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. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made welcome.

'Say yes if you mean yes.' (Mathew 5:37)

Sometimes it's hard to have a positive attitude to life and to ourselves. Inner conflicts can often cripple us emotionally and make it hard to function as whole human beings. If we build a strong relationship with God we can often find that brings inner reconciliation and peace. God has given us his 'Yes' in the person of Jesus Christ. As we learn to accept the fact that we are accepted, we can grow in love and trust of God and one another, and learn to say 'yes to life.

Father in heaven, thank you for loving me. Free us by your love to become people of integrity with a positive outlook on life. Help us to say 'yes' to you and to the opportunities you have given us. Amen.
