The Vergers are a busy team who are responsible for verging during services.

Verging refers to the carrying of the verge – the metal rod carried at the front of a procession or during a service when someone is led to the pulpit or lectern to preach or read.

Other duties undertaken by the vergers include preparing the interior of the Cathedral and associated spaces for services and special events.
