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 today. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made very welcome.Alison Joyce

Since Easter, St Bride's has contained more scaffolding than we would have believed possible as part of a major maintenance project to restore the interior of the church.

The wonderful news is that the work is almost complete and the transformation is astounding!  Hirst Conservation have done a magnificent job in restoring the interior to its dazzling former glory on schedule. Our renewed thanks to all who contributed so generously to the cost of the renovation.

The church is fully open for business; Space for Silence occurs weekdays at 5pm and Tours and Recitals resume in August.

Join us for a special celebratory 'Bright and Beautiful' service on Sunday 25th September at 11:00am. Further Information →

'God is Lord not of the dead but of the living.' (Luke 20:38)

Jesus is getting tied up in an academic argument with religious scholars about the after-life. He breaks through the dry point scoring with the statement that all people are heirs of God and present earthly relationships simply don't apply. A personal and universal intimacy with God will characterise our life after death, but we are meant to enjoy that intimacy here and now, not just in the future.

Lord, help us to hold onto the hope of everlasting life with you, even at times of grief and mourning. Help us too, to enjoy that fullness of life today and all the days of our life. Amen.

Interested in Confirmation?

The next Confirmation Service will be held at St Paul's Cathedral at 5:00 pm on Saturday 5th November 2016.

We already have a group of adults and children who have expressed an interest in being confirmed so if you, or anyone you know might be interested in Confirmation, or just in finding out more, please encourage them to get in touch with Alison.

Confirmation preparation sessions will begin in September (and, as always, will be open to any who feel in need of a 'refresher course' as well as those who are seeking Confirmation).
