The Charge is the results and recommendations from the Visitation which took place at the Cathedral in 2016.  The Bishop carried out the Visitation to allow him to establish an overview of the Cathedral's worship and mission.  Though all diocesan bishops are entitled to carry out a Visitation, not all take the opportunity to do so.  But in a rapidly changing culture, which brings daily more challenges for the Church, Bishop Martin felt that carrying out an in-depth review of the life of the Cathedral would throw new light on the ways it can serve both its immediate community and the wider community of the church in Sussex.

The Visitation was carried out by a panel of people on behalf of the Bishop.  Click here for more information on the panel.
