The Society of Friends of Chester Cathedral was founded in 1930 and is thriving with over 800 members!
The Friends of Chester Cathedral aim to support and work with the Dean and Chapter. They help with maintaining and enhancing the fabric, fittings and monuments of the cathedral, whilst supporting its life, worship and ministry. The society has supported a wide variety of developments across the cathedral, particularly in the areas of worship and music. Friends kindly provide funds for the maintenance of the fabric and the furniture of the building.
Friends also cover the cost of flower arrangements in the church and help the gardening group. Our very popular weekly lunchtime Organ Recitals are also financially supported by them.
A number of social events are held by the Friends during the year as well as a very popular overnight trip, the annual meeting is held every June and all members are invited to attend!
