Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall



    The church is now closed to the public to give way for the ongoing renovation works inside the church.  This might takes 6-8 months to complete.  We are hoping to reopen the church again in September 2022.  Please watch this space for further announcement.

    For prayers and services, you can visit our neaby churches: St Mary-Le-Bow, St Vedast alias Foster, St Margaret Lothbury or St Stephen Walbrook.  Their vicars/rectors will also be willing to assist you in pastoral care.


    The church is now in interregnum as Revd Canon David Parrott finally retired as the Guild Vicar of St Lawrence Jewry Church on Sunday 31st October 2021.  He led his final service as the Guild Vicar on Friday 29th October which was broadcast live through Facebook Live.  It was a moving service followed by a reception where a part of the video tribute was shown.  Over 50 people sent their video tributes to David which can now be viewed through YouTube.  We thank God for David and Sue for their over 12 years of ministries where they have touched thousands of people and brought them into the light of Christ.  We also like to thank the people who have sent their video tributes, words tributes, donation and support to David and Sue.  

    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 Lord Mayor's Carol Service on Monday 20th December 2021 at 5:30pm.  Our weekly Holy Communion Service is now held in the mian church 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 will also continue until 20th December 2021.  To view who will be playing and their programme, please visit our November 2021 Piano Programme webpage.  We will broadcast the series live via Facebook Live.


    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.
