St Andrew's Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney in the Anglican Church of Australia. The cathedral is the seat of the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney and Metropolitan of New South Wales, the Most Reverend Glenn Davies, elected August 2013. The dean, appointed in May 2015, is the Very Revd Kanishka Raffel.
Located in central Sydney, the cathedral is one of the city's finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture. Designed by Edmund Blacket, it was ready for services and consecrated in 1868, making it the oldest cathedral in Australia. Joan Kerr described St Andrew's as "a perfect example of the colonial desire to reproduce England in Australia in the mid nineteenth century."The cathedral holds services every day, including choral services on Sundays and several times a week during school term. There is also a healing service, Bible studies and prayer meetings. St Andrew's has a cathedral choir of men and boys, as well as a company of bell ringers. The notable pipe organ has been restored and is regularly used for recitals and concerts.
St Andrew's Cathedral is listed on various federal, state, and local government heritage registers.
