Who We Are
- St Paulís Cathedral seeks to enable people in all their diversity to encounter the transforming presence of God in Jesus Christ.
- As a community of worshippers, staff and volunteers we work with care and imagination to be a centre for welcome, worship and learning which inspires successive generations to engage with the richness of the Christian faith and its heritage.
- We aim to do this with confidence, compassion and creativity, promoting dignity and justice for everyone.
- We work with the Bishop and Diocese of London and the wider church, as a spiritual focus for London, the nation and the world.
The Chapter makes up the governing body of St Paulís and is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running of the Cathedral. The composition of the Chapter is a Dean, four Residentiary Canons with different responsibilities across the Cathedral, and three Lay Canons each with a different portfolio.
Members of Chapter
The Cathedral Council furthers and supports the work of the Cathedral in many capacities including spiritual, pastoral, evangelistic, missionary, social and ecumenical. It also reviews and advises upon the direction and oversight of that work by the Chapter.

College of Minor Canons
The Minor Canons have particular areas of specialist responsibility (ceremonial, pastoral and musical) though much of their ministry is shared and overlaps in many respects. They are responsible for the singing of the choral services. As priests of the Cathedral, they share a full part in celebrating the Eucharist, preaching, officiating at marriages and baptisms, and providing pastoral care and support to staff and visitors alike.
Members of College of Minor Canons
The Cathedralís administration is run by the Registrar, Nicholas Cottam CB OBE, backed by a number of committees. On a day-to-day basis, the Cathedralís staff ensure the smooth running of the building and welcome worshippers and visitors.
