The Friends of Chester Cathedral

Enhancing the present, supporting the future

The Friends of Chester Cathedral are a Registered Charity led by a Council of Trustees and with HRH The Prince of Wales as Patron. Members come from all walks of life and are of varying faiths or none, brought together as a society founded nearly 100 years ago with the common aim of supporting the Dean and Chapter in their work to:

  • Support the life, worship and ministry of the Cathedral, especially its music
  • Enhance and assist in maintaining the fabric and furniture of the building

Recent grants made to the Cathedral include:

  • New chairs for the Nave which has allowed the space to be reconfigured easily for a variety of purposes
  • A set of specially commissioned Nativity figures by Tony Evans
  • Support for the Music Department during the pandemic restrictions

Invitation to join us
If you would like to get involved, we warmly invite applications from new members. During Covid-19 restrictions we have had to curtail our social events, but in a normal year we would arrange an overnight trip as well as other events, including a Friends AGM and lecture. Our informative newsletter is published twice a year and we are always on the lookout for new contributors!  Membership Form.
