St Bride’s association with printing began in 1500 when Caxton’s apprentice, Wynkyn de Worde, relocated his printing press here, and it grew as the emerging profession of journalism established its national base within our parish. The news industry may have moved from the Fleet Street of today, but St Bride’s remains the spiritual home of all in the news and media industries. The attacks on press freedom and on individuals striving to bring us the truth is greater than ever and our ministry to journalism never more important.
