The Dean of Guildford, The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams, says: “The current challenges have encouraged creativity as we have continued to pray and worship together using media which is new or unfamiliar to some. Home Worship is our way of remaining Open to All and Open to God together.”

Everyone can join in through Facebook and Twitter or on the Home Worship page of the cathedral’s website
