Celebrate the Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's!

Christmas at St Bride's is not only the busiest time of the year for us, but also one of the most significant seasons of the Christian calendar. During our many services we have in store, as always, a feast of exquisite and uplifting choral music; the opportunity to sing our favourite Christmas carols; and the chance to discover anew the power of that most famous story: the tale of a child born in a stable, two thousand years ago, marking the dawn of new light and new 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. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made welcome.
Alison Joyce, Rector of St Bride's

"Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled". (Luke 14: 11).

We are called to challenge the pecking order at the global table, where millions go hungry while the western world has more than enough. We are called to open our social circle to include the marginalized and excluded members of our community. Why? Because Jesus showed his disapproval of exclusion, snobbery and exploitation. He valued humility and generosity.

Lord, open our hearts, our loves and our homes to those who are at present excluded so that your kingdom will come and your will be done on earth. Amen.
