Advent & Christmas at St Bride's

Since I took over as Rector at the start of November, everyone has told me what an amazing and magical experience it is to celebrate Christmas at St Bride's.

There is something for everyone during December, with our many carol services and seasonal concerts. So do please come along - we shall be delighted to welcome you, whether you come alone or with family and friends.

Join us to celebrate this wonderful season, to sing glorious carols, and to share the magic of the Christmas story. Full List of Carol Services...

Our New Rector!

On Monday 3rd November the Reverend Canon Dr Alison Joyce was installed as Rector of St Bride's Church at a Service of Institution and Induction by the Bishop of London

"Alison brings intellect, energy, a strong commitment to pastoral care and a profound spirituality to St Bride's and will continue the long tradition of outstanding Rectors", said The Very Revd John Hall, Dean of Westminster and Patron of St Bride's.

December 17

"Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled". (Luke 14: 11).

We are called to challenge the pecking order at the global table, where millions go hungry while the western world has more than enough. We are called to open our social circle to include the marginalized and excluded members of our community. Why? Because Jesus showed his disapproval of exclusion, snobbery and exploitation. He valued humility and generosity.

Lord, open our hearts, our loves and our homes to those who are at present excluded so that your kingdom will come and your will be done on earth. Amen.

The Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's

For just over two years St Bride's has been recording the many events and services held throughout the year; some of these services have been made available to Listen Online.

These recordings have generated a wonderful archive and we are now sharing the best moments.

The Spirit of Christmas is the first CD issued under our new St Bride’s Live label.
