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

'Pearls before swine.' (Matthew 7:6)

For the Jewish Society of Jesus' day, pigs had no redeeming features. They were unclean. Holy things, says Jesus, are worthy of respect by those who give and receive them. Pearls are precious and not to be trampled into the mud. When people treat our beliefs with contempt, we are to be gracious and dignified, but also to stand up for what we believe.

Lord, when our faith is mocked, we ask you to strengthen us so that your word will not be ignored or ridiculed. Amen.

Wash the Face of an Angel

St Bride's needs at least £200,000 to restore and maintain its beautiful interior.

The Wash the Face of an Angel campaign is part of our Community Appeal which aims to let you become personally involved in helping safeguard the church's future by sponsporing the cleaning and restoration of items within the church.

A Space For Silence

St Bride's church provides a space for silence every weekday evening between 5 and 6pm; a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Fleet Street and the City of London.

You are welcome to join us and come and go as you please.

Commune with your own heart ... and be still (Psalm 4:4)
