All regular worshipping members of our congregation, staff and volunteers are represented by the Cathedral Community Forum (CCF). This is an elected body, which meets every three months and considers concerns and comments raised by its members. It also receives information and presentations from the Cathedral Chapter with the opportunity to add feedback - so, it has a positive role in representing the peoples’ views to Chapter, and in providing a channel for disseminating information and news. Two members of the CCF are elected to sit on the Cathedral Council, and the Forum also has representatives on Deanery Synod and on Churches Together in Salisbury.
One of its most important functions is to consider the large number of requests received from local, national and international charities and then to make recommendations for the distribution of a proportion of the offertory and other collections which are available for charitable giving.
The Forum members (listed below) are happy to hear any views from the congregation on any aspect of the activities of the Cathedral. Anyone with any comments is invited to write to the chairman of the Forum or to speak to any Forum member - Forum members can be identified by badges and will be present in the Cathedral in particular following the Sunday morning Eucharist.
The forum is at present chaired by John Pitt-Brooke, with Colin Smith as Treasurer and Jill Horsburgh as Secretary. Other members of the forum are: Rosemary Allen, Liz Barnard, Chris Barnard, Kate Beckett, Vanessa Coryndon, Russell Cruse, Dudley Heather, Paul Smith, John Tarrant, Rosie Whittock and Sonia Woolley.
