The Company of St. Peter - Our Projects
Following the hugely successful restoration Campaign of the late 90’s, led by then Chairman Sir Stephen Hastings, which raised a staggering £7.3 million, the Company of St Peter has proved a crucial support in assisting with funding other essential projects. These include restoration of the Nave Ceiling, replacement of the Tesserae Pavement and music endowment.
By encouraging annual contributions to a membership scheme from loyal and generous Cathedral supporters, we are able to manage our fundraising more effectively. In return, membership provides special benefits including an exclusive programme of events, special invitations to Cathedral events and participation in the ecclesiastical and other functions of the Church.
Examples of the diversity of this support include:
|New chairs for the Cathedral
||Contribution to salary of a youth officer
||Support for Choir tours
|Refurbishment of clergy residences
||Contribution to salary of Education Officer
||Individual voice training for Choristers
|Conservation of wall paintings
||New orders of service for Evensong
|Repairs to ancient walls
||Interactive screens for visitors
||Extensive provision of new music
|Replacement of lighting system
||Funding for Cathedral Open Day
||50% funding of Lay Clerk salaries
Despite our success, we are always grateful for new members and urge support from as many as possible, not only to provide financial security for this magnificent building and its long rich heritage but also to promote a wide interest in all its activities.
