Tour Guides – Guides lead visitors on a historical journey telling stories of the past through the daily tours offered to visitors

Welcomers – Should be healthy enough to stand and greet visitors, we especially welcome volunteers with foreign language skills

Education – May require a DBS check

Cathedral in LEGO® – Assist in building our miniature cathedral while interacting with our many visitors

Cathedral Estate / gardens – Help keep the Cathedral Estate and it’s gardens on top form, and appealing to Cestrians and city visitors alike
