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 today. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made very welcome.Alison Joyce

'Of course I want to! Be cured!' (Matthew 8:3)

Jesus met a leper who suffered not just from the disease but from society's rejection of him. He was desperate for help and he know Jesus had healed sick people. 'If you want to, you can cure me, were his humble but confident words to Jesus. And Jesus responded wholeheartedly and generously to him. And it was Jesus' willingness to listen and to respond in love that was the most powerful agent for change. Love changes everything, as the song goes.

Lord, give me a sensitive and understanding heart, ready to listen to the needs of those around me. Be with those who have no-one to help them, and give the comfort of your presence to all who call upon you. Amen.

Holy Week & Easter 2017

St Bride's was delighted to welcome so many visitors and congregants during Holy Week and the Easter festival. Use our Listen Online service to catch up on a compilation of musical highlights from that period as we journey through services on Maundy Thursday, and the devotional hours of Good Friday, to the proclamation of Easter in the light of a new dawn on Easter Day.

St Bride's offers a varied and full programme of music throughout the year at our Sunday services performed by our professional church choir as well as hosting regular lunchtime recitals.
