This beautiful church, built by Inigo Jones, in the busy West End of London has been here since 1633.


St Paul's is the Parish Church of Covent Garden and therefore, as well as worshipping on Sunday, also provides various pastoral services such as Baptisms, Confirmations, Weddings, Funerals and Memorial Services.


We are proud to have an attractive churchyard where people can rest and find some peace and quiet in what can be a stressful and busy part of the city.


We run up to 400 unique events each year - from classic concerts, to musical theatre showcases and even a summer long outdoor theatre season.


St Paul’s Church is an ideal to place to hold an event or fundraiser. With our award-winning gardens we can cater to a number of unique events - both inside and outside.
