Lent, Holy Week & Easter at St Bride's

Lent is the season of preparation for the life-changing events of Holy Week and Easter.  It is a time when we are invited to reflect on who and what we are, to set time aside to re-evaluate our priorities and our life's journey, and to remember our need of God's love and grace.

Holy Week is not merely another story to be told; rather, it is a reality to be inhabited. It is extraordinary; it is powerful; it is life-transforming.

Join us here at St Bride's for our Holy Week services, to share in this remarkable series of events. Further Information...

April 18

'You are pruned already, because of the words I have spoken' (John 15:3)

Pruning is an important part of tending a garden. It encourages healthier growth and better fruiting. But it can be difficult to cut back what seems perfectly healthy branches. Jesus uses this image of himself and his teaching. They act like secateurs to prepare us to bear more fruit. He is encouraging us to take spiritual growth seriously. This homely image helps us to accept that sometimes we have to take tough decisions about ourselves in order to yield an abundant harvest.

Lord, it is sometimes difficult to cut out the dead wood of bad habits. Open my heart to accept the new growth you inspire in me. Amen.

Our New Rector!

On Monday 3rd November the Reverend Canon Dr Alison Joyce was installed as Rector of St Bride's Church at a Service of Institution and Induction by the Bishop of London.

"Alison brings intellect, energy, a strong commitment to pastoral care and a profound spirituality to St Bride's and will continue the long tradition of outstanding Rectors", said The Very Rev'd John Hall, Dean of Westminster and Patron of St Bride's.
