A Message from the Dean

The last few years have been difficult for the cathedral, as for so many individuals and organisations, but as is so often the case in times of adversity, communities show their mettle. I’m so proud of staff and volunteers who have had to learn new skills, and have got by on considerably reduced resources. We have survived so far, but now face more straitened circumstances with rising costs.

As Dean, I over-use a metaphor of the Grapevine on the Trellis; the vine is the worship, ministry, education and music of this place - the core functions if you like. The trellis is the unseen but essential support for the vine; administrative and operational functions, staff and volunteer support, cleaning and insurance, lighting and heating. Sadly, without the trellis the vine cannot prosper, so I’m hoping to encourage, in these difficult times for us all, giving for the less glamorous part of our work.
