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.
Jesus’s resurrection is the heart and foundation of our faith as Christians: as St Paul said, if Christ was not raised from the dead, then
our faith is in vain. Resurrection is central not only to what we believe about God and Jesus, but to our understanding of ourselves: if we believe
in resurrection, nothing can ever be the same again.

In this reflective day, Paula Gooder will look at each of the four Gospels’ startlingly different accounts of the resurrection. In each one, Jesus
has different encounters with his friends and followers, from the women who first met him at the empty tomb on Easter morning, through his
followers recognising him in the breaking of the bread that evening, to the later encounters with his frightened, doubting and ultimately joyful
Paula will lead us on a biblical exploration of what resurrection means, what it teaches us about life and death, and ultimately what it actually
means to be a Christian.
Dr Paula Gooder is a renowned Biblical Scholar and Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral. She is the author of numerous academic and popular books of
Biblical theology, including Journey to the Empty Tomb and This Risen Existence: the Spirit of Easter (both Canterbury Press).
