Our doors are now open for private prayer and general visiting. There is a weekly Choral Eucharist on Sundays at 11am which is also available online to listen to at home together with a virtual Choral Evensong at 5:30pm.

We hope this online provision proves a comfort in these difficult times and a way to preserve our community of faith and fellowship when attending church may be difficult.

Services are streamed as live on Facebook at 11am & 5:30pm each Sunday. 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

'Anyone who exalts himself will be humbled.' (Matthew 23:12)

Jesus has sharp words for those who are overly concerned with status and appearance. It is a problem that can affect us all. We are all probably too concerned with status, so Jesus reminds us that we are all of equal value in God's eyes.

Lord Jesus, grant us a humble heart and eyes that see the value you place in everyone. Quell our pride so that we may recognise you in those we meet. Amen.
