1 Project Pilgrim Phase One: The Heart of Gloucester

2 PROJECT PILGRIM Project Pilgrim at Gloucester Cathedral is an ambitious ten-year programme of activity and capital development that supports the 21 st Century mission to be In tune with heaven, in touch with daily life. It aims to bring the Cathedral s heritage and religious purpose to life so that all people, whatever their age, background or faith, are provided with engaging opportunities to learn about and respond to it in ways which are personal to them. WHY? The magnificent Cathedral at Gloucester stands on a site of Christian worship that stretches back fifteen hundred years. Its heritage and historic importance in the story of England is unquestionable; but this story could be told and celebrated better and the lessons from the stories revealed, to inform the present and future. It is a truly inspiring building and the most loved of all in the city. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people of faith, and of no faith, visit to enjoy its splendour, history, events and quietness. For some it s a place of worship, for others it s a source of local pride; many others visit just to experience tranquility and a sense of place. Here, the spiritual and secular worlds join to share a common purpose in line with the Cathedral s mission - In tune with heaven, in touch with daily life. It is a place where interesting conversations take place on the role of cathedrals, heritage and the arts in the 21 st century; it is committed to sustainability and seeks to lessen its environmental impact, whilst increasing its contribution to wellbeing, both spiritual and social. Project Pilgrim at Gloucester Cathedral has the capacity to act as the tipping point in the heritagebased regeneration of the city. Improvements to the fabric, setting and interpretation will provide a focal and rallying point for the whole city. Paul James, Leader of Gloucester City Council The Cathedral is open to anyone and has made great progress in reaching out, breaking down barriers and being welcoming. It has innovated; linking the spiritual with the arts through the amazingly successful Crucible contemporary sculpture exhibitions and celebrated music programmes. In a world where cathedrals are increasingly asking the public to pay for admission, the Gloucester response is to hold firm to no charge. Nevertheless, there are many who, although aware of the Cathedral, have yet to experience its wonders and power; there is a pressing need to reach out, to connect and engage with the communities of Gloucester, the county and beyond. Gloucester is a city with a proud history and heritage that reaches back to the Roman period. It is a city with a mixed and complex identity and with a diverse population, but it has also suffered from periods of inappropriate and unsympathetic development. In recent years investment to encourage regeneration has focussed upon sites of heritage importance, such as Gloucester Docks. Gradually, the rich and deep heritage of the city is being revealed and connections made between these hubs. Yet, the enormous potential for heritagecentred economic and cultural regeneration has yet to be realized. At the heart of the city s heritage is the Cathedral. 2 3
