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.
St Paul’s Cathedral warmly welcomes enquiries for weddings and services of blessing, baptisms and confirmations, funerals and memorial services and other special services.
Alongside our regular pattern of daily worship, the Cathedral is able to host a number of special services during the year. We are always happy to consider requests to use the Cathedral and to discuss your particular circumstances.
In this section, you can read a selection of sermons preached each 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.
Share your prayer requests with us by emailing email@example.com. Prayers submitted will be offered during our 12.15pm Lunchtime Eucharist.
