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.
Most people find prayer hard. But there can be ways in which, by grace, we can be in touch with our capacity to know and feel the
presence of God in all things.

St Ignatius was a rare and gifted teacher in helping people to discover how to do this. Both extraordinarily modern in his understanding of
human psychology and breathtakingly free in his approach to prayer, his insights have offered countless people a way to be in touch with God’s
limitless desire to break through and surprise us, and our own built-in ability to respond.
Just before Lent, we will spend an afternoon exploring his way of prayer, using silence, imagination and the everyday reality of our own lives.
