Thank you for your review. We also have a wonderful musical tradition with regular lunchtime recitals and a professional choir which sings at our two Sunday choral services at 11am & 5:30pm. If you fancy a dose of cathedral-quality singing we'd look forward to welcoming...More

Fleet street was once the home of all of the London papers. The many pubs and restaurants were kept in business by the many journalists who worked on the street. This church, tucked away down a lane off Fleet street, was their place of worship...More

Thanks for your review. You're quite right, Fleet Street used to be the production home for London's papers but though the printing presses have long moved away our connections with the news industry remain strong. Journalists & printers still regularly return for services and our...More

Fleet Street was full of people rushing about in the heat, but 12 steps away was this lovely church. Peaceful and cool. But even more impressive was the crypt, only discovered after a wartime bomb hit the church. Down in the crypt were remains of...More

All right, I'll admit it. I attended Sunday worship here in October 2017, but I desired principally to hear the music. I wasn't disappointed, as the professional choir was superlative. It was a beautiful Eucharist service. Having given that well-deserved praise, I shall make a...More
