Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

  • News!!!

    "Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification." Romans 14:19 NIV

    Do we live towards having inner peace which would lead to having peace around us?


    Congratulations to Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley for being elected as the 689th Lord Mayor of London on 29th September 2016.  His Installation Service is on Friday 11th November 2016 in St James Garlickhythe, where he is the organist and a PCC member.  The Lord Mayor Show is on Saturday 12th November 2016.  Let us all include him in our prayers as he takes on the big responsibility of leading and promoting the City of London to the world.


     There is a Christopher Webb Exhibition entitled "The Splendour of Life" from Tuesday 4th October to Friday 4th November 2016  to commemorate his 50th death anniversary. 


    ePastor is a new initiative from St Lawrence Jewry.  Got a question about life, faith or anything? Uncertain about coming inside the church and asking? Then this is for you! Send you question to epastor and we will reply.


    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 9am 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  Royal Marines 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 7.30 - 8.00am, in the Royal Marines Chapel.

    The service where the Lord Mayor will be in attendance is Lord Mayor's Carol Service on Wednesday on 21st December 2016 at 5:30pm.  There will be wine and mince pies reception after the service.
