach out to as many people in our community as possible, and by volunteering you are continuing a long tradition of an open door to all, of welcome and awe.
Volunteers engage in roles as diverse as a front of house friendly face on the Visitor Information Point and Wellwisher area, shop assistant or tower tour guide, to keeping the monuments looking beautiful and helping, vulnerable partners to volunteer and feeding the homeless. Gloucester Cathedral is part of the Church of England but we welcome people regardless of faith, gender or background.
