Welcome to website for St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral


Dundee is currently under Level 4 restrictions in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic; lockdown restrictions have been introduced by the Scottish Government which means that churches cannot open for public worship or individual prayer.

During this period, Cathedral services will take place each Sunday at 10.30 am on Zoom.

The liturgy will be displayed on-screen during the service, however, copies are available by clicking on the links below:

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.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the cathedral cannot be open during the week.

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.  Further information at www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/ccf
