The Friends of Peterborough Cathedral

The Friends of Peterborough Cathedral is an association of people worldwide who love this magnificent church and wish to help maintain and enhance it for present and future generations, as well as to enjoy one another’s company through a programme of activities. While many members live locally there are others further afield who simply enjoy receiving information about the Cathedral, its mission and community life.

How the Friends have helped

Since its foundation in 1927, the Friends' association has funded a wide range of projects to help the Cathedral, which have included:

  • repairs to the Great West Window

  • purchase of cassocks and surplices for the Girls’ Choir

  • the re-siting of the Font in the Nave

  • a new vestibule for the South Transept

The Friends' support is currently an extremely important aspect in the progress of the Peterborough 900 Campaign.


AGM and Friends’ Day, Saturday 18 June 2022

The AGM will be held in the New Building at 2.30pm.  Before that, there will be a splendid Sunday’s two course buffet lunch with tea and coffee. The lunch will also be in the New Building, starting at 1pm.  
After the AGM, we hope to provide a lecture with a distinguished speaker, starting at around 3.15pm.
Then, following a tea/ coffee break, all Friends are warmly  invited to join the Old Choristers for Choral Evensong at 5.30 pm.
This should be a wonderful day, and I hope many Friends will be able to join us.
The cost for the lunch and refreshments will be £20 per head; there is no charge for the lecture.
We will be writing to all Friends whose details we have with a formal invitation in the near future, but it would be very helpful if those Friends who will wish to attend would please register their interest, by emailing me on The papers are here:
