Week 18 - Heather Campbell

In this week's #BlessedIsShe, we meet Heather Campbell, Deputy Head Server at the Cathedral.

In this centenary year of women's suffrage, we are celebrating the women who play important roles in the daily life of the Cathedral community.

Each Saturday of the year, we will be sharing a different story here and across our social media.

What’s your connection with Bristol Cathedral?

I am deputy head server, and help with training new servers. I am also a member of the coffee rota.


How long have you been associated with the Cathedral?

Seventeen years.


What first drew you to Bristol Cathedral?

The choir, I first came to the cathedral as a chorister parent.

What have been some of your personal highlights?

There have been many, but the main ones include a concert performed by the choir before they went on tour to America, and Alistair playing his trumpet from the tower early in the morning on ascension day. I love serving for the ordination services each year. The televised Christmas service was a real highlight.


What would you like to see the Cathedral doing over the next few years?

I would like to see the Cathedral remain as a focal point for Christian worship in Bristol, with its friendly welcoming and approachable atmosphere, but at the same time maintaining high standards, in music, liturgy and preaching.


What does the Cathedral mean for you?

The cathedral has become an important part of my life and of my family. I have made some good friends over the years and it has given both my sons a place to grow and be encouraged. I have been moved by how supportive and welcoming people have been over the years, both staff and congregation.
