Attending Services

Due to changes in State Government requirements from Sun 28th March, we will no longer be asking congregants to pre-book to attend services. Instead, visitors and worshippers will be asked to check in using a Victoria Government QR code to record their details. 

To prepare for this change we encourage you to download the Services Victoria application on to your phone or tablet device by following the instructions on this website: go.vic.gov.au/check-in (best to open it on the phone or tablet you wish to download the application on).

You will then need to open this application to use the QR Code facility to check-in on arrival at the Cathedral, by pointing your camera at one these posters to scan the code. While we adjust to this new change, Cathedral Staff will be at the door to assist you. Paper registration will be available for those unable to use the QR Code facility, however we need the majority of people to use the QR Code to maintain our current density limits.

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.

The Cathedral’s musical life is coordinated by our Director of Music. A designated Music Foundation was established in 1993 to encourage philanthropic donors to ensure that the musical life of the Cathedral is resourced.

Sermons

In this section, you can read a selection of sermons preached this year at St Paul’s Cathedral, or by the clergy of St Paul’s in other places. Sermons from previous years are available in our Sermon Archive.

Worship and Prayer from home

This page contains prayers and intercessions for personal or group use, special prayers for use if it isn’t possible to meet in church, and a simple form of prayer for the morning and evening, which can be downloaded, printed, and shared with those remaining at home or who are unable to access the Internet.
