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

'God is Lord not of the dead but of the living.' (Luke 20:38)

Jesus is getting tied up in an academic argument with religious scholars about the after-life. He breaks through the dry point scoring with the statement that all people are heirs of God and present earthly relationships simply don't apply. A personal and universal intimacy with God will characterise our life after death, but we are meant to enjoy that intimacy here and now, not just in the future.

Lord, help us to hold onto the hope of everlasting life with you, even at times of grief and mourning. Help us too, to enjoy that fullness of life today and all the days of our life. Amen.

A new anthem has been commissioned for St Bride's Choir, in recognition of their environmental Lent campaigns.

Composer Ian Stephens has set Malcolm Guite's poem "Everything Holds Together" in a number of free to download arrangements for choirs of all ranges and sizes.

The anthem is a song of praise for God's Creation and a timely reminder of our duty of stewardship towards our fragile & precious environment.
