Welcome to St. Paul’s Cathedral
CATHEDRAL SERVICES SUSPENDED
Due to the current health and safety concerns surrounding the Coronavirus, following Government instructions, the College of Bishops have advised that all services in Scottish Episcopal Churches be suspended until further notice. Sadly, this means that there will be no Sunday or weekday services in St Paul’s until further notice.
SUNDAY WORSHIP AT HOME
Whilst, at this time, we cannot be physically together as a community to worship on a Sunday morning, we offer a downloadable liturgy to enable you to worship and pray in your own home.
In case you’re missing singing in church, two hymns have been included along with two organ accompaniments – feel free to use them to sing along with, or feel free to miss the hymns out if you’d rather not!
The liturgy for this Sunday can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c7l7lah5jbsuswe/Sun%2029th%20March%202020%20-%20Lent%205%20A.ii.pdf?dl=0
Links for organ music to accompany the two hymns are included in the liturgy.
If you are reading the liturgy on your computer screen, simply click on the links to get the hymn accompaniment;
if you have printed the liturgy out, you will need to use these links to download them:
– organ music for the first hymn (Spirit of truth and grace) can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/18wpvpwc44pmmv1/Spirit%20of%20truth%20and%20grace.m4a?dl=0
– organ music for the second hymn (O Holy Spirit) can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ya5jgvy7eou4oj6/O%20Holy%20Spirit.m4a?dl=0
– there is also a link to a choral anthem that may be used for a time of reflection after Fr David’s written reflection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5Akz6J8Rw0
Wherever you are, let us take comfort from our opening acclamation that, although scattered at this time, as a community of faith, still we meet in the presence of God, and we do not meet alone.
SUNDAY WORSHIP ONLINE
As part of the ongoing response to the Coronavirus pandemic the Scottish Episcopal Church (SEC) will be broadcasting video coverage of Eucharistic services via its website, social media channels and YouTube channel. The direct link to the YouTub channel is: https://www.youtube.com/user/scottishepiscopal A copy of the liturgy can be downloaded from here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0vfk04dqweuhdqa/AADhwXXaQbIoriW6ocQInVbua?dl=0 The web page with more information about broadcasts is located at www.scotland.anglican.org/broadcast-sunday-worship
The services will be broadcast at 11am on a Sunday, to coincide with when many people would normally be worshipping.
The website will also contain a downloadable video and audio format of the service. A new service will be broadcast every Sunday on the SEC website, to allow all congregations to worship.
In advance of the broadcast of each provincial service, the Liturgy will be available to download from the SEC website. The services will be available online after their first broadcast.

2020 LUNCHTIME CONCERTS

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.
CATHEDRAL OPENING TIMES
During the month of August, the Cathedral is open Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm; and Sunday 10am to 12.30pm & 7.45pm to 9.00pm.
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.
