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

"Shine in the world like bright stars" (Philippians 2: 15)

The nineteenth century poet John Keats wrote a love sonnet which begins "Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art...", and goes on to describe the constancy of the star looking down on the waves and tides, mountains and moors. The poet hopes to be as faithful to his love as the star is to its task. Paul calls his fellow Christians to "shine in the world like bright stars." Like Keats we can all yearn to be steadfast in our faith, like the bright star in the sky.

Lord God, give us faith that is constant and steadfast, offering ourselves in your service and shining in the world like bright stars. Amen.
