Services & Music

St Paul’s is open for worship every day of the year.

You would be most welcome to join our congregations for worship on Sundays, or during the week. Details of special services can be found in the events section of this website. Full details of our regular worship can be found below.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak from Monday, 23 March, all public worship and other Cathedral activities will be suspended. The Cathedral will remain open 10am to 4pm as a place for quiet prayer, however it will close half an hour prior to advertised services. Services will be live-streamed via our various social media channels. See here for details on how to join our worship.


Regular Services

St Paul’s Cathedral will suspend all public worship from Monday, 23 March. For as long as feasible, we will livestream worship led by a team of ordained, lay and music ministers.

Details of our Sunday and Daily Worship during the COVID-19 Pandemic is available here: https://cathedral.org.au/covid19/webcasts-livestream/

A prayer for those affected by COVID-19:
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

Music

Music plays an integral part in the worship of St Paul’s Cathedral. Since 1888, the Cathedral’s Choir of Boys and Men has been an important part of the musical life of our city. Since 2016, a new Choir of Girls, Women and Men shares in the musical leadership of our Cathedral. Three organists contribute to our rich musical tradition. 

Daily Services
