Forum

The Forum is a congregational meeting, a little like a church’s Parochial Church Council. With about thirty elected members and another 10 who are there by virtue of their office, it is a useful discussion group, a vehicle for information sharing, and a sounding board for the congregation. Most meetings have some set agenda items — e.g., the Christmas Fair and major projects — and a chance to look at an issue in more depth: children’s work, the Discovery Centre, liturgy.

 

A list of the current members of Forum can be seen here.

 

Ideas for subjects for discussion from the congregation are welcomed and should be sent to the Secretary of the Cathedral Forum, Louise Martin (by email).

Revision of the Electoral Roll

 

Membership of our Electoral Roll is a sign of our belonging together as part of the Cathedral community. We still belong together even if we can’t physically be together in these strange times.

 

Owing to Covid-19, APCMs have been delayed with a consequential delay in finalising the 2020 Electoral Rolls. Accordingly, completed applications to join the revised Cathedral Electoral Roll are still welcome and should be emailed or left at the Cathedral office by Monday 12 October. For Electoral Roll purposes, joining Cathedral services online by Facebook etc very much counts as attending church.

 

A link to the blank Electoral Roll form can be found here. In 2019 we created a brand new Electoral Roll and thus everyone on the 2019 Roll is automatically on the 2020 revised Roll. 2019 members should not therefore re-apply.

 

Any questions to David Eaton, Electoral Roll Officer 07841 215182
