The Child Friendly Church Award highlights our commitment to offering the best provision for both children and their families, encompassing all that this includes from safe guarding to inclusion of children and their families into the worshipping life of the Cathedral.

We aim to offer opportunities for children and their families to explore faith together through a variety of styles of worship and activities held both weekly and throughout school holidays.

Throughout every school holiday we offer a wide variety of free activities, embracing all age groups, giving families the chance to explore spiritual themes in a fun and interactive way.

The Cathedral is a great place for all ages to visit. Children have great fun exploring the hidden treasures throughout our magnificent building and we have specially designed children’s trails. Our audio tours also have versions suitable for children.

We also offer activities for children at our 10:30 Sunday morning services:

  • Our Zone2 service is particularly suited for families with an all age café style approach.
  • At the traditional Eucharist we aim to provide a welcoming aspect for families with activity sheets.
