The scale and splendour of our building bear clear witness to the historic patronage of kings and bishops. But today we live in a different age. The Cathedral belongs to all who love it, from local worshippers, students and volunteers, to national and international musicians, artists and visitors from all over the world.
Why support the Cathedral?
It costs £10,000 a day to maintain this magnificent building that hosts so many daily services and great festivals, musical and cultural events, and educational activities open to all.
This great medieval Cathedral has existed for nearly a thousand years, and it’s easy to take its future for granted. But we’re entirely self-funded, and receive no support from the State or the Church to support our buildings or activities.
Whether you value this Cathedral as a place of Christian worship, for its magnificent music or its unique place England’s history, or simply as a great place to meet for a meal or hold an event, you too can help secure its future.
