St Bride's: Listen Online

St Bride's Choir

The Choir of St Bride's, Fleet Street is proud to be the first adult professional choir, and also the first London church choir to offer web-casting of services.

This is very fitting for a church with such strong media links, and I hope it will bring the distinctive and exciting sound of the St Bride's choir to a wider audience.

For those who have not heard us before, the choir is an ensemble of twelve professional soloists, enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of Wren's church and the magnificent Compton organ.

The choir is famed for its versatility, and is equally at home in operatic excerpts and popular arrangements, but the traditional Anglican repertoire is at the heart of what we do.

In the Eye of the Storm – Tuesday 21 November, 2017

A Commemorative Service was held at St Bride's Church on Tuesday 21st November at 6:30pm.

As consumers of news in a fast-changing world, we demand a great deal of our journalists and foreign correspondents.

We expect them to keep us informed about difficult and complex situations in the trouble spots of the world, often at great personal risk, and sometimes, tragically, they pay the ultimate price.

So it is important that, as representatives of the media industry and the public life of this nation, we honour their memory in this service and remind ourselves of the sacrifice they make in order to bring us the truth.

INTRODUCTION

As consumers of news in a fast-changing world, we demand a great deal of our journalists and foreign correspondents.

We expect them to keep us informed about difficult and complex situations in the trouble spots of the world, often at great personal risk, and sometimes, tragically, they pay the ultimate price.

So it is important that, as representatives of the media industry and the public life of this nation, we honour their memory in this service and remind ourselves of the sacrifice they make in order to bring us the truth.

WELCOME & OPENING PRAYER

The Revd Canon Dr Alison Joyce delivered the bidding:-

Welcome to St Bride's for our annual service of commemoration, at which we honour the memory and give thanks for the lives of those journalists, camera-crew and support staff who have died, particularly those who have lost their lives during the course of their professional duties.

This is also an occasion on which we remember and hold in our prayers those
members of the profession who are currently held captive and all whose work
places them in situations of grave risk or personal danger.

In remembering them today we mark their courage, their dedication, and their
commitment. And as we celebrate all that is best in investigative journalism, we
do so mindful of the fact that our news is sometimes brought to us at terrible
cost - a price that is paid by those journalists, and by their families, friends and
colleagues.

Almighty Father,
in whose perfect realm
no sword is drawn but the sword of justice,
and no strength known but the strength of love:
guide and protect all who seek to bear witness
to the truth of your troubled world;
all who seek to give a voice to the voiceless,
and to tell stories that would otherwise remain untold.
We remember especially this day all members of this profession
who have died, or whose fate is unknown
that you may bless their work,
and strengthen and sustain those who love them.
In Jesus' name we pray.

Amen.
