Online Worship at St Bride’s Church

Covid-19 has changed our ministry at St Bride’s in unexpected ways. Our worship has moved online with services collated from our music archive and new, spoken content written and recorded by the Rector inside St Bride’s and congregation members from their homes.

We have been touched and delighted by your feedback that this has been a source of comfort, community and support. Our reach and ministry has extended further than ever with listeners across the globe.

The choral services at 11am & 5:30pm each Sunday are streamed as live on Facebook (visit now to set an upcoming live video reminder). They are also available to listen to at any time on our website and on SoundCloud, and you can now subscribe to the “St Bride’s Church” podcast.


The changing face of religion….

St Bride’s has featured in a news package for Canadian TV channel, Global News, by journalist Redmond Shannon on the effect of Covid-19 on worship among the world’s religions. Our Rector speaks of how the Christian community of St Bride’s has responded and tells how she has found strength from an inspirational C17th predecessor, Richard Pierson.

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.

The Rector of St Bride’s Church is Liveryman Reverend Canon Dr Alison Joyce.
