Celebrate the birth of Jesus and a new relationship with God at St Paul's Cathedral this Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. Hear again the message of the angels and, in heart and mind, go to Bethlehem and discover the peace of the Christ Child through the pages of scripture and the carols of the choir.
