Gloucester Cathedral reopens with safety award

Gloucester Cathedral has reopened for daily worship and visitors - complete with certification for its work following COVID-19 guidelines.

The Cathedral has been awarded Visit Britain's We're Good to Go status for its work ensuring safety advice is followed with cleaning and social distancing measures in place.

Safety measures include limiting capacity, a one-way system throughout the building and hand-sanitising stations with reviews of procedures to ensure updated advice is followed.

The Very Reverend Stephen Lake, Dean of Gloucester, said: "Your Cathedral is open and welcoming, safe to visit and full of space.

"Do come to enjoy the opportunity to pray and to wonder at a place that has 'seen it all before' and so tells of God's abiding love for us all."

Opening times have been shortened from 10am-5pm from Monday to Saturday and noon-5pm on Sundays.

Public worship takes place daily with a short service of Holy Communion at 12.30pm from Monday to Saturday, Evening Prayer at 4.30pm daily and the Eucharist at 10.15am on Sundays. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The Monk's Kitchen Cafe is now open for takeaways with outdoor seating available and the gift shop has also reopened.

You can check out the safety measures and plan your visit at the Cathedral website.
