Planning a family day out in Bristol?

There's lots on offer at Bristol Cathedral for children and families - come and see!

Family friendly worship: We have a growing number of children who join us for worship and offer a number of family services throughout the year. 

Cathedral Kids is our thriving Sunday school which meets on Sunday morning at the 10am Eucharist during choir term. Children of all ages are very welcome.

Crafty Cathedral is a free art and craft drop in morning for children and families during school holidays, 10.00-12.00 noon.

Join us as we create and make, with a different theme each time.

Children's UniversityBristol Cathedral is proud to be a Children’s University Learning Destination.

By following our free ‘Robin Route' or 'Windows Walk' trail, children earn one hour’s worth of learning. Please ask in the cathedral shop or find one of the vergers to receive your stamp. 

To take part in the scheme, children should speak to their school. 

The Children’s University Graduation Ceremony is also held in Bristol Cathedral every July. Happy learning everyone!
