Constitution And Governance

The Cathedral constitution governs how Newport Cathedral operates within the community and within the Church in Wales.
You can see below the membership as at January 2022 of the College of Canons, and of Cathedral Chapter.
In November 2020 the original Parochial Church Council (PCC) was wound up and under the new Constitution formation of the Cathedral Chapter was begun. Canons, both Clerical and Lay, are being appointed to the College of Canons.
At the present time they also form the membership of the Interim Chapter. In due course, when the full quota for the College of Canons has been appointed, a number of those will be elected to the definitive Chapter, as stipulated in the new Constitution.

Under the Constitution the Cathedral community is represented by a non-executive Congregational Committee, with representational links to Chapter through the elected Cathedral Wardens.
This committee meets about six times a year to discuss issues raised by members of the congregation and to liaise with Chapter about these and other matters.

The Cathedral Congregational Meeting (AGM) is held before the end of April each year. Elections, with voting by those on the Cathedral Electoral Roll, are held when required.

The Constitution sets out the Vision Statement and the organisational structure for Cathedral Governance.
