Toddler Time at Hereford Cathedral

Starting on 9 May, and meeting at 9.30 am every Monday in term-time, the Toddler Group will be open to children aged 1-3, and free for families to attend.

Taking place inside the beautiful cathedral, the sessions will be led by cathedral staff and volunteers. After a bible story, children will be able to take part in a craft activity, enjoy playing together and finish the session with a song – lots of fun, and refreshments will be available for both parents and toddlers.

I’m so happy to invite the tiniest children, and their parents and carers, to come in and discover what a great place this amazing cathedral can be. The cathedral really is a place for little children, because it is God’s house, and He tells us to welcome the little children in his name. This time of fun (with a bit of learning thrown in) is our gift to the little ones, and hopefully a time of rest and refreshment for parents and carers too.”

Sarah Brown, the Dean of Hereford

William Talbot-Ponsonby, Head of Education & Family Learning, adds:“we are so looking forward to launching our Toddler Group in May. It’s open to all, whether you visit the cathedral regularly or have never stepped through the doors – we see it as a great opportunity for us to welcome in new people and to share our wonderful building.  If you would also like to help out in running the sessions, please contact me at, as I am always on the lookout for enthusiastic volunteers to help share their Christian knowledge and inspire young people.”

The Toddler Group will be free to attend, and advance booking is not required – just turn up on the day. If you would like to find out more about the group, please email
