St Paul’s has an exciting mission and ministry full of opportunities and challenges which touches the lives of over a million people a year – including visitors, worshippers, young people, and those who follow us online around the world.

St Paul’s Cathedral is a vibrant place of worship and mission, a national treasure and a London icon. St Paul’s draws together in its ministry and daily life a range of activities and aspirations. Amongst other roles, it is the Cathedral of the Diocese of London and the seat of its Bishop, a national and international spiritual focus, a space for worship and holiness, a place of debate and challenge, an icon of resilience in the face of adversity, an architectural heritage centre, a partner in the City of London, a visitor attraction, and a commercial enterprise. As a Christian church, St Paul’s seeks to preach and share the Gospel, yet is also ‘owned’ by many who would profess no Christian faith.
