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

Celebrate the Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's!

Advent is one of the most profound seasons of our year, as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas. We reflect on the needs of our world, to help us recognise the true significance of the coming of the Prince of Peace.

Our many carol services re-tell in words and music the story of the birth of Jesus which would bring a new age of hope to the world through God's love for us.

We offer a warm welcome to all our visitors, a feast of music from our professional choir, and the best-loved traditional carols to join in and sing.

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
