Welcome to St Bride's

During the interregnum we are pleased to welcome Bill Wilson.

Since then he has covered other interregnums at St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe and St Michael's Cornhill. Amongst his interests, Bill lists 19th century church architecture, campanology and 'church-crawling'.

"The Lord was mindful of her." (1 Samuel 1:19)

Hannah and El Kanah had come to the Temple to pray for the blessing of a child, as they had done for years. In due time Samuel is born. When life treats us badly or our dearest hopes go unfulfilled, we are tempted to feel deserted by God. But God is always mindful of us, and Hannah's story reminds us not to lose heart in God.

Lord God, like Hanah may we never cease to trust you, even in dark times. Be close to us always. Amen.
