Hereford Cathedral Mission Statement: Hereford Cathedral’s mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in the City and Diocese of Hereford, and in the wider world, by serving and inspiring all those who encounter this sacred place and our community.


Eastern Cloisters Project: The Eastern Cloisters Project is a new National Lottery Heritage Fund project, which aims to renovate the Eastern range of the Cloisters, and host a series of related events and activities. Inspired and informed by the history of the Cloisters, and by the special atmosphere that the Cloisters have, three main themes have been identified: music, learning, and community.

There is no requirement for anyone volunteering on the Eastern Cloisters Project to be a churchgoer; volunteers of any faith or none are all equally welcomed.


Our beautiful building is the home of a community that has worshipped and worked here continuously for well over 1,300 years. All are welcome to visit, and entry is always free. Hereford Cathedral also houses the Hereford Mappa Mundi, a copy of the Magna Carta dating from 1217, King John's Writ, and a unique Chained Library.

Hereford Cathedral is committed to being a fully accessible visitor attraction, workplace and place of worship. All are welcome to work and volunteer here, regardless of impairment, and we will always facilitate adjustments to make a role accessible.
