Membership in the Christ Church Cathedral Chancel Guild is by invitation of the dean, our honorary president, and is open to females and males.
The guild is entrusted with the care of the linens, silver, brass, and furnishings of the five altars in the Cathedral. The flower team arranges and maintains the flowers week by week, as well as flowers for memorials, weddings, and decorations for major festivals.
There is an educational component to the guild. During the year we enjoy a wonderful flower arranging demonstration, and have informative speakers. We have an annual corporate communion presided over by the dean where our new members are installed. As well as lots of hard work keeping the altars sparkling and well adorned with flowers and fresh linen, we enjoy a lot of fellowship, week by week, and at our annual picnic and Annual General Meeting luncheon.
Members consider it a privilege to serve and recognize the trust placed in us.
