Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

  • News!!!

    "Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification." Romans 14:19 NIV

    Do we live towards having inner peace which would lead to having peace around us?


    The abseil challenge event to raise fund for the Lord Mayor's Appeal 2016 is on Friday 14th October 2016.

    The event is up on The Lord Mayor's Appeal website https://www.thelordmayorsappeal.org/events/194/abseil-challenge-st-lawrence-jewry/ and registration is still open. There is only 70 places available to take part in the event, so please register your interest as soon as possible.  Our very own Verger/Administrator, Arnel Sullano, is taking part.  If you're not brave enough to abseil down from our church clock tower, maybe you be brave enough to sponsor him instead.  You can do it online by visiting his JustGiving donation page or you can come to church and fill up the sponsoring form in the office.


    St Lawrence Jewry is now twinned with St Columb's Cathedral of Londonderry Northern Ireland.  


    ePastor is a new initiative from St Lawrence Jewry.  Got a question about life, faith or anything? Uncertain about coming inside the church and asking? Then this is for you! Send you question to epastor and we will reply.


    St Lawrence Jewry is the official church of the Lord Mayor of London and the City of London Corporation and stands in the Yard of the Guildhall.

    It was re-built by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of 1666, but there has been a church on the site for around 900 years.

    After extensive damage in the Second World War, it was again re-built.

    We are here to show the love of Christ to those who live and work in the City of London, and we seek to be welcoming to the many people who pass through our doors.

    The church is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

    Come and visit us soon. You will find a fascinating building to look round, and somewhere to stop, be still, think and  pray; a place of tranquillity in an area of world commerce and business. We have a number of resources to aid you in this.  For more information read about the  Royal Marines Chapel. 


    Our main services of the week are Holy Communion on Wednesday mornings from 8:30 - 9:15am and Friday lunchtimes from 1:15 - 2pm. Everyone is welcome to attend these services, which take place in the Commonwealth Chapel.

    Morning Prayer is also said every day, from 7.30 - 8.00am, in the Royal Marines Chapel.

    The service where the Lord Mayor will be in attendance is Lord Mayor's Election Day Service on Thursday 29th September 2016 at 10:45am.  To know more about the process of electing the Lord Mayor of London, please click this link.
