Our doors may be closed, but our Sunday services are available to listen to at home, collated from our archive of live music recordings and newly recorded readings, prayers and sermon for the appointed day.

We hope this proves a comfort in these difficult times and a way to preserve our community of faith and fellowship.

Services are streamed as live on Facebook at 11am & 5:30pm each Sunday. They are released concurrently to be listened to at any time on this website in Listen Online, on SoundCloud & as the "St Bride's Church" podcast.

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)

'Don't put new wine into old wineskins.' (Matthew 9: 17)

Jesus had been challenged about not keeping to the rules. He points to the tension that exists between old, inherited, religious structures, and the radical new direction of God's Kingdom. Religious rituals have their place, but Jesus teaches us not to be trapped by our old ways. Sometimes we have to be willing to do new things for the sake of the Gospel so that God can work in the hearts and lives of a younger generation who find the inherited ways and structures no longer speak to them.

Lord, open our eyes to see the world as it could be, till the yearnings of your people are taken seriously, the vision of the young are valued, and your Kingdom is celebrated everywhere. Amen.
