Round Table Discussions - Come and Contribute

You are invited to join us to develop the Cathedral’s response to the Visitation report and make your contribution to the Cathedral's future. A series of three Round Table Discussions will follow straight on after Evensong, and take place in the north transept of the Cathedral. The first two sessions focus on key themes from the 2017 Cathedral Visitation Report. The final asks us to look forwards and think about how we resource the vision and mission of the Cathedral.
