Welcome to the website of St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral
SUNDAY SERVICES IN THE CATHEDRAL
10.30 am – Sung Eucharist (with organ & cantors)
8.00 pm – Compline
The move to Level 0 on 19th July 2021 means some changes to the health and safety guidelines for Cathedral services. Social and physical distancing measures, including the use of masks, are still in place, but distancing changes from 2 metres to 1 metre. This significantly increases the building’s capacity. Please continue to reserve a place to attend in person, so that the welcome team can make sure everyone has space and feels safe. Congregational singing returns, for the first time since March 2020. The Cathedral Eucharist will continue to be livestreamed.
To reserve a place at the Sunday Eucharist, please contact the office the week before (if possible, by 5.00 pm the preceding Friday evening), either by email: email@example.com or by telephone: 01382 22 44 86 (an answer-machine is available outwith office hours), leaving your name, a contact telephone number and how many places, if booking for your household.
The 10.30 am service will be streamed live on the Cathedral’s Facebook page. This can be accessed here: Cathedral livestream
For those joining online, the liturgy for the 10.30 am Eucharist on 1st August is available by clicking here: 10th Sunday after Pentecost
WEEKDAY OPENING FOR INDIVIDUAL PRAYER
The cathedral will be open for individual prayer on Fridays and Saturdays at the following times:
FRIDAY: 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm
SATURDAY: 2.00pm – 4.00 pm
Entry can be gained to the cathedral via the left-hand front door. To ensure everyone’s safety, a one-way system will be in place inside the cathedral, with exiting possible by the alternative front door. Hand sanitiser will be available for use upon entry to the cathedral. Visitors will be welcome to sit and pray, or to light a candle in St Roque’s Chapel. Cathedral stewards will be on duty at all times to welcome people and answer any queries. (All areas in the cathedral will be cleansed as appropriate after use.)
In the event of any urgent pastoral need, please contact the Provost on 07507 708632 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since it may still not be possible for everyone to come into the cathedral to leave a request for prayer in St Roque’s Chapel, we have set up an email address specifically for any prayer requests. If you have someone or something you would like to request prayer for, please email it to email@example.com Our Prayer Group continue to gather virtually to pray together and will be happy to include it in their prayers.

Welcome to St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee! Here, you will find a living and lively faith community right in the heart of Dundee’s vibrant city centre. We are a diverse group of people ranging from those who have been born and bred in Dundee to people from all over the world who come to Dundee for work or study.
Designed by the famous Victorian architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, our beautiful building with its soaring spire can be seen all over the city and dominates the skyline. As Cathedral, St Paul’s is the mother church of the Diocese of Brechin in the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Scottish province of the world-wide Anglican Communion and is the seat of the Bishop of Brechin, but primarily it is the spiritual home to the rich variety of different people that make up the Cathedral congregation.
We extend a warm welcome to all, whether you are looking for a spiritual home in Dundee or just passing through. People of all faiths and none are very welcome to visit the Cathedral at any time: to join us for a service, to light a candle, or simply enjoy the building and its atmosphere.
We work hard at being welcoming and inclusive of all, and constantly look for ways to creatively show the love of God in our city and beyond. Do come and join in one of our services or other activities if you are living or visiting our city – we would love to meet you – wherever you are on your own faith journey.

EQUAL ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS
The Cathedral sits upon the Castle Rock of Dundee and therefore all entrances are reached via flights of steps. We are currently working towards access for wheelchair users and anyone with mobility challenges via a series of lifts and ramps. In the meantime, we have a mechanical stair climber with trained operators who will be delighted to assist your access to the Cathedral. If possible, let us know in advance by ringing the Cathedral office (01382) 224486 so that we can have the stairclimber ready at the foot of the steps. Otherwise, simply notify someone on arrival that you would like to use the stair climber.
St Paul’s Cathedral is being supported by Climate Challenge Fund through its project to help cut local carbon emissions.
We are absolutely delighted that our carbon reduction project has secured a £150,000 share of the £15.3 million made available through the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF). The CCF is a Scottish Government grant programme, managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful. The CCF provides funding and support for community groups to help tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions. Our project at St Paul’s is aimed at educating the congregation and wider community about how we can all help to reduce carbon emissions. Part of the project will also include the installation of an energy efficient lighting system in the Cathedral itself reducing carbon emissions through lighting by over 72%. The CCF has awarded 1,097 grants totalling £101 million to 658 communities since its introduction in 2008, for projects involving energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food and resource efficiency.
