Volunteering

Please click here to read our leaflet which gives more information about volunteering at Wakefield Cathedral, and click here to read about our current volunteering opportunities. You can read our latest newsletter at the bottom of the page.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of many organisations, and Wakefield Cathedral is very proud of all its volunteers who play an invaluable role in the life of the Cathedral in our community.

Volunteers welcome visitors; they conduct free guided tours, work in the bookshop and the Cathedral Kitchen (Coffee shop) and also help with workshops and activities provided by the Cathedral’s education department.

Volunteers are an integral part of our cathedral, and without their dedication, energy and commitment, some things simply wouldn’t get done!

“Volunteering at the Cathedral is fantastic! It’s so enjoyable. It’s a wonderful personal experience as well as giving to others – you give and receive at the same time. I wish I could do it more often.” Janice Tattersall, volunteer at Wakefield Cathedral.

The wonderful thing about volunteering is that it is a two-way relationship. So alongside the contribution to our local community, volunteers also benefit tremendously from the experience

  • learning new skills
  • getting back into paid work
  • improving physical or mental well-being,
  • or simply meeting interesting people and having fun
