Who we are?
For anyone new to church services, these are celebrations where we gather together to express our Christian faith through music, prayer, Bible readings, reflections, and fellowship with those around us. At St Bride's our liturgy (form of worship) is full of rich language, music (choral and instrumental) and carefully choreographed movement at the altar , all accompanied by incense and bells. We are proud of our Anglo-Catholic tradition. Our worship is inclusive. It doesn't matter whether you stand up or sit down at the same time as everyone else, or if you don't feel comfortable making the sign of the cross. Just come and sit and watch and listen, sing and pray with us, and let the awareness of God's presence and love embrace you. The service booklet we use includes notes about what we do in our services and why.
And do please stay for refreshments after the service and enjoy the chat and the chance to meet us all.
Our hope is that everyone will leave our worship feeling renewed, and more able to celebrate life's joys and face life's challenges with a greater awareness of God in our lives and in the people with whom we spend time. After any of our services, please introduce yourself to one of the Clergy, who will gladly arrange a time to meet and explore aspects of life at St Bride's with you.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
