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

'The two become one body' (Matthew 19: 5)

Jesus had quite a lot to say about marriage, and he was especially critical of the view that women were disposable assets, who could be divorced at will. Marriage is a partnership for life - that is God's ideal. It is a wonderful thing when two people grow into an ever deepening unity of love and mutual trust, but sometimes things go wrong. Mistakes are made and marriages do break down. When that happens we need to acknowledge that a relationship has died, learn the hard lessons, and begin to move on. It is always painful but the Gospel does give us the hope of new life after death, of new beginnings after failure. We need to maintain the high ideal of marriage while being supportive and compassionate with those who can't live up to that ideal.

Lord God, you have blessed marriage and made it a sacrament in which two people become one. Support all who are setting out on this path and be compassionate with those who stumble, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
