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

Lent, Holy Week & Easter at St Bride's

The season of Lent offers a wonderful opportunity for self-discovery. It is a time when we can strive to live more simply and less self-indulgently; it also invites us to reflect on the things that matter in life - including the ways in which we are attentive to the needs of our world.

Holy Week is not merely another story to be told; rather, a reality to be inhabited. Join us here at St Bride's for our Holy Week services, to share in this remarkable series of events. Further Information

Alongside our regular Sunday services, we've some suggestions about how you might like to mark Lent this year. Read On...

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.

'You are pruned already, because of the words I have spoken' (John 15:3)

Pruning is an important part of tending a garden. It encourages healthier growth and better fruiting. But it can be difficult to cut back what seems perfectly healthy branches. Jesus uses this image of himself and his teaching. They act like secateurs to prepare us to bear more fruit. He is encouraging us to take spiritual growth seriously. This homely image helps us to accept that sometimes we have to take tough decisions about ourselves in order to yield an abundant harvest.

Lord, it is sometimes difficult to cut out the dead wood of bad habits. Open my heart to accept the new growth you inspire in me. Amen.

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)
