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

A Space For Silence

St Bride's church provides a space for silence every weekday evening between 5 and 6pm; a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Fleet Street and the City of London.

You are welcome to join us and come and go as you please.

Commune with your own heart ... and be still (Psalm 4:4)

'Your sorrow will turn to joy' (John 16:20)

The prophet Isaiah speaks about God giving us 'beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.' We know that human life mingles joys and sorrows, often unexpectedly. Sometimes the pain of sorrow and disappointment makes us despair. Perhaps these words of Jesus can offer a ray of hope at such times, and give us strength to work through our sorrows, helping us to trust that light can shine even in the darkest places.

Lord God, help us to try to use the pain and difficulty of our lives as opportunities for growth and joy, so that we may share our hope with others and bring comfort and consolation. Amen.
