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.

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.
On the eve of his death, Jesus commanded us to share bread and wine in remembrance of him and for many of us, the Eucharist lies at the
heart of our worshipping life. James Milne says it is a place where the past, present and the future collide, heaven and earth meet, and our
lives are transformed. But do we really experience it like that?

In this afternoon, we will explore the meaning of the Eucharist, and because this is not only a cerebral matter but a physical encounter in
which all our senses are engaged, we will uncover the sacrament’s rich layers of meaning through six objects, from the everyday to precious
works of art.
This afternoon is for anyone who is curious to find out about this core activity of the church’s life, as well as for those wanting to deepen
understanding of their own worshipping practice.
Participants are encouraged to stay for the Festal Eucharist for St Matthew’s Day, 5.00 – 6.00pm.
Canon James Milne is the Precentor of St Paul’s Cathedral, responsible for its liturgy and worship, and was previously Convenor of the Liturgy
Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
