Getting Involved

Each Sunday as people enter the churches they are welcomed, handed a book and shown where to sit.

During the service intercessors, readers, servers and chalice bearers all help to make the service flow smoothly.

As people leave the Cathedral there is a welcome table for newcomers and, after the main services, refreshments are served. We are grateful for a small band of people who regularly bake cookies and cakes. All the above tasks are done voluntarily. Without these volunteers, we would not be a church.

If you are interested in getting more involved you may find the information below helpful. You are also welcome to contact the clergy directly.

Flower Guild

This is a group which arranges flowers for the Cathedral every week (except Advent & Lent). They also provide a service for weddings & other special occasions.

The Flower Guild is administered by Mrs V. Ip at the Cathedral Office.

Servers

The Servers Guild is a voluntary group assisting with all services at the Cathedral.

Servers help the officiant at each service by:

Preparing the altar
Checking the correct books are available
Leading procession
Presenting the offerings to the priest
Administer the Chalice at the Eucharist (after being specially licensed by the Bishop)
The Chief Server is Mr James Choo, who also draws up a monthly rota.
