Please help us to secure the future of the Cathedral as it re-opens following the Covid-19 pandemic

Covid-19 saw Southwark Cathedral lose all trading revenue (one third of our total income), with no donations from visitors or ticket sales from events. Yet we worked hard to keep in touch in new ways during lockdown, introducing a programme of online worship, prayer, music, and pastoral support.

Although worshippers and visitors can now return to the Cathedral, we need your help at a time when our normal services and events still cannot be held. Your support will enable us to once again offer a full programme of daily worship, music, and education.

Donations of any size will help to:

  • Ensure our worship and music continues to reach people’s homes
  • Safeguard our heritage and care for our fabric
  • Maintain and develop our education and outreach

Thank you for your support.
