St Bride's, Fleet Street is a warm and welcoming Christian community, and one of the most famous and most fascinating historic churches in Central London. 

St Bride's is known worldwide as the Journalists' Church, offering a spiritual home to all who work in the media. However, our ministry extends to everyone who lives and works within our parish, and to the thousands of visitors who come to us every year. Our beautiful Wren church provides a place of peace and a spiritual haven in the heart of the city for all who come. With one of the best professional choirs in the country, we are also well known for the outstanding quality of our music and of the worship we offer.

A place of Christian worship for 1500 years, we continue to proclaim the love of God here today. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made very welcome.Alison Joyce

'You have learnt from God to love one another.' (Thessalonians 4: 9)

There is a special word for love which the New Testament writers use - agape. It describes the love God has for us and which we should reflect in our own lives: a self-giving love which doesn't seek to possess but to benefit the beloved. We are not only to love God but to love each other, and if you want a picture of that kind of love, read the thirteenth chapter of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Love is the greatest gift that God offers to us.

Lord, you have taught us that faith, hope and love abide, but the greatest of these is love. May we show this agape love to the world around us. Amen.

Holy Week & Easter 2017

St Bride's was delighted to welcome so many visitors and congregants during Holy Week and the Easter festival. Use our Listen Online service to catch up on a compilation of musical highlights from that period as we journey through services on Maundy Thursday, and the devotional hours of Good Friday, to the proclamation of Easter in the light of a new dawn on Easter Day.

St Bride's offers a varied and full programme of music throughout the year at our Sunday services performed by our professional church choir as well as hosting regular lunchtime recitals.
