Celebrate the Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's!

Christmas at St Bride's is not only the busiest time of the year for us, but also one of the most significant seasons of the Christian calendar. During our many services we have in store, as always, a feast of exquisite and uplifting choral music; the opportunity to sing our favourite Christmas carols; and the chance to discover anew the power of that most famous story: the tale of a child born in a stable, two thousand years ago, marking the dawn of new light and new hope in our troubled world.

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

"You cannot be the servant of both God and money." (Luke 16:13)

The recent banking crisis showed us that money has become something of an obsession in our society. But Jesus reminds us that the pursuit of profit and the accumulation of wealth fall at the bottom of the values of God's Kingdoms. Mercy and compassion are the yardsticks for Christ's followers. True wealth is when our hands and hearts are open to give, and when we commit ourselves to a God-centred life of kindness and sensitivity to others.

Lord, Help us to appreciate the good things you have given us, and to place you at the centre of our lifes. Amen.
