annual_journalists_service_2017.jpg Annual Journalists Service

A striking feature of the Church's calendar at this time of the year is the cluster of services that we hold in November, all of which have the theme of Remembering at their heart.

These are our All Saints' Day choral eucharist and Commemoration of the Faithful Departed at our All Souls tide evensong on 5th November; Remembrance Sunday on 12th November; and our annual Journalists' Commemorative Service on 21st November. Our remembrance tide offering is complemented this year by a free exhibition in the crypt by artist Ted Harrison entitled "The Sins of the World" which runs throughout this period.

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.
