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

A new anthem has been commissioned for St Bride's Choir in recognition of their environmental Lent campaigns. Malcolm Guite's words have been set to music by Ian Stephens in a number of freely available arrangements for choirs of all ranges and sizes.

All are welcome to attend the premiere of A Song for the Season of Creation on Sunday 26th May at 5:30pm. It is hoped it will be performed in churches throughout the country during Creationtide & at Harvest Festivals.

The anthem is a song of praise for God's Creation and a timely reminder of our duty of stewardship to uphold, enhance and safe-guard the environment in which we live.

'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.

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)
