A range of groups, many led by lay members of the congregation, offer a variety of ways for you to participate in the work and ministry of the Cathedral

The Friends of Southwark Cathedral

The Friends of Southwark Cathedral is a wide network of people who have the welfare of the Cathedral at heart

Some live or work nearby and worship regularly at the Cathedral.  Some now live far away but still feel part of Southwark traditions. All play a vital part in contributing to the future of the Cathedral and its mission.

Robes Project

The Robes Project was setup in January 2007 by an ecumenical team of volunteers using church premises to provide food, friendship and shelter to support homeless people by giving them a safe, warm place to sleep, a hot meal and support as they start to rebuild their lives.

This is done by churches offering a temporary night shelter during the winter months from November to April of each year for 15 to 20 guests each night.

We run annual fundraising events. The biggest of these is the Sleepout held here at Southwark Cathedral on the last Friday in November. Over the past four years this event has raised over £250,000 which has been crucial to the continuation of the vital work of Robes Project.
