The worshiping community is the beating heart of the Cathedral. The congregation has an active role in the mission and ministry of the Cathedral and from it too come many of the volunteers who enhance the Cathedral’s life in many different ways. Here, day by day, with a handful of people or with hundreds, worship has been offered for nine hundred years. Whilst many choose to make the Cathedral their spiritual home others dip in and out as they feel a need. All find something here, whether it is quiet reflection, good preaching, wonderful music and uplifting and dignified worship.
Members of the congregation come from very diverse backgrounds. Here is a safe space, inclusive and welcoming whoever you are, whatever your history, your journey or your circumstances.
For those who are interested in getting more involved, there are plenty of opportunities for volunteering, working with children and young people, worship and services and much more.
The Cathedral Community Committee
The Community Committee is both advisory and consultative. It reports to the Cathedral Chapter on matters relating to the congregation and community as well as discussing matters of more general Church interest. It meets quarterly and its minutes and reports are published for all members of the congregation to see.
