To keep Chester Cathedral running costs over £1,000,000 a year.

The Cathedral receives no regular funding from the government or diocese. We raise funds through our own endeavours and the generosity and support of our visitors and congregation.

Your donations will directly contribute towards the enormous costs of maintaining the fabric of the building and ever-increasing energy bills as well as helping the Cathedral play a key role for the Christian community in Chester and Cheshire.The Cathedral is a place of gathering, enabling large groups to celebrate, to commemorate and to worship together, for charities to promote their causes, for children to learn, a centre of musical excellenceand a site of extraordinary historical significance; please do help to keep the history and ministry alive.
