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 webcasting 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.

Choral services have now resumed in church following the long period of Covid-19 restrictions. However, we are continuing to release two services online each Sunday at the same time as our church services. These are for those who cannot make it to church in person and feature the same readings, prayers and sermon which would be heard in church, together with wonderful music from our extensive archive of live recordings of St Bride's Choir.

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