Worship

St Paul’s Cathedral has been present on this site in one form or another for over 1,400 years. It has been built and rebuilt five times, but its main purpose has always been a place of worship and prayer.

Our services always free for everyone to attend.

The building itself may speak to us of the greatness of God or the cleverness of human beings; but the heart of the Cathedral is its worshipping human community. Prayer and worship is central to our daily pattern and music is integral to this tradition and number of our services sung by the Cathedral Choir or visiting choirs from around the world.

To worship is to open ourselves to God: to give to God our time and attention, our hopes and our fears. We begin and end each day with worship and public prayer.
 
During the day at hourly prayers we invite our visitors to join in the Lord’s Prayer, in their own language, as they pause and pray. We give thanks together for all that is good, and we pray for others and ourselves. We give our hearts and lives to Jesus Christ, and through him we become children of God.
 
You are welcome to be present at any of our acts of worship. You can simply listen, or join in with us as much as you are able to do. Our prayer for you is that you may encounter and be transformed by the presence of God in Jesus Christ, here in St Paul’s Cathedral.
