The Guild of Guides offers a ministry of welcome to visitors from many parts of the country and the world by providing guided tours of the Cathedral for many thousands of visitors each year.
Guides are on duty Mondays – Saturdays from 10am until 4pm, and work on a weekly rota system. A good deal of their work focuses on catering for un-booked individuals or small groups.
The guides normally work in teams of three and four to ensure a presence in both the Cathedral and Crypt. The Guild of Guides is directed by Deacon Paul Mannings.
The raison d’etre of the Guild of Guides is best summed up by their Mission Statement:
We aim to be worthy custodians of this Cathedral Church by welcoming each visitor in the name of the Lord and by sharing with each other Christian goodwill, a united sense of purpose and a spirit of commitment.
We are currently recruiting for new guides and welcomers. Please click here.
