St Bride's Church, Fleet Street: spiritual home of the media

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 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)

"The voice I heard from heaven spoke to me." (Revelation 10: 8)

There are many stories in the Bible of God calling people. God uses human beings as channels for his grace and mercy. God calls each of us by name, and has plans for us as Christians in a world that is often ambiguous in its attitudes to the God who created it.

Father, you have called each of us through our baptism. Help us to be conscious of that call and to respond to it. Amen.
