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.

For a thousand years, scholars and theologians have focussed on men’s voices and stories in the Bible and that has brought us vital, rich and
multilayered insights, but the women have been largely overlooked. Feminist theology has led to revelatory new insights about what we can learn
from the words and experiences of women in the Bible, and what attending to their voices might mean for us today.
Liz Adekunle will explore the stories of some of the most fascinating Biblical women, the importance of their roles and the significance of
their ministries, focussing particularly on the compelling stories of Hagar in the Book of Genesis and Mary, the mother of Jesus.
The Ven Liz Adekunle is the Archdeacon of Hackney, a member of the Archbishops’ Task Group on Evangelism and Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen.
She was previously Chaplain and Acting Dean at St John’s College, Cambridge and is currently working on a PhD in Feminist Theology at Cambridge
