Welcome to St Bride's

Since then he has covered other interregnums at St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe and St Michael's Cornhill. Amongst his interests, Bill lists 19th century church architecture, campanology and 'church-crawling'.

'Mercy not sacrifice.' (Matthew 12: 7)

The religious leaders of Jesus' day observed the minutest details of the law, which to them had become an idol. Jesus quoted the prophet Hosea to them, saying that their rituals are empty charades. God desires mercy not sacrifice. It is a reminder that religious observance by itself is an empty shell, without love and care for our fellow human beings.

Lord, teach us to be merciful to others as you are to us, that our faith may be lived out in our daily lives. Amen.
