Monday November 8th at 2pm. Canon Mandy will be leading the session, reflecting on her sabbatical in late 2019/early 2020. The session will be followed by refreshments. All are welcome.
Since the Visitors’ Book returned to the welcome table by the Cathedral entrance in late July, it has been wonderful to read the comments of those who have begun to venture out once again.
Many of the comments we have received are from first-time visitors to the Cathedral, both from the local area and from further afield. Visitors recorded in the Visitors’ Book in the last few months hail from all over Yorkshire and Lancashire, as well as the Midlands, Norfolk, Oxford, Bristol, Chelmsford, Brighton and London. As well as first-time visitors, there are also comments from those who are pleased to be revisiting us once again after a long absence.
The beauty of the building, the stillness and serenity found within, as well as the warmth of the welcome, are praised in many of the visitors’ comments.
The following comments give a taste of what our visitors felt about what many called this “special place”:
“A warm and very welcoming Cathedral…”
“A lovely place of calm and creativity- beautiful tapestries and textiles.”
“Beautiful place, very peaceful. A hidden gem. We will come again.”
“Beautifully kept. Congratulations to all who preserve it.”
“A lovely service and beautiful singing. I loved the organ.”
“One of the first members of the Girls’ Choir in the 1990s. Fond memories.”
“Left feeling re-awakened.”
If you would like to our lovely team of volunteer welcomers who are on duty Monday to Saturday please contact us on e-mail.
Guided Tours for adult groups
In the last few months, as visitors have returned, there have also been a number of groups visiting the Cathedral for guided tours. These include visitors on the Faith Trail and on Heritage Open Day, a group from Global Café, members of the Keighley Asian Women’s Group, students from Bradford University and several groups from Learnwise ESOL Centre.
