Welcome to St Bride's

St Bride's Church is a magical space in which the beauty of its architecture, the power of the liturgy and the weight of history all meet and enrich each other. Designed by Wren and completed in 1703, its 226 foot, wedding cake spire dominates the surrounding area. When sunlight shines in through the large windows the interior gains a special luminous quality as an oasis of peace and prayer amidst the busy City.

'Happy that servant if his master's arrival finds him at his employment.'  (Matthew 24: 46)

Duty is not a popular word these days. It speaks of unthinking loyalty and an old fashioned outlook. But Jesus reminds us that there is much to be said for a dutiful faith. Jesus in this parable criticises those who take advantage of their employer and those who are time-servers. Are we people of integrity who can be relied on to do what is expected of us, even when no-one is looking and we may not get thanked or appreciated? In our faith too we are warned not to become complacent.

Lord, forgive us when we fail in our duty and follow our own selfish desires. Strengthen us through the power of your Spirit. Amen.
