Our Groups

Wakefield Cathedral is proud to be associated with some wonderful groups and organisations which work together to both support the cathedral and support charities across the diocese and farther afield.

Mothers' Union

Mothers’ Union is a worldwide Christian charity with over 4 million members in 83 countries, bringing support for family life to the heart of communities through praying, campaigning and enabling.

The Wakefield Cathedral Mothers’ Union branch reaches out to families in need, both locally, across the diocese and all over the world.

Flower Arrangers

Throughout the year we are fortunate to be supported by the wonderful Flower Arrangers of Wakefield Cathedral.

For many, arranging church flowers can be both a satisfying and relaxing activity, bringing colour, impact and decoration to the cathedral throughout the seasons.

The only occasion when flower arrangements are not displayed in the cathedral is during Lent when the cathedral remains bare of decorations.

Many visitors often comment on the vibrancy and colour which the addition of flowers brings to the everyday life of the cathedral, with particular popular occasions including Spring, Harvest and Christmas.

If you would be interested in finding out more about becoming a Flower Arranger at Wakefield Cathedral and what commitments the role entails, please email admin@wakefield-cathedral.org.uk or call us on 01924 373923.

Crafts Club

Every Tuesday afternoon between 14:00-15:30 we host ‘Cathedral Crafts’ inside the Treacy Hall, offering the chance for people to come together and take part in some crafting activities.

Entry is completely free and the club was put together to provide like-minded individuals the opportunity to have a safe space to practice their preferred crafts and meet new friends.

If you enjoy knitting, drawing or perhaps a spot of cross-stitching is your thing, bring along your crafting materials and enjoy an afternoon of crafts and companionship at Wakefield Cathedral.

No booking necessary. To find out more please email gillian.bunn@wakefield-cathedral.org.uk or call 01924 373923.

Online Bible Studies

Join us for an informal Bible Study group, designed to help us prepare for Sunday worship by discussing the Gospel reading set for the week and applying the text to daily life.

All welcome, all questions welcome.

Sessions usually take place on Thursday evenings from 20:00 via Zoom. See below for any upcoming sessions, or contact admin@wakefield-cathedral.org.uk or call 01924 373923 for more information.
