Saint Paul’s Cathedral Dundee

Mosaic and candles

Welcome to St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee – a living and lively community of faith at the heart of this city.

Built to be a place of inspiration and worship for the people of Dundee, St Paul’s was designed by its founder, Bishop Alexander Forbes, and its architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, to offer beauty and peace in the centre of a busy city. It has continued to do so ever since it was dedicated on All Saints Day 1865, and its soaring spire is a landmark for miles around. St Paul’s is the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Brechin in the Scottish Episcopal Church (the Scottish province of the world-wide Anglican Communion) and the seat of the Bishop of Brechin. Its doors are open to all – all are welcome, whether you come for a peaceful five minutes or for a lifetime, to pray or to wonder, to look or to listen, to join a service or light a candle.

The Cathedral community is 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 the city for work or study. The community of St Paul’s works hard to be welcoming and inclusive of all, and is constantly looking for creative ways to show the love of God in our city and beyond. Do come and join a service or another activity if you are living in or visiting Dundee. There is a warm welcome waiting here for you.

The Cathedral publishes a weekly email newsletter, The Rock, with details of current activities, services and resources. Sign up here to receive it (you can unsubscribe at any time). You can also follow the Cathedral on Facebook and Twitter.

The Cathedral is open:
Monday – Friday 9.00 am – 4.00 pm
Saturday 2.00 – 4.00 pm
for services on Sunday

The Cathedral sits on the Castle Rock of Dundee and at present has no step-free access. We are working towards improving this situation. 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, ring the Cathedral Office (01382 224486) to let us know in advance 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.

In the event of any urgent pastoral need, please contact the Provost.
Prayer requests can be posted in the box in St Roque’s Chapel or emailed to The Cathedral Prayer Group meets weekly (online) and will be happy to include requests in their prayers.

St Paul’s Cathedral aims to be a safe, welcoming and peaceful place for everyone. You can find out about the Cathedral’s safeguarding policy or report a concern here.
