St Bride's Church, Fleet Street: spiritual home of the media

Lent, Holy Week & Easter at St Bride's

The season of Lent offers a wonderful opportunity for self-discovery. It is a time when we can strive to live more simply and less self-indulgently; it also invites us to reflect on the things that matter in life - including the ways in which we are attentive to the needs of our world.

Holy Week is not merely another story to be told; rather, a reality to be inhabited. Join us here at St Bride's for our Holy Week services, to share in this remarkable series of events. Further Information

Alongside our regular Sunday services, we've some suggestions about how you might like to mark Lent this year. Read On...

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

'Remain in my love' (John 15:9)

 Friendship is a valuable and vital human relationship. A friend is someone with whom we can be ourselves. We may sometimes see things differently but there is a bond of acceptance between us. Jesus invited his followers to become his friends - a deeper intimacy and a more equal relationship. That is an extraordinary invitation: we don't have to worry about 'keeping on the right side of God.'

We are invited to spend time with Jesus, share our deepest thoughts and concerns with him, and to trust him with our lives. He sees the best in us, because he is our friend as well as our lord.

Lord, I thank you for the gift of friendship, and I give thanks today for my friends. Open my heart to the friendship that you offer. Amen.

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)
