St Bride's is the Church of England's Parish Church for the University and Canning areas of Liverpool. We are a small (and growing!) church with a big (and growing!) vision.

We are a creative church. A place where people, the visual arts, music and faith mix together. We are a progressive church. A place where the Christian story is lived and explored in a way that respects questions as much as answers, with an openness to the insights of science and the ways of other faiths. We are an inclusive church. A place where everyone can feel respected and at home, regardless of sexuality, gender, race, disability, class or creed.

St Bride's Sunday morning service is at 10.00am each week. Our services are drawn from the liturgy of the Iona Community and other sources which resonate with our vision of a creative, progressive and inclusive church. Each Sunday's service is based around a topical theme and includes discussion.

The Well Celtic Worship
On the second Sunday of each month, "The Well" our Celtic Worship Community meets at 6.30pm (refreshments and welcome from 6.00pm). A chance to explore the riches of the Celtic tradition and an approach to spirituality which finds God alive as much in the natural world as in the words of scripture. Simple liturgies, times of silence, poetry and art all play their part in the mix. Contact Ruth for more information or join The Well Facebook Group for regular updates and information.
