Derby Cathedral has been awarded a grant of £270,800 to cover overheads, IT and digital resources and Personal Protective Equipment required as a result of COVID.
The Cathedral will use some of the grant to improve its online presence and digital capabilities, making it more accessible to the City of Derby, the County of Derbyshire, the Diocese of Derby, its many visitors and a wide range of worshippers.
It is one of more than 400 organisations across the country to receive a lifesaving financial boost from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund to help them through the coronavirus pandemic.
The Very Reverend Peter Robinson, Dean of Derby, said: “Derby Cathedral is delighted and thankful to be the recipient of a Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage grant.
"The money will help us to cover essential costs incurred throughout the COVID-19 pandemic at a time when our income from collections, events and hires has been drastically reduced."
Welcome to Derby Cathedral!
Welcome! Thank you for exploring this website where you will find lots of information about Derby Cathedral, one of Derby’s most beautiful and historic sites as well as the home of a vibrant Christian community and the venue for many exciting and innovative events today.
Worship has been offered on this site for more than a thousand years, and the present building goes back nearly three hundred years with a tower which is considerably older.
Inside the Cathedral you will find important monuments of Derby’s past, such as the tomb of Bess of Hardwick, the wrought iron screen by Robert Bakewell, and the memorial of Florence Nightingale.
You will also find a place to be still and prayerful, either by yourself – the tiny St. Katharine’s Chapel in the crypt is perfect for this – or in one of the daily services, many of which include wonderful choral music.
Morning Prayer Monday - Friday at 8.30am and the Sunday Eucharist at 10.45am are live streamed. Full details of how to access these and other online worship resources can be found here>>
