The Friends of St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee (Scottish Charity no. SC050159) support the development of the Cathedral and the care of its fabric so that this unique building can be in the 21st century, as its founders hoped, a place of light, peace and beauty for all the people of Dundee.

St Paul’s was founded by Bishop Alexander Forbes and designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. Completed in 1855, it is one of the finest Victorian buildings in Scotland. It stands on the Castle Rock at the heart of the city and its spire soars over the skyline. But the fabric needs care and the steps at the entrance need major work to make the Cathedral accessible to all. The vision of the Friends is to help to keep the building in good repair, promote its development as a hub for music and cultural life in Dundee, and improve access so that the Cathedral is fully open to all.

Launched in November 2021, the Friends aim to hold a variety of events through the year, including the annual Cathedral Thinking talk. Membership is open to everyone.
