place of worship and prayer.

Cathedral's Adult Learning and Schools & Family Learning departments.

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.
