St Bride's Church, Fleet Street: spiritual home of the media

A new anthem has been commissioned for St Bride's Choir, in recognition of their environmental Lent campaigns.

Composer Ian Stephens has set Malcolm Guite's poem "Everything Holds Together" in a number of free to download arrangements for choirs of all ranges and sizes.

The anthem is a song of praise for God's Creation and a timely reminder of our duty of stewardship towards our fragile & precious environment.

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. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made welcome.

'Master, we should like to see a sign from you.' (Matthew 12: 38)

Signs of God's presence are easily missed in our world today. Often we are too busy, too pressured, too anxious, to look up and look around us and see the big picture. Jesus' followers were always looking for dramatic signs and yet failed to see God in Jesus. Are we seeing signs of God in the world today, the footprints of his presence, the hints of his glory that can point towards Him?

Lord Jesus, help us not to be indifferent to the signs of your presence in our lives. Stir our hearts and minds to be aware of you in the experiences and people we encounter every day. Amen.
