The Lord Mayor will appear three times in our Carol Services this December. The first one is on Friday 6th December at 11am for the Candlewick Ward Club Carol Service. Her second appearance is on Thursday 19th December at 1:10pm for the City of London Staff & City Police Carol Service. And the final appearance will be on The Lord Mayor's Carol Service on Monday 23rd December at 5:30pm. A festive refreshment will follow after the 19th and 23rd Carol Services.
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 8am 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 Tower 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 8.30 - 9.00am, in the Tower Chapel.
We will hold the Lord Mayor's Carol Service on Monday 23rd December at 5:30pm. There will be mince pies and wine after the service. We extend a special welcome to you to join us at these services if you have not visited us before.
We are pleased to announce the publication of a new version of the book Rules for the Conduct of Life. This exciting new venture has been undertaken by the Guild Vicar, Canon David Parrott, who has brought this landmark book, with its invaluable teachings and advice, right into the twenty-first century.
More information can be found here.
Another book by David, which we recently launched, is The Windows of St Lawrence Jewry, a glossy and colourful guide book explaining in details the intircate designs and their purposes.
