Cathedral Guides Appeal

Monday February 11 2019

The Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral has made its annual appeal for volunteer guides to the historic building.

With increasing numbers of visitors to Scotland the Volunteer Guides of Glasgow Cathedral welcome people from all over the world, as well as nearer home.

The guides convener, Charles Dorward, says: “Our aim is to give them a warm welcome and share our love of this beautiful and unique building - an admired example of mediaeval Gothic architecture with a fantastic collection of twentieth century stained glass which encapsulates the history of Scotland, its church and the city of Glasgow while still functioning as a Church of Scotland parish church and the ‘Mother Church’ of the city.”

The Guides are part of the Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral, a non-denominational body, and applicants need no particular church allegiance or prior knowledge to apply. Training is provided. Most Guides work a half-day shift, once a week, between Monday and Saturday over the summer months.

Anyone interested should contact Charles via where there is more information, or call the Cathedral Office on 0141 552 8198.
