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

'Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.' (Matthew 6:21)

We all take pleasure in physical things, objects which we value because of their associations or their inherent worth.  But possessions are ultimately transitory: we can end up being possessed by them So where does our real and lasting treasure lie? Surely in relationships which bring deep satisfaction, and ultimately our relationship with God. We need to cultivate our spiritual lives so that we can enjoy the things of this world while seeing them in their proper perspective in the context of eternity.

Lord, help us to find joy in our human relationships and the good things of this life, but always to build up our relationship with you that we may find true and lasting joy in your presence. Amen.
