Southwark Cathedral is currently closed, but not forever. Please stay in touch with us and donate

Please help us to secure the future of the Cathedral through the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are now totally reliant on voluntary donations

  • we receive no government funding towards our normal running costs
  • we are not receiving income from our shop, café, or conference centre

We ask you consider donating to the Cathedral so that we can make it through this difficult time.

Congregational Giving

Please consider setting up a direct debit or standing order if you do not already give regularly, or if you normally give by cash.

  • Set up a direct debit via the Charities Aid Foundation website here
  • Or set up a Standing Order to Account No. 18927750 / Sort Code 51-50-03.  Payee Name: Southwark Cathedral Council.  Use your name as the payment reference and complete a Gift Aid form if applicable.

Please let us know if you set up a gift, or if you have changed the amount of your regular giving.  This will allow us to thank you and plan our finances.  You can let the Cathedral know by emailing the Cathedral Accountant here


We welcome gifts in Wills to enable us to continue our mission. After your family and friends have been provided for, please consider leaving a gift to Southwark Cathedral. Even a small percentage of your estate can have a transformative impact.

It’s easy to make or alter a will, and most charity donations in the UK are free from inheritance tax (Southwark Cathedral is treated as an exempt charity by HMRC). All you need to do is:

  • seek professional legal advice to assist you with writing your will
  • alternatively, add a codicil to an existing will

A pledge form can be downloaded here

A codicil form can be downloaded here

Gifts in Memory

Giving in memory can be a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one. You can remember their life by giving a financial gift to the Cathedral, with your donation going toward the things they enjoyed most; perhaps our choral music or the wonderful T.C. Lewis organ.

If you are a UK tax payer please consider completing and returning a Gift Aid Declaration. Please download a Gift Aid form here
