Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall



    Congratulations to Alderman Vincent Keaveny for being elected as the 692nd Lord Mayor of London!  Let us include him in our prayers as he prepares to take on this important role during the Silent Ceremony on Friday 12th November at the Great Hall of Guildhall City of London.  Let us also remember Amanda in our prayers as she will also take on the very important role of being the Lady Mayoress to support her husband.

    We would like to thank our current Lord Mayor, Alderman William Russell, for his two-terms of office.  You have done a great deal, moving the City through the pandemic.  God bless you and your family always.


    The Archdeacon of London announced the early retirement of David as the Guild Vicar of St Lawrence Jewry Church.  You'll find more details about it in his announcement letter and in David's video in our YouTube and other social media platforms.  A GoFundMe Page was created to give an opportunity for people who knew David to thank him for his ministry.  His Leaving Service is on Friday 29th October 2021 at 1:15pm, during our Holy Communion Service.  Their will be a reception after the service.  It is not a ticketed event and everyone is invited.  For catering purposes, we would appreciate it if you can let us know by email or phone 02076009478.

    Despite of this, rest assured that the church will continue to function as the City of London church and to its mission in bringing the Light of Christ to the City of London.


    The big roof restoration project is now in progress.  The church will remain open until the event in December 2021.  Our weekly Holy Communion Service is still being held in the Commonwealth Chapel every Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 - 9:00am and 1:15-1:50pm, respectively.  We also switched broadcasting our Holy Communion Service from Wednesday to Friday via Facebook Live.  Until we are finally over the pandemic, wearing of face mask is encouraged to attend this service.  To view latest Holy Communion Service, please click here

    The Monday lunchtime piano recital series is now back at 1pm.  To view who will be playing and their programme, please visit our October 2021 Piano Programme webpage.  We will broadcast the series live via Facebook Live.


    Our church has been hosting The Eric Thompson Charitable Trust Organ Recital every year during the month of October for a number of years now.  We didn't have them in 2020 due to Covid restrictions.  This year, we are not hosting them again because our organs are both sealed off to protect them from the major restoration works happening in the church now.  St Mary-Le-Bow has kindly agreed to host them this year.  To know who are the organists and their programmes performing this year, please click this link The Eric Thompson Charitable Trust Organ Recital 2021.

    We hope they will be back in our church again in 2022, once the renovation of the church is completed.


    We also seek the support of everyone to practice universal good hygiene:

    • Catch it – sneeze / cough into a tissue.
    • Bin it – bin the tissue.
    • Kill it – wash your hands.
    • Do not touch your face unless you’ve washed your hands.

    Let us continuously pray for one another and stay calm amids this virus concern.



    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.

    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. 


    The church resumes its weekly Holy Communion Service every Wednesday and Friday in the Commonwealth Chapel at 8:30 - 9:00am and 1:15 - 1:50pm, respectively. The broadcast live via Facebook Live is now happening on our Friday service.  Until we are finally over the pandemic, wearing of face mask is encouraged when you attend this service.
