The Cathedral Council provides the
Dean and Trustees with support, advice and co-operation in conducting the work
of the Cathedral. The Council is chaired by the Dean and meets at the
Cathedral every month.
The agenda for each meeting is
prepared by the Honorary Secretary in consultation with the Dean. The Council
divides into five committees, which meet separately and deal with an area of
activities affecting the Cathedral:
& Furnishing Committee (F& F) – to look after matters regarding the
maintenance and upgrade of the fabric, facility and property of the Cathedral.
and General Purposes Committee (F&GP) – to look after the financial aspect
of the Cathedral to support her ministry, programme and life of the Cathedral.
Committee – to develop, support and plan the outreach effort of the Cathedral.
Committee – to support ministries such as Lunch Time Recitals, Public Holiday
Cathedral Minders, Tour Ministry and Michaelmas Fair.
Ministry Committee – to coordinate and support the ministries of liturgy and
worship, mission and evangelism, communications and publicity, fellowship and
congregational development, nurture and spirituality, outreach, pastoral
care, Chinese ministry and Filipino ministry and act as a think tank to address
the concerns and deficiencies in the life of the Cathedral.
Each of these committees reports
monthly to the Council.
