Cathedrals need friends. You may come to Cathedral services often or just occasionally; you may come to events or bring visitors to look round the ancient and beautiful buildings; perhaps you want to support the Cathedral’s work and witness, or the tradition of choral singing which is very strong here in Worcester; maybe you understand how relentless is the need to maintain the buildings, or are interested in our priceless medieval library. Any of these is enough to make you already a friend of the Cathedral, and we’d like to welcome you into the Friends organisation.
Everyone is welcome: there are no qualifications of denomination, creed or faith. You don’t need to live in Worcester – or the Diocese: several of the Friends have just been visitors here, or have moved away and want to keep in touch.
Everyone is welcome because the Cathedral building is part of our English heritage and is there for everyone. But it is too a Christian building and community doing its work in a Christian tradition, a beacon of faith over thirteen centuries. So we hope that Christians of all denominations throughout the Diocese and beyond will think of joining us to preserve building, heritage and tradition for future generations.

All about membership, from the benefits you will receive if you join, and how you will be kept in touch with its life and work, music and maintenance.
Please see the Cathedral website for details of services and opening times for private prayer.

It's great to be back after lockdown!
We have a short programme of events to take us up to Christmas, and our Events and Social Committee is working upon a full programme for next year.
