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.

breathtaking events venue.

From the steps up to the larger-than-life front door which tell us we are entering a greater world, to the sanctuary where the things of earth are
lifted into God’s sight, church buildings are time machines where we understand our humanity in the light of all eternity.
James Milne will take us on a pilgrimage through St Paul’s Cathedral, exploring the sacred meanings of the building. This is not an architectural
tour, but a pilgrimage in one particular church which will illuminate how the things of heaven reach the people of earth in all churches.
The Revd James Milne is Sacrist at St Paul’s, sharing responsibility for liturgy at the cathedral, and was previously Rector of St Bride’s Church,
Glasgow and Convenor of the Liturgy Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
