Celebrate the Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's!

Advent is one of the most profound seasons of our year, as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas. We reflect on the needs of our world, to help us recognise the true significance of the coming of the Prince of Peace.

Our many carol services re-tell in words and music the story of the birth of Jesus which would bring a new age of hope to the world through God's love for us.

We offer a warm welcome to all our visitors, a feast of music from our professional choir, and the best-loved traditional carols to join in and sing.

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)
