st_brides_baptism.jpg

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)

Be on your guard against avarice of any kind." (Luke 12: 15)

In today's society it is tempting to fall for "the big lie" that money alone will bring happiness. The story of the rich young man in the gospel reminds us that tunnel vision about material prosperity can bring on spiritual blindness. The Christian view of life embraces both this world and the next, encouraging us to make the most of this life, but not to become enslaved by it. Our perspective is both longer and larger.

Heavenly Father, help us to look beyond the things of this life to the things of eternity, and to embrace the joys of today as a pathway to the glories of heaven. Amen.
