The Anglo Russian Support Group

The cathedral has an active mission link with the parish of Kondopoga in North Russia. An energetic group of cathedral congregation members and volunteers frequently organise events to help raise money to support both the link and education work surrounding it within the cathedral. 

Last year, the Education Department used donated money to:

  • Sponsor the cathedral’s Easter Garden
  • Provide a set of youth bibles for the cathedral's youth groups
  • Resource a self-guided numeracy trail
  • Purchase a parachute in the colours of the liturgical year
  • Purchase a small wooden table and chairs for the Children’s Chapel
  • Purchase a lego table for the cathedral Refectory Cafe

Refectory Cafe


The Refectory, built in the 13th century, was the dining hall for the 40 monks who belonged to the community at the time. The Refectory is open from 9:30 - 4:30 and a delicious lunch menu, fabulous cakes and free Wi-Fi!
