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

'Our Gospel is veiled...' (2 Corinthians 4:3)

Paul explained the fact that many of his fellow countrymen and women did not believe in Christ with the picture of a veil. It is as though a veil covered their eyes. Christians and non-Christians don't disagree about the facts of the world, the raw data. We do disagree about how we see them and interpret them. We can look at a beautiful view and see just fields and tress, or we can see the grandeur of God. If we have caught a glimpse of the beauty and splendour of God we have a duty to reflect that in our lives.

Lord, we thank you for your beauty and splendour. Help us to reveal that in the way we live our lives, to the glory of your name. Amen.
