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

'Of course I want to! Be cured!' (Matthew 8:3)

Jesus met a leper who suffered not just from the disease but from society's rejection of him. He was desperate for help and he know Jesus had healed sick people. 'If you want to, you can cure me, were his humble but confident words to Jesus. And Jesus responded wholeheartedly and generously to him. And it was Jesus' willingness to listen and to respond in love that was the most powerful agent for change. Love changes everything, as the song goes.

Lord, give me a sensitive and understanding heart, ready to listen to the needs of those around me. Be with those who have no-one to help them, and give the comfort of your presence to all who call upon you. Amen.

Accident Or Artifice? Designing A Capital From Wren To Abercrombie

Simon takes a broad historical perspective on the planning of London from the Great Fire to the Blitz. He asks what the defining characteristics of London's growth are and how have they contributed to the city we have today. What makes London like the other great European capitals and what sets it apart?
