Due to our Monsters of the Sea exhibition there is restricted access to some parts of the building and the Cloisters will be closed during this period.


At Peterborough Cathedral

The day to day operation of the Cathedral is supported by a large and committed volunteer team which helps out with a multitude of activities that keep the Cathedral open and welcoming to worshippers and visitors. Would you like to help?

We currently have over 300 volunteers. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, experiences and age groups and we simply ask that they respect the Cathedral's Values.

We are currently closed for general volunteer applicants, however remain open to corporate volunteer days. We will reopen our general volunteer applications in September.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering helps the Cathedral but there are also many benefits for each individual volunteer.

  • You may wish to volunteer at Peterborough Cathedral as an extension of your faith.

  • You may want the opportunity to spend time in and learn more about this beautiful, awe-inspiring building and help to preserve its heritage.

  • You may enjoy meeting people from many countries and cultures.

  • You may want to become part of our friendly, welcoming community.

  • You may want to learn new skills and build experience that can help in future employment.

"I've got a great thing to add to my CV and great friends out of this. I hope to continue volunteering." Noah, Exhibition Volunteer
