In the process of the survey we were given many good ideas about what members of our community would like to see being offered in addition to what was offered at the time, and how we could improve what we offered. Below is the list of ideas and each has a note of where we have responded (in italics), if we have done so. Obviously this survey was conducted two years ago and so not everything would be exactly the same as if we were to ask the questions today. If you have ideas which you would like us to consider, do let us know. We are always pleased to hear from you.
SUGGESTIONS FOR SERVICES
- For Anglicans, liturgy arguably reflects doctrine. If the Cathedral is ‘branded’ as being the Anglican Cathedral in SL, then in my view it has an onus to be faithful to the liturgical tradition.
All our liturgies are either published Anglican liturgies or follow the format of a Service of the Word, which is acceptable in Anglican churches.
- Use of agreed upon forms of service
Any worship leader must agree the format of services used with the Leadership Team.
- Have a default service that someone can step in and lead if leader doesn’t come
- More services
Since this survey was undertaken we have increased the number of regular services offered significantly.
- More variety across the Anglican tradition-spectrum
We offer a wide variety of special services at points in the Church year, particularly in Holy Week.
- Use chapel more
The chapel is used twice on most days for the daily offices.
