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

Lent, Holy Week & Easter at St Bride's

The season of Lent offers a wonderful opportunity for self-discovery. It is a time when we can strive to live more simply and less self-indulgently; it also invites us to reflect on the things that matter in life - including the ways in which we are attentive to the needs of our world.

Holy Week is not merely another story to be told; rather, a reality to be inhabited. Join us here at St Bride's for our Holy Week services, to share in this remarkable series of events. Further Information

Alongside our regular Sunday services, we've some suggestions about how you might like to mark Lent this year. Read On...

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.

'You are to conceive and bear a son' Luke 1:31


We all know the story of the angel visiting Mary to tell her that she was to bear a son called Jesus. What we don't know is how she coped with that amazing and frightening news. All we are told is that she said 'yes' to God. Saying 'yes' to God isn't always easy: there are often consequences for the individual and others. What is God asking of me today and for the future, and am I prepared to take a risk in saying 'yes' to God as Mary did?

Risen Lord, help me to say 'yes' to you, even if there are difficult consequences. Give me the courage to follow wherever you may lead. Amen.

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)
