In line with the easing of restrictions, we are delighted that our weekly services of Choral Eucharist and Choral Evensong have resumed live in church each Sunday at 11am and 5:30pm respectively.

We are continuing to stream services online both for those in our regular congregation who cannot attend in person and for our growing online community across the world.

Services are streamed as live on Facebook and YouTube. 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.


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

'Have pity on me!' (Mark 20:48)

This was the cry of blind Bartimaeus who was persistent in asking Jesus to restore his sight. He kept calling out until his cry was heard and Jesus responded. His example is a reminder that we should all persist in our prayers. We are to ask, to seek and to knock, and to look to the future in faith. Sometimes persistence is hard to sustain and we begin to doubt both ourselves and God. But like Bartimaeus we are to keep going and keep up our conversation with God.

Lord Jesus, when we feel we have been asking and knocking for a long time to no avail, help us not to give up and give us the assurance of your everlasting arms underneath us. Amen.
