We hope this proves a comfort in these difficult times and a way to preserve our community of faith and fellowship.

'Why are you so frightened?' (Matthew 8: 26)

Fear can be paralysing, especially when the unexpected happens. We may be facing a sudden financial, work or health crisis, and the more prepared we are, the better we shall be able to face up to the situation. Fishermen are used to bad weather, but Jesus' friends had been caught unawares, and so they turn to him. He tells them, in effect, that a grounding in faith prepares us for the unexpected in life, that basic attitude of trust in God that can help us face what happens with hope and peace in our hearts.

Lord God, stiller of our storms, you are our constant companion and helper. Increase our faith, that we may know you and trust you more each day. Amen.

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.

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.
