Supporting, financially and otherwise, the maintenance and development of the Cathedral, and its ministry and mission

Membership of the Friends

Membership of the Friends is open to all who wish to support the Cathedral by their prayers or their interest in its life and ministry, and we should be delighted to welcome you. For membership details and an application form, please see below.

Friends are invited to the Annual General Meeting. They receive each summer a copy of the Friends of Portsmouth Cathedral Yearbook which contains articles about the life of the Cathedral as well as reports on the work and activities of the Friends’ Council.

There is also a Spring and a Christmas newsletter which aims to publicise events for the following year.
