Gloucester Cathedral

Cathedral Life

Many people have an image of Cathedrals as quiet, secluded places where the pace of life is slow.

Whilst the Cathedral itself is a haven of peace and a place for reflection and prayer, the life of the Cathedral is actually very full.

There are over 50 staff members, including the clergy, administrative staff, professional musicians, stonemasons and the educational team.

In addition, more than 400 volunteers offer their time and skills to the cathedral, as welcomers and guides, flower arrangers, bellringers and servers.

The Cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese of Gloucester and you can read more about the diocese here.

The Cathedral also has close links with the King's School and all the choristers are educated there.
