Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

  • News!!!


    They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.. (Acts 2:3-4 NIV)

    Do we speak the language of love or hatred? of peace or war? of inclusion or discrimination? Is our language being influence by the Holy Spirit or by something else?


    Rev'd Canon David Parrott is now back from his 3-months sabbatical leave, exploring the City of London and Livery links around the world.  He took the opportunity to visit Livery organisations in Australia, New Zealand and North America.  He created a blog so that he could update us on his travels around the globe.   He has also written a reflection of his travel.




    2017 was the 60th Anniversary of the rededication of our church after it was rebuilt in 1957.  As an anniversary project, we are raising fund to replace our wooden doors into glass doors.  This will make our church more welcoming to our visitors and congretation.  We need your support to make this possible.  Please visit the 60th Anniversary Appeal webpage to know how you can support us.

    Please come and join us as we close the 60th Anniversary Celebration with our Annual Church Rededication Service on Tuesday 24th July at 5:30pm. The Bishop of London, The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, will be preaching, with The Rt Hon Lord Mayor of London in attendance.  The service will be followed by a reception.  All are very welcome.  Please RSVP Katrina for catering purposes.


    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.

    We are cordially inviting everyone to our Annual Rededication Service on Tuesday 24th July at 5:30pm.  The Lord Mayor will be in attendance and the Bishop of London will be preaching.
