Advent & Christmas at St Bride's

Since I took over as Rector at the start of November, everyone has told me what an amazing and magical experience it is to celebrate Christmas at St Bride's.

There is something for everyone during December, with our many carol services and seasonal concerts. So do please come along - we shall be delighted to welcome you, whether you come alone or with family and friends.

Join us to celebrate this wonderful season, to sing glorious carols, and to share the magic of the Christmas story. Full List of Carol Services...

Our New Rector!

On Monday 3rd November the Reverend Canon Dr Alison Joyce was installed as Rector of St Bride's Church at a Service of Institution and Induction by the Bishop of London

"Alison brings intellect, energy, a strong commitment to pastoral care and a profound spirituality to St Bride's and will continue the long tradition of outstanding Rectors", said The Very Revd John Hall, Dean of Westminster and Patron of St Bride's.

December 21

"Will he not go in search of the stray?" (Matthew 18: 12)

Sometimes each of us feels lost, adrift and unable to find a secure mooring for our lives. We sometimes turn our backs on God, and yet Christmas reminds us that Christ comes into the world as a sign of the untiring, searching love of God. So as Christmas approaches why not reflect on where you are in relation to God and pray for the joy of being found again by Him.

Lord, help us to experience something of the joy you feel when you find us, that we may remain close to you. Amen.

The Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's

For just over two years St Bride's has been recording the many events and services held throughout the year; some of these services have been made available to Listen Online.

These recordings have generated a wonderful archive and we are now sharing the best moments.

The Spirit of Christmas is the first CD issued under our new St Bride’s Live label.
