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. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made welcome.
Alison Joyce, Rector of St Bride's

'Preaching Christ crucified' (1 Corinthians 1: 23)

Why did God let his son die? is a profound and difficult question. The church has had many answers about what is happening on the Cross, but at the heart of all of them is the mystery of God's self-giving love. God himself hung on the cross to bring us back to Him. Paul calls that foolishness in human terms, but a divine mystery that overwhelms and disarms us.

Lord, help us to trust that beyond our logic is the mystery that leads us to your love. Help us to allow the foolishness of the cross to become your power for salvation in my life. Amen.

A Space For Silence

St Bride's church provides a space for silence every weekday evening between 5 and 6pm; a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Fleet Street and the City of London.

You are welcome to join us and come and go as you please.

Commune with your own heart ... and be still (Psalm 4:4)
