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.
Learning & Faith
Lifelong learning is a core part of the our work, delivered through a variety of events by St Paul's Institute, and the
Cathedral's Adult Learning and Schools & Family Learning departments.
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.
What is Christian Spirituality? Carys Walsh says that it is nothing less than experiencing the transformative power of God’s love, and
living this out. She also says that Christian Spirituality is immensely rich and varied, made new by God in every generation.

2 - 4.30pm
£18 (bursaries are available)
In this afternoon we take an introductory look at the dynamic nature of Christian spirituality. We will explore some of its contours and touch
on just a few of its many and varied expressions, from the 6th century Rule of St Benedict, a model of how to live a life of faith, balance and
harmony which continues to enrich lives inside and outside monasteries today, to the Franciscan vision of freedom in poverty and joy in
creation. We will also explore the Anglican tradition, deeply rooted in the sense of place, the beauty of language and the poetic tradition.
The Revd Dr Carys Walsh is in charge of training for curates in the Diocese of Peterborough. She has a Phd in Christian Spirituality, focussing
