An oasis of peace in the heart of the busy city for a moment of mindfulness and reflection each weekday at 4:00 pm.

Each weekday at the end of the day, from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm, the main body of the church becomes an oasis of peace in the heart of the busy city.

The church is candlelit, and anyone is welcome to call in for a time of quiet and stillness, whether for five minutes or the full hour.

The city can be a frantic and stressful environment for those who work or live in London, or are visiting the capital. We provide a welcome and much needed sanctuary and an opportunity for mindfulness, reflection and prayer.

Space for Silence runs throughout the year, but occasionally events in church mean that we may have to suspend it on a particular day. Please check the What's On calendar on our website to confirm.

Our Sunday morning Choral Eucharist (a sung service of Holy Communion) takes place every week at 11:00 am.

The service uses a modern language version of Common Worship.

A list of music for each service can be found via the calendar in the What's On section of our website https://www.stbrides.com/whats-on/

We welcome children to the service. During term time, our Sunday Club (Sunday School) provides a safe and stimulating environment for our younger members. https://www.stbrides.com/worship-music/worship/children/

Refreshments are served at the back of church after the service and everyone is warmly invited to join in. This opportunity for fellowship and conversation is an important part of the shared life of our diverse and widespread congregation and a wonderful way to meet visitors and make new friends.

At a number of significant occasions throughout the year, we are delighted to welcome the St Bride’s Orchestra to accompany the choir.

A pre-recorded version of this service is live-streamed online at 11:00 am and available to listen to thereafter on our Facebook, YouTube and SoundCloud pages. Subscribe to the St Bride’s Church podcast to stay up to date.
