How we are governed

Ely Cathedral is a charitable and ecclesiastical corporation.

Chapter is our governing body and is supported in its work by three statutory committees:

Nominations Committee

Finance Committee

Audit & Risk Committee

The members of Chapter are listed here.

We publish a summary of each Chapter meeting shortly after it is held. Summaries are available for download below.

The Cathedrals Measure 2021 sets out in law how we are governed. Our constitution and statutes are available for download below.

Day-to-day decision-making is delegated by Chapter to the Cathedral's Senior Management Group and others. This is set out in the scheme of delegation, which is available for download below.
