We are very sorry to say that as the cathedral is closed to the public, all of our events have been cancelled until further notice.


During this time, we will be posting specially-commissioned reflections from leading Christian writers about Christianity in the extraordinary times we find ourselves in. They will include Lucy Winkett during Holy Week, Paula Gooder on Resurrection in a time of crisis, and later Pádraig Ó Tuama on poetry, Gillian Straine on healing and John Swinton on vulnerability, among many others. 


They will be sent to our mailing list Monday to Friday, and we’ll post them on social media too. To join our mailing list, please click here.


Rest assured that we are using this season of home-working to continue to plan more events for you to enjoy in the future. And meanwhile do browse through our extensive resource of films and podcasts of previous events here. Films include Paula Gooder talking about the Body and Christianity, Michael Curry on The Jesus Movement Now, and Rowan Williams on Jesus Christ: the Unanswered Questions. Our most popular film is David Suchet’s electric reading of the whole of the Gospel of Mark live at St Paul’s in 2017. 


Would you support us?

As well as our great sadness at having to close the cathedral and cancel our events, it means that, financially, we are facing a very difficult year as we have no government or central church funding and are reliant on paying visitors for our income. If you feel able to support us with a donation, however small (or large!) we’d be so grateful, and it will mean that we can reopen to all and get up and running again as quickly and fully as possible when our doors reopen. Please click here to make a donation. Thank you.
