Volunteer

For centuries, Newcastle Cathedral’s iconic Lantern Tower has been a guiding light for visitors and worshipers alike. Today, we are committed to providing a radical welcome to people of all faiths and none and walking with those on the margins of society through the work of projects such as our Lantern Initiative.

You are invited to join us in preserving and telling the stories connected to this sacred space. Together, we can enhance the experience of all who come through our doors.

Volunteers’ Week Celebration Service

On Tuesday 4 June at 2pm, join us to celebrate the vibrant volunteer community at the heart of the city of Newcastle and the wider Diocese.
