Friends of the Cathedral

Do you love St Peter’s Cathedral?

The Friends have a long history of supporting the Cathedral: the inaugural meeting of the Friends occurred as far back as Thursday, December 8th, 1932.

Income from annual and life memberships and events held throughout the year help the Friends in their common aim of enhancing and enriching St Peter’s as a beautiful and sacred place and that of preserving the Cathedral for future generations. The Friends also communicate with their word-wide circle of Friends; past members and those who can no longer attend are sent our monthly Cathedral Notes. These can be sent by hard copy or electronically – please contact Brian White on if you are a member and not receiving them. We appreciate your email addresses which help us defray costs, but realise that some people would prefer a hard copy to hand around to friends!

We urgently need your support.

Membership renewals are due now at the beginning of each calendar year and are not only limited to those who are already parishioners. Interested people from here, near and far away are invited to join.

The PDF membership form can be downloaded here and sent to the Cathedral office or you can pick   up the form at the back of the Cathedral. Membership renewals can be paid at the AGM.

The AGM of the Friends is planned for February 23rd at 5pm in the CP Hall. The guest speaker is the Rev’d Dr Lynn Arnold. Please make a diary note of this important event. Support is urgently need for the committee, with the retirement of several valuable members. Please seriously consider your involvement in order to maintain The Friends’ very existence into the future!

For more information please contact Zena Chapman on or Gerry Varley on

We would like to fill the CP hall as we did last year with the Hymn singing and mulled wine evening last year!!!
