St Bride's: News

Covid-19 Update

Updated: 3rd July 2020

We are pleased to announce that, in accordance with government advice, St Bride's is now able to welcome tourists and visitors from 5th July, having opened its doors for private prayer on 15th June after three months of enforced closure.

Choral worship continues online; however, together with other events, choral services in church remain suspended for the time being. From 12th July there will be an additional public said Eucharist each Sunday morning at 10am in church.

Opening Times
Monday to Friday: 9am - 4:30pm
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
Join the live streams of our services or catch up later: our Sunday services are streamed 'as live' on Facebook at 11am and 5.30pm each Sunday and are released concurrently to be listened to at any time in Listen Online, on SoundCloud and as the 'St Bride's Church' podcast.

Although we have had to suspend our popular lunchtime recital series, we are delighted to be able to present a weekly online recital comprising audio tracks from recitalists unable to perform live at St Bride's. They are streamed on Facebook at 1.15pm every Tuesday and can be heard 'as live' or at any time. 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.
