Salisbury Cathedral Guides offer a vital service

Volunteer roles at Salisbury Cathedral 

Currently there is a need for weekend floor guides to cover either a Saturday morning or afternoon sessions and Sundays from 1230 to 4pm. This role suits those who are happy welcoming and engaging with the public, sharing wonderful stories about the cathedral and enjoy being a member of a team. Full training and mentoring is given.  

The Holy Dusters are also looking to boost their numbers. For this role, the commitment would be about once a fortnight for a few hours in the morning dusting the Quire and putting the books in order.  

The highly valued team of chaplains would also welcome new team members and this usually suits retired clergy. Hourly prayers are read and pastoral care is an important part of this role. The commitment ideally would be a few sessions a month, a session is about 3 hours.
