Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

  • News!!!


    "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." (Galatians 5:22-23) 

    Are we bearing any of these fruits in us?


    The Lord Mayor’s Election Day service takes place on Monday 29th September at 10:45am. This is one of the great Civic events of the year, where all Masters of Livery companies & Aldermen with their respective beadles process from the Great Hall of the Guildhall to the church to seek spiritual guidance from God before electing a new Lord Mayor. It takes a lot of organising. Again please pray for this key event in the life of our church.

    If you are planning to run for the Lord Mayor of London, please watch this short video.


    Good news!  Our church finally showed a positive income at the end of the year 2013.  To see our Independently Examined 2013 Accounts, please click here.


    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.

    The next service where The Lord Mayor will be in attendance is the St Lawrence Jewry Annual Service on Tuesday 8th July 2014 at 6:00pm. This service is to commemorate the 57th anniversary of the church dedication to be the official church of the Lord Mayor and the City of London Corporation after it was rebuilt following the extensive damage during the Blitz.
