Welcome to St. Paul’s Cathedral
SERVICES INSIDE CATHEDRAL 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. Likewise, the cathedral cannot be open during the week for personal prayer and reflection until further notice. Online liturgy resources will be provided to enable members of the cathedral congregation to worship at home and pastoral care will continue by various means of communication. In the case of any urgent pastoral need, please contact our Interim Priest, the Revd David Gordon, on 07 311 070 277.
WORSHIP FOR THE SUNDAY OF PENTECOST
Whilst we cannot be physically together as a community to worship on Sunday morning, we offer a downloadable liturgy to enable members of the cathedral community to take part in the gathering for worship on Zoom which will take place at 10.30 am this Sunday, or for folk to be able to worship and pray in their own time at home. (The liturgy will be shown on the screen during the Zoom service, but feel free to download it if you’d prefer your own copy to look at.)
Details for logging into the Zoom service will be sent round the congregation in Fr David’s weekly pastoral letter. If you any member of the congregation is not on the mailing list for that, please email email@example.com to get the log-in details. It is possible to log-in both online via the Zoom app (on desktop/laptop computer/tablet or mobile phone), or by telephone (landline or mobile).
The liturgy for the Sunday of Pentecost can be found here: The Sunday of Pentecost
We look forward to welcoming the Revd John Bell of the Iona Community to preach at our Zoom service.
For those not able to be present at the Zoom service, unfortunately, due to technical complications, we are unable to offer a recording of the whole service. However, we can offer a sound-file that was recorded by one of our choristers for the service of ‘Enemy of apathy’, written by John Bell and Graham Maule. Click on the link here: Enemy of apathy
PROVINCIAL SUNDAY WORSHIP ONLINE
As part of the ongoing response to the Coronavirus pandemic the Scottish Episcopal Church will be broadcasting video coverage of a pre-recorded Eucharistic service each Sunday via its website, social media channels and YouTube channel. The direct link to the YouTube channel is: https://www.youtube.com/user/scottishepiscopal A copy of the liturgy can be downloaded in advance of each service.

(The services will be available online after their first broadcast.)

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.
