Gloucester Cathedral welcomes 350,000 visitors a year. This gives many opportunities for outreach both as the mother church of the diocese and as a historic building, and for telling the Christian story.
Through the Education Centre children from schools throughout Gloucestershire come for experiential tours of the Cathedral in line with the RE syllabus and every year there is a Sixth Form Conference. Children’s trails are devised for the major festivals and holiday activities provided.
Music is another area of outreach. The Cathedral Youth Choir provides young singers from the county with excellent choral training and the Cathedral choristers join with children from local primary schools to make music. The Cathedral also supports the County Junior Choir.
A Pioneer Minister, based at the Cathedral, is building a mission community of young Christian adults across the city of Gloucester – see the feig website.
The Cathedral Breakfast Club operates every Thursday morning in the winter months, offering a hot breakfast to the homeless of the city.
