Lent, Holy Week & Easter at St Bride's

Lent is the season of preparation for the life-changing events of Holy Week and Easter.  It is a time when we are invited to reflect on who and what we are, to set time aside to re-evaluate our priorities and our life's journey, and to remember our need of God's love and grace.

Holy Week is not merely another story to be told; rather, it is a reality to be inhabited. It is extraordinary; it is powerful; it is life-transforming.

Join us here at St Bride's for our Holy Week services, to share in this remarkable series of events. Further Information...

'We have been baptised into Jesus' death' (Romans 6:2)

When someone is baptised they are sprinkled with water to symbolise being covered with water, submerged with Jesus. The baptised person enters into the tomb with Christ and then emerges from death into the new life of Christ. Today we are reminded that in order to live with Christ we must die to everything that separates us from him. We prepare ourselves to celebrate the joy of Easter.

Lord, as we prepare to celebrate Christ's resurrection, help us to die to sin that we might live his risen life. Amen.

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 Rev'd John Hall, Dean of Westminster and Patron of St Bride's.

Wash the Face of an Angel
