Registered Charity No: 1051168 (England & Wales).

The Perpetual Trust is working to secure the future of Hereford Cathedral, its choir, its education, its ministry and its fabric. The cathedral, in its various forms, has been serving and inspiring the people of the Marches since 676AD, which we continue to do.

  • Music and liturgy: one of the finest choirs in the country, which still sings eight choral services each week. We continue to play our part in training a new generation of choristers and music scholars.
  • Inspiring children and young people about their heritage and history through our extensive schools and outreach programmes.
  • Ministering to a large rural community and all those who cross our threshold.
  • Caring for our heritage, whether restoring the building or acting as the custodian for some of the world’s greatest documents including the Hereford Magna Carta and the Mappa Mundi, the oldest complete map of the world.

A legacy, however large or small, in support of our work will be greatly appreciated and will enable us to continue to inspire and support future generations. Thank you for considering us.
