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.

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.
NB. Please note that the date of this reflective day has changed from the date advertised on the leaflet.
Autumn 2018 is the centenary of the end of the 1914-18 war – ‘the war to end all wars’. Since then, there has not been a single day when
the world has been at peace.

Why is peace so hard, and conflict so universal?
Jesus says that blessed – happy – are the peacemakers. But he doesn’t say it’s easy. In this reflective day, we will look at peace and
conflict within ourselves, in our communities and in politics. We will explore the obstacles and opportunities for transformation through Bible
stories, our own experiences, and the stories we tell about ourselves and others, including Pádraig Ó Tuama’s experiences of peacemaking and
conflict resolution in Northern Ireland.
Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and theologian based in Belfast. He teaches on religion, storytelling and conflict resolution, and is the leader of the
Corrymeela Community, the longest-established ecumenical peace and reconciliation community in Northern Ireland. His books include In the
Shelter: Finding a Home in the World (Hodder 2015) and Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community (Canterbury Press 2016).
