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)

'Let them both grow until the harvest.' (Matthew 13: 30)

The parable of the wheat and the weeds is only found in Matthew's Gospel. The word for weeds in Greek is zizania, a plant that looks just like wheat as it is growing. Only when it matures can you tell the difference. In the world the good and the bad grow together: we can't always tell who belongs in which category. We may like the idea of a world in which the good are always kept pure, but that's not how life really is. We don't always know where the good lies: only God does. We have to live with the messiness and leave it to Him.

Lord God, you are patient with what you have created, and give us the chance to grow and flourish in our lives. Help us to be wheat not weeds and to bring forth the fruits of your Spirit. Amen.
