Volunteering

Our volunteers are an essential part of the Cathedral community. There is no part of the Cathedral that does not rely on their attention to detail, and benefit from their commitment.

Our volunteers are an essential part of the Cathedral community.  There is no part of the Cathedral that does not rely on their attention to detail or benefit from their commitment.  Some of our volunteers have been with us for over thirty years. 

There are many different roles available for those who want to volunteer.  You are welcome to come and try out a particular activity, and we will make sure a proper induction is provided.  If you don't like it there is no obligation to continue, and if you want to try something different you are welcome to do so.  You do not generally need expertise in any of the areas listed below, as training will be provided.  Advice on health and safety is provided.  The areas where we need help are listed below.  If you are interested in volunteering please contact the Executive Assistant, ring 01179468185 or email volunteers@bristol-cathedral.co.uk.

Some volunteer roles do require a Disclosure and Barring Service check. This is to ensure that children and vulnerable adults are in safe hands.  We advise on the necessary procedure. Following recent changes to the system, fewer checks are needed than previously, and the procedure is quite straightforward.  If you would like further information on DBS checks, please contact the Chapter Clerk.
