Located on Melbourne’s busiest intersection, St Paul’s is a living, worshipping community seeking to meet the challenges of the new century through practical welfare, spiritual nurture, and by offering a place of peace in a busy metropolis.
The cathedral was designed by English architect William Butterfield, with the foundation stone laid in 1880. The project did not go smoothly and after Butterfield resigned it was completed by Joseph Reed and consecrated in January 1891. The spires were not finished until 1933, and to the design of competition-winner John Barr.
Worship at St Paul’s combines the best tradition with room for innovations such as our poetry service and jazz mass. Evensong is sung by our internationally-renowned choir each weeknight and Sundays and our famous T C Lewis Organ is central to our worship. The cathedral has one of the few peals of 13 bells outside the UK, and practice sessions are a feature of Wednesday evenings in Melbourne. As well as our regular services, St Paul’s is home to many Anglican diocesan and civic services and events.
St Paul’s is open for visitors and private prayer every day. The Lazarus Centre, a collaborative venture of St Paul’s Cathedral and several other Anglican caring agencies, is located in Chapter House Lane, and provides needy people with food parcels, counseling and referrals.
