'Let the little children come to me' (Mark 10:14)

It is a sad fact that children in the 21st Century are still vulnerable to exploitation, violence, abuse and trafficking. In the Gospels, Jesus shows a particular concern for children. He tells us that if we want to be part of his Kingdom we are to become like a little child. Children are trusting and open. They accept life as a gift. We are not only to be like that ourselves but to cherish our children and young people because in them we encounter Christ.

Lord Jesus, you welcomed children who were brought to you. Open our hearts so that we may recognise your kingdom in the simplicity of a child. Amen.

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
