Donate - Chester Cathedral


You can help us with our work

It costs us over £6,000 a day to keep Chester Cathedral open, and to help maintain our magnificent building. 


Our operations depend on the kindness of individuals like yourself. At present it costs nearly £6000 a day to maintain this architectural gem and it’s the generosity of our congregation and visitors that helps us to meet these expenses. However, with the cost-of-living crisis and our commitment to providing a fair living wage to all our staff, the economic climate has affected our ability to meet these rising operational costs. Establishing a regular donation allows us to predict our income, enabling us to fulfil our fundamental roles as a place of worship, heritage, and community hub.
