St Bride's: Listen Online

St Bride's Choir

We regularly post live recordings of services from St Bride's featuring our professional musicians but in these challenging times all public services have been cancelled.

Yet the spirit of St Bride's is not easily quenched. We are bringing our acts of worship into your home by creating all our cancelled choral services from our extensive archive of live recordings and newly recorded spoken content.

These will be released each week at the times shown in our calendar to listen to online so that our sense of community can continue despite our physical separation. Check back regularly.

In addition to being available on our website you can find these services on our SoundCloud page. You can subscribe to our podcast on Spotify, TuneIn or search for St Bride's Church on your favourite podcast provider.
