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)

'Jesus began to denounce the cities.' (Matthew 11: 20)

For the first time in Matthew's Gospel, Jesus expresses frustration and disappointment. People were refusing to respond to his message. We can probably think ourselves of occasions when our hard and dedicated work went unacknowledged and unrewarded. Then we learn the hard way that our only reward is likely to be the personal satisfaction of a job well done. Jesus remained true to his calling and purpose in the face of indifference and hostility, and his example can inspire us when we are faced with the same.

Lord, may we find satisfaction in our daily work, and when it becomes unrewarding, draw strength from your example of dedication. Amen.
