Sung Eucharist

NB From 5 November - 1 December, there are no services following COVID-19 guidelines. St Paul's is open for private prayer only, from 11am to 3pm each day. We are following Government and Church of England guidelines, and hope to resume services when we are able.  

Sung Eucharist could be considered the grandest service of the week at St Paul's, as the choir sings and the congregation receive the bread and the wine.

Sunday 11.30am  - 12.45pm

This service, held under the dome, is notable for the large number of clergy that take part and the length of the service - often just over an hour. Hymns are sung and a sermon is preached

The Choir sing the principal texts to music by composers ranging from the early Middle Ages to the present day. The Mass setting is made of the Gloria, Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei.

The Eucharist is celebrated in the Cathedral with great solemnity. The action of the ministers reflects the history of how the Eucharist has been celebrated over many centuries. It is an opportunity to deepen our communion with God and with one another.

All are very welcome to attend.
