St Bride's Church, Fleet Street: spiritual home of the media

A new anthem has been commissioned for St Bride's Choir, in recognition of their environmental Lent campaigns.

Composer Ian Stephens has set Malcolm Guite's poem "Everything Holds Together" in a number of free to download arrangements for choirs of all ranges and sizes.

The anthem is a song of praise for God's Creation and a timely reminder of our duty of stewardship towards our fragile & precious environment.

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.

'Simplicity of heart.' (Wisdom 1:1)

The Book of Wisdom encourages us to keep our inner lives simple. Jesus encourages us to recapture a straightforwardness in our relationships with others. But it's hard to keep everything simple. We are complex beings in a complex world. But if I try to live in obedience to God's word and to show love in my dealings with others, then I shall be laying a simple foundation of living faith for my life.

Lord, so often the complexities of life come like a cloud between us. Forgive us the things that clutter our lives and help us to recover a simple trust in you. Amen.
