What's On

Welcome to The Gathering 2015, a festival of faith organised by the Diocese of Canterbury and held every two years in the beautiful surroundings of Canterbury Cathedral and its Precincts.

What happens?

All are welcome to enjoy a day of stimulating talks, creative and interactive activities, entertainment, affirming worship and Bible study. Our theme this year is 'food for the journey...' and is inspired by John 6 verse 27- “…do not work for the food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life.”

Friday Night Kitchen

The Friday night event makes a welcome return for 2015 with Friday Night Kitchen. Officially launching The Gathering, enjoy a convivial evening with the Archbishop of Canterbury who will, with a splash of live cooking and a generous helping of specially invited dinner guests, explore the spirituality of eating together. More information.


The main event, and a day which all are sure to enjoy as The Gathering brings to the Cathedral its usual mix of stimulating talks, creative activities, entertainment, affirming worship, bible study. More information.
