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

"Brexit, Trump and the politics of fear: is populism here to stay?"

St Bride's is delighted to welcome NICK CLEGG MP for the Tom Olsen Lecture on Wednesday 29th March at 7pm.

With the backdrop of Brexit, increasing attention is being drawn to the politics of identity, populism and nationalism in the world. Drawing on his personal experiences in politics and government, Nick will explore how liberals and those who believe in the politics of reason and moderation can rise to the new challenges of the 21st century.

"The people raised their hands and answered Amen!" (Nehemiah 8: 6)

If you enjoy visiting old churches you may have been struck by the atmosphere of prayer that seems to seep out of the stones of the building. When we are feeling weak and vulnerable it is encouraging to remember the prayers of so many people who have worshipped God down the centuries, and add our 'Amen' to theirs.

Lord, we thank you for the witness of so many people down the centuries. May our prayers blend with theirs, and may we find strength as we remember their faithfulness. Amen.
