Cathedrals are unique and wonderful spaces, providing welcome and inspiration to pilgrims, visitors and future generations.  They are integral to their local communities (never more so than during the coronavirus pandemic) but also recognised nationally and globally as key heritage sites.  

The Cathedrals Team at Wrigleys recognise that the balance between being a place of worship and a commercial visitor attraction is not always an easy one to strike.  Cathedrals also face unique challenges in terms of sustainability, how they are structured and how they work within the wider Church.

The Cathedrals Team understand these challenges first-hand and work closely with our Cathedral clients to find practical solutions that are in keeping with their Cathedrals’ core purposes and allow them to prosper in their work and mission.

Our partner Elizabeth Wilson is currently the Chair of the Ecclesiastical Law Society and many of our lawyers are also members. We keep fully up-to-date with the current changes and challenges affecting cathedrals and are always pleased to be able to provide specialist support and advice.

Cathedrals Measure 2021 

Anglican Cathedrals are governed by legislation and on 29 April 2021, the Cathedrals Measure 2021 received Royal Assent and became law. The Measure contains some fundamental changes for Anglican Cathedrals, most notably that over the next few years they will each need to register as a charity and be co-regulated by the Charity Commission and the Church Commissioners.

Any Cathedral needing advice on what the Measure will mean for them and how they can prepare for it, should contact Elizabeth Wilson.
