There are lots of interesting and rewarding volunteer opportunities at Bradford Cathedral. Our volunteers help to make the building welcoming for visitors and support our hospitality, music-making and ministry. That might involve being a Welcomer, helping with flower arranging, being part of our verger team, gardening, singing in the choir, or ringing our peel of twelve bells.

Bradford Cathedral is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. All post holders and volunteers are expected to share this commitment.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteers support the work of our paid staff to enhance the daily life of the Cathedral. It gives people an opportunity to serve God and their community, make friends, learn new skills, and gain valuable work experience.

Meeting new people, talking with people from different cultures, giving something back to the community, or simply getting out of the house are just some of the reasons given when we asked our volunteers why they gave up their time to come and help at the Cathedral.

All we ask is a minimum of three hours per month, but if you want to do more we would certainly welcome that.

If you want to talk to someone directly about volunteering at the Cathedral, do get in touch with our Coordinator of Volunteers on volunteers@bradfordcathedral.org or call 01274 777720.

We look forward to welcoming you!




Our gardening volunteers meet every Saturday morning at 10am in good weather. For more information please email info@bradfordcathedral.org.
