St Lawrence is a beautiful example of the work of Sir Christopher Wren. It dates from the 11th Century, and was rebuilt to a Wren design in 1667. Having been seriously damaged in the second world war blitz it was again rebuilt to Wren's design and now stands proudly as the civic Church of the City of London Corporation and the Lord Mayor of London.

There are regular services and concerts in the church and details are on the events page. We seek to give a welcome to all who seek a place of quiet and reflection in the busy life of our City.

The main service of the week takes place on a Friday lunch time at 1.15pm. There is a piano concert in the church every Monday at 1pm and an organ concert every Tuesday at 1pm.

The church doors are open to all who would come in, but we would love to tell you more about the Christian faith. Contact us for more information as to how to explore faith in the city.
