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)

'It is not those who are well who need a doctor, but the sick' (Luke 5:31)

The Pharisees complained that Jesus spent too much time with the sinners, and not enough with the respectable. Jesus said he had come for those who were aware of their need. God looks beyond external appearances and sees the real person. We need to focus on the inner loveliness of those around us and help to bring it out.

Lord, I am often distracted by outward appearances and miss hidden beauty. Open my eyes and my heart and help me to see people as you see them. Amen.
