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

Since Easter, St Bride's has contained more scaffolding than we would have believed possible as part of a major maintenance project to restore the interior of the church.

The wonderful news is that the work is almost complete and the transformation is astounding!  Hirst Conservation have done a magnificent job in restoring the interior to its dazzling former glory on schedule. Our renewed thanks to all who contributed so generously to the cost of the renovation.

The church is fully open for business; Space for Silence occurs weekdays at 5pm and Tours and Recitals resume in August.

Join us for a special celebratory 'Bright and Beautiful' service on Sunday 25th September at 11:00am. Further Information →

'Lord, how often must I forgive?' (Matthew 18:21)

The philosopher Goethe once wrote: 'No reproaches about what is past and cannot be altered. How can a man live at all if he does not grant absolution every night to himself and his fellows?' When Jesus responds to the question about forgiveness he says it must be unlimited. We hear of people who show heroic forgiveness, but most of us are only called to forgive comparatively trivial things. Perhaps we would do well to follow Goethe's advice and make forgiveness part of our prayers every night.

Lord God, may your forgiveness in our lives bear fruit in our readiness to forgive others. Help us to be merciful as you are merciful. Amen.

Interested in Confirmation?

The next Confirmation Service will be held at St Paul's Cathedral at 5:00 pm on Saturday 5th November 2016.

We already have a group of adults and children who have expressed an interest in being confirmed so if you, or anyone you know might be interested in Confirmation, or just in finding out more, please encourage them to get in touch with Alison.

Confirmation preparation sessions will begin in September (and, as always, will be open to any who feel in need of a 'refresher course' as well as those who are seeking Confirmation).
