Advent & Christmas at St Bride's

Celebrate the Magic of Christmas at St Bride's!

Christmas is both the busiest time of the year for us, and one of the most significant seasons of the Christian calendar. During our many services we have a feast of exquisite choral music; the chance to sing our favourite carols; & the opportunity to discover anew the power of that most famous story: the tale of a child born in a stable, 2000 years ago, marking the dawn of new light and hope in our troubled world.

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

December 5

'The Holy Spirit will teach you what you must say.' (Luke 12: 12)

If you were asked in casual conversation why you go to church, what would you say? Would you be able to speak personally and simply about what your faith means to you? Or if you are facing a difficult ethical dilemma at work, and were asked your opinion as a Christian, would you have the confidence to respond? We all need to have a reason for the faith that is in us and to keep close to God so that we may find the right words to say.

Lord, help me to trust you more so that I can speak openly about the things of faith. Please support those who face difficult situations in which they need your wisdom and your words. Amen.
