St Paul’s Cathedral has been here for over 1,400 years. It has been built and rebuilt five times, and always its main purpose has been as a
place of worship and prayer.
St Paul's, with its world-famous dome, is an iconic feature of the London skyline. Step inside and you can enjoy the Cathedral's awe-inspiring
interior, and uncover fascinating stories about its history.
Learning & Faith
Lifelong learning is a core part of the our work, delivered through a variety of events by St Paul's Institute, and the
Cathedral's Adult Learning and Schools & Family Learning departments.
History & Collections
For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City. The present Cathedral is the
masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.
Widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful buildings and a powerful symbol of the splendour of London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a
breathtaking events venue.
Events, services and music, September - November 2017
Some events not only leave their mark on history, but change the world.
The Reformation of the Church 500 years ago was one such event - triggered when Martin Luther, so legend has it, nailed his 95 theses to the
church door in Wittenberg. The epoch-making transformations his theses brought about had an impact throughout every continent.
Today, half a millennium later, we can observe the Reformation's long-term global impact.
The anniversary year of 2017 has seen the staging of several prestigious events at St Paul's dedicated to this influence, an influence that
can still be felt today.
One event remains - a St Paul's Institute evening looking at Max Weber's Protestant Work Ethic and how this relates to the future of work.
Most events are completely free (there is only a charge for the late openings) and as with everything we do at St Paul's you are all welcome,
regardless of who you are or what you do or don't believe.
