Cathedrals Plus is the network for all those engaged in welcoming visitors to places of Christian worship. The two main strands are those responsible for visitor care and marketing and those responsible for education. Membership includes almost every Anglican Cathedral, several Roman Catholic Cathedrals, Abbeys, Shrines, Minsters, Greater churches; it caters for every place of Christian worship that welcomes a significant number of visitors.
An annual conference is held over three days, usually during September, where delegates have the opportunity to take part in training sessions and workshops and are able to share experiences and network with friends and colleagues old and new.
Regional training sessions for both strands are held during the year, free of charge for members. They also have access to email chatlines which give the opportunity to share good practice, seek advice and have discussions with fellow members.
Cathedrals Plus website, www.cathedralsplus.org.uk, has the facility for member organisations to advertise job vacancies free of charge. Members have links to their own websites and take turns to appear in the Spotlight on the home page.
A newsletter is sent to all members twice yearly and a detailed Conference report goes to all members following each annual conference.
Cathedrals Plus is supported by its Secretary, Judy Davies.
