All services at St Bride's are suspended during the current national lockdown. However, our doors remain open for private prayer.

Weekly services of Choral Eucharist and Choral Evensong will continue to be streamed as live each Sunday at 11am and 5:30pm respectively. We hope this online provision proves a comfort in these difficult times and a way to preserve our community of faith and fellowship.

Services are streamed as live on Facebook and YouTube. They are released concurrently to be listened to at any time on this website in Listen Online, on SoundCloud & as the "St Bride's Church" podcast.


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

'Angels of God, ascending and descending.' (John 1:51)

Angels are popular today, thanks to a renewed interest in spirituality. They have always been respected in the Christian tradition, reflecting the glory of the divine. Angelic messengers are mentioned throughout scripture from Genesis to Revelation and they form part of that great community which gives glory to God. We can ask for the angels assistance today, helping us to be messengers of God in the world.

Lord, give us grace that we, like the angels, may be your messengers, revealing your love and mercy. Amen.
