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

"A new heaven and a new earth." (Revelation 21: 1)

Revelation pictures a future time when the entire creation will be renewed. Our job, as fellow builders with Christ, is to prepare for that by building a kingdom of justice and peace. There is still much to be done, hatred and prejudice to be overcome, cruelty and suffering to be eradicated, and new hope for the future to be rekindled. We ask God's Spirit to stir us up and to keep us alert.

Lord, Transform our hearts that we may be builders of justice and peace, working to bring healing and wholeness to your world. Amen.
