Welcome to St Bride's

St Bride's Church is a magical space in which the beauty of its architecture, the power of the liturgy and the weight of history all meet and enrich each other. Designed by Wren and completed in 1703, its 226 foot, wedding cake spire dominates the surrounding area. When sunlight shines in through the large windows the interior gains a special luminous quality as an oasis of peace and prayer amidst the busy City.

'I have come into the world' (John 16:28)

When I listen to some atheists or read what they have to say about Christianity I often feel frustrated that they are criticising belief in a God that most Christians don't believe in. They imagine an old man sitting on a cloud, outside the world, who intervenes at will. Yet the God we believe in is dynamic, immanent in the world, present in all aspects of its life, 'the ground of our being' as Paul Tillich called God. God is very close to us, not far away, which is why at Jesus' Ascension the angel asks the disciples 'Why are you looking up into the sky?

Lord God, alive and at large in the world, help me to find you in the experiences and people of my daily life and to feel your presence in the world around me. Amen.
