Company Description

Canterbury Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is both a holy place and part of a World Heritage Site, and it is also the home of a community of people who seek to make it a place of welcome.

Our mission statement is to show people Jesus through the splendour of the building as well as the beauty of the worship.

The Cathedral is well known all over the world and we receive more than one million visitors and worshippers every year.  More than just a beautiful old building, it is a working, living church which maintains a tradition of welcome and worship that has been practised here for over 1400 years.  We employ more than 300 staff who are supported by more than 600 dedicated volunteers.

The Church has always relied heavily on volunteers; without volunteers most churches and cathedrals would not be able to function. Volunteering provides a wonderful opportunity to involve people who wish to be part of the Cathedral and wider community.

Volunteers contribute to every aspect of Cathedral life, from worship to visitor welcome, collections care, bell ringing to ‘holy’ dusting.

We are committed to actively supporting and promoting volunteering and developing volunteering opportunities for people from all sections of the community.
