Welcome to St Bride's

St Bride's Church is a magical space in which the beauty of its architecture, the power of the liturgy and the weight of history all meet and enrich each other. Designed by Wren and completed in 1703, its 226 foot, wedding cake spire dominates the surrounding area. When sunlight shines in through the large windows the interior gains a special luminous quality as an oasis of peace and prayer amidst the busy City.

'You may find peace in me' (John 16:33)

Loneliness is a universal experience, even in our crowded society. Partly this is because we are born alone, and alone we die. Nobody can fully know us because each of us is unique. Jesus too faced this reality, and the fact that even his closest friends would desert him in his hour of need. He was sustained by his deep knowledge of his Father's love and presence. He offers that assurance and peace to us too.

Lord, we pray for those feeling lost and alone, especially those who have lost someone dear to them. May they and we find strength and comfort within your compassionate love. Amen.
