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.
Learning & Faith
Lifelong learning is a core part of the our work, delivered through a variety of events by St Paul's Institute, and the
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.
What I want to say now - retired bishops speak out
28 April 2014
Four retired Church of England bishops will come to St Paul's as part of a May preaching series, with the
brief that they can talk about whatever they wish.
What I want to say now, set over the four Sundays in May, will see the former bishops of Chelmsford,
Bath & Wells, Southwark and St Albans take to the pulpit.
No longer in public office but still part of a world and church undergoing huge challenges and changes, we look forward to hearing the
distilled wisdom they believe it is urgent to share at this moment.
