Volunteer Choir Chaperones | Volunteer Role

Do you enjoy choral music? 

Do you have 2 hours spare between 4.15 – 6.15pm on a weekday afternoon, either Tuesday, Thursday or Friday? 

If the answer to those questions is “Yes!” then please consider joining our team of volunteer Choir Chaperone.

Worship is at the heart of our cathedral life, and our choir is an integral part of that worship.  We have about 40 choristers, boys aged 7-13 and girls aged 9-18, each of whom sing at three services each week. 

But without chaperones we cannot have a choir, as our Safeguarding Policy requires there to be at least one adult for every 8 or 10 children present (dependent on age) to ensure their safety and wellbeing.  The role is simply to help supervise the children before, during and after rehearsals and services.  Full training will be provided. 

Interested? Or have further questions? Then please fill in the online Application form.

Mission Statement

Guildford Cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese of Guildford, covering 500 square miles of Surrey, North east Hampshire, the London Borough of Kingston and a part of West Sussex. With a seating capacity of 1000, the Cathedral provides both focus and resource for the whole community, a venue for concerts, art and education, a place of pilgrimage, as well as stillness, prayer and daily choral worship.

Volunteers support the work and mission of the cathedral in friendly and convivial surroundings with interesting and like minded colleagues.
