Our doors may be closed, but our Sunday services are available to listen to at home, collated from our archive of live music recordings and newly recorded readings, prayers and sermon for the appointed day.

We hope this proves a comfort in these difficult times and a way to preserve our community of faith and fellowship.

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.

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)

June 5

'Anyone who loses his own life for my sake will find it.' (Matthew 10: 39)

Bookshops stock many books on self-help, promising that they will help you sort out your life and achieve more. Jesus tells us something counter-intuitive: that if we lose our lives we will discover true fulfilment. One of the problems of self-help books is that they encourage the promotion of self before all else. Jesus says that when we put others first, we discover our true selves and our true worth. So what have I got to let go of in order to give more of myself to God and so discover who I truly am?

Grant us, Lord, the confidence to know your will, to understand it, and to live it out in our lives with conviction and courage. Amen.
