St Bride's, Fleet Street is a warm and welcoming Christian community, and one of the most famous and most fascinating historic churches in Central London. 

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. Our beautiful Wren church provides a place of peace and a spiritual haven in the heart of the city for all who come. 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.

A place of Christian worship for 1500 years, we continue to proclaim the love of God here today. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made very welcome.Alison Joyce

'Beware of the scribes, who like to be greeted in the public square.' (Mark 12:38)

Mother Theresa dedicated her life to helping the poorest of the poor. Because of it she became a magnet for celebrities. A meeting with her was a status symbol. The Scribes in today's reading were the high profile A-listers of their time, always seen in the right places. Jesus' priorities lie elsewhere. You don't have to be famous for this story to speak to you. All communities organise themselves into a pecking order, and you are somewhere in it. Jesus reminds you that your status in the word's eyes doesn't express your worth as a human being.

Lord, help us to remember that human status is nothing in your eyes, and that all of us are your beloved children. Amen.
