Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall




    The Annual Guild Church Council Meeting (AGCM) was held on Monday 21st June 2021 via Microsoft Teams where the 2020 GCC and Accounts Reports were presented.  To view the said reports, please click here.


    The big roof restoration project is now in progress but the church is still open to the public Monday to Friday 10am-5pm.  We resume the weekly Holy Communion Service on Wednesdays  in the Commonwealth Chapel at 8:30 - 9:00am, which we will also broadcast live via Facebook Live.  The Friday Holy Communion is at 1:15pm.  Wearing of face mask is encouraged to attend this service.  To view latest Holy Communion Service, please click here

    Please note that all future lunchtime concerts have been cancelled until further notice.  There is a possbility that the piano lunchtime recital series might resume in autumn. Watch this space.  We are also making annoucements in our TwitterFacebook and YouTube accounts. 


    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.

    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 ground is shifting beneath us all, but we stand firm on the rock which is Jesus Christ. In a climate of fear and uncertainty I urge us all as faithful Christians to have our eyes fixed on the greater things of life and to trust that we have assurance and hope in our Lord Jesus. I also encourage all members to be aware of their neighbours and to assist with shopping and practical help where needed, within the constraints of the advice we are being given.

    David created a video specifically for the Livery Companies in the City of London.  To view it, please visit our YouTube channel.  

    Please remember that our Lord and God the Father are unchanged in this situation and by the power of the Holy Spirt we will all get through this.  We wish everyone a blessed New Year.


    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. 


    We resume the weekly Holy Communion Service on Wednesdays  in the Commonwealth Chapel at 8:30 - 9:00am, which we will also broadcast live via Facebook Live.  We also resume the service every Friday at 1:15pm.  Wearing of face mask is encouraged when you attend this service.
