The Greater Churches Network

The Greater Churches Network

The Greater Churches Network is an informal association of non-cathedral churches which, by virtue of their great age, size, historical, architectural, or ecclesiastical importance, display many of the characteristics of a cathedral. Most churches in the group also fulfil a role which is additional to that of a normal parish church. It aims to provide help and mutual support in dealing with the special problems of running a ‘cathedral-like’ church within the organisational and financial structure of a parish church.
