Covid-19 Update

Updated: 4th November 2020

In line with government guidelines on Places of Worship, there will be no public services or organised acts of worship from Thursday 5th November; however, St Bride's remains open to all for private prayer.

Services of Choral Eucharist and Choral Evensong will be streamed as live online each Sunday. Recitals in church are suspended but will continue online.

Please note that it is a legal requirement to wear face coverings in places of worship. Further guidance is available from the Church of England.

Opening Times
Monday to Friday: 8am - 5pm
Saturday: 10am - 3:30pm
Sunday: 9:30am - 4pm

Entrance & Exit
Please enter through the Churchyard gates off Fleet Street and follow the signs; exit is via the West Doors. The church, crypts and exhibition are now open to the public; if you wish to visit the crypts and exhibition, please register with a verger upon arrival.

Handwashing & Hygiene
The church was deep-cleaned prior to re-opening and continues to be cleaned regularly and thoroughly. Hand gel is available and clearly indicated but, unfortunately, we are unable to offer any toilet facilities at present.

Social Distancing
A one-way system is in operation inside the church and we have placed signs throughout the building to reinforce the need to maintain distance between people at all times.

Staff
Our vergers are available whenever the church is open.

Online Worship & Recitals
Both Sunday choral services are streamed 'as live' on Facebook and YouTube at 11am and 5.30pm and are released concurrently to be listened to at any time in Listen Online, on SoundCloud and as the 'St Bride's Church' podcast.

A recital is streamed as live on YouTube at 1.15pm every Tuesday and can be listened to at any time after its broadcast. Further Information→

Supporting one another
Many of us are still vulnerable or in isolation and, if you are in need, please contact Claire at stb@stbrides.com or leave a message on 020 7427 0133.

We hope that it will not be too long before we are able to host services and events in St Bride's and that the re-opening for tourists and visitors is a further step in that process.
