In accordance with received advice and the need to keep everyone safe and well, we regret that all services at St Bride's are temporarily suspended. The church is also temporarily closed.

Weekly services of Choral Eucharist and Choral Evensong will continue online each Sunday at 11am and 5:30pm respectively. We hope this online provision proves a comfort in these difficult times and a way to preserve our community of faith and fellowship.

Services are streamed as live on Facebook and YouTube. They are released concurrently to be listened to at any time on this website in Listen Online, on SoundCloud & as the "St Bride's Church" podcast.


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.
Alison Joyce, Rector of St Bride's

"This is how you should pray ..." (Matthew 6: 9)

His followers saw that Jesus prayed, but they didn't know how to do so themselves. So Jesus taught them the prayer we know as the Lord's Prayer. We often find, when we pray, that our minds wander off. We can make our distractions part of our prayers and always use the prayer which Jesus taught us.

Lord, take our distractions and all the things we can't put into words, and make them in a prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
