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.
Steve Chalke wants to start a new conversation about Paul the Apostle. He says that too often his words have been borrowed, lifted out
of context and then put into the service of ideas, doctrines and behaviours which not only would he never have owned, but also would have
strongly opposed. He says it is time to let Paul speak again.
He will argue that Paul has been so radically misunderstood that, for instance, original sin was never part of his thinking, and that
justification by faith is actually based on a mistranslation of his words. Paul’s revolutionary message is that salvation is a gift of
God’s grace to everyone, a result entirely of God’s faithfulness, not to do with our works, worthiness or even faith.
Join us as Steve invites us to hear Paul’s own words afresh, and in them find a new reformation and a new way of following Christ which
offers liberation and welcome.
