Invitation to special Coronation service at Gloucester Cathedral

Published: Tuesday March 28, 2023

As part of the Big Help Out day to celebrate the Coronation of The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, everybody is warmly invited to attend a special service at Gloucester Cathedral.

The service led by the Rt Revd Bishop Rachel Treweek and the Dean of Gloucester, the Revd Canon Andrew Zihni, will be held on Monday 8 May starting at 11am.

The theme of the Coronation celebrations is to highlight the positive impact of community volunteering. We are so proud of our voluntary network in and around the Diocese of Gloucester.

From serving our churches as churchwardens, treasurers, Messy Church teams, or foundation governors to serving our communities as Cats Protection volunteers, hospital drivers, or leading Girlguides or Scouts, Church of England volunteers across the country devote over 23 million hours to community action over and above their normal church activities.

However you volunteer, you are making a difference and we really do hope you will come so we can thank you for all you do.

The Big Help Out, on 8 May, provides opportunities for people to get involved in their communities right across the UK. More details can be found here:

You can also sign up to receive the Church of England’s daily Coronation reflections via email. The reflections will be sent out from 10 April to Coronation Day and will also be available via smart speaker and the free Daily Hope phone line.
