Greater Churches

The Greater Churches Network was formed in 1991 ‘as a support group for clergy and laity who had responsibility for churches with a “cathedral-like” building and ministry, but without the resources available to cathedrals in the Church of England’. In June 2019, it was announced that this Network had been formally closed, being replaced by a new Major Churches Network, anticipated to cover some 300 Churches in England, with associate membership available to analogous churches in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
