place of worship and prayer.

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.

Both walks will be followed by Choral Evensong at St Paul's from 5 - 5.45pm
The word ‘saunter’ comes from the French ‘à la sainte terre’ meaning ‘to the sacred place’. Brian Draper invites us to take
our spiritual inspiration as well as our pace from that. This autumn prayer walk will take us through nature, city streets and by water, reflecting
on autumnal themes of beauty, change and loss. We will walk about four miles and end at St Paul’s Cathedral for Evensong.
