Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

  • News!!!

    At last!  The St Lawrence Jewry Pitkin Guide Book is now published.  This 28-colourful-pages book is packed with historical information about our church and costs only £7 (£10 if you would like us to post it to you). If you want to order and have them posted to you, please contact Arnel.  For a small donation towards the church, he might even wrap them up for you if you are buying them as presents. 

    We have a special promotion for all our publications: The Rules for the Conduct of Life, The St Lawrence Jewry Windows and the Pitkin Guide.  Buy any 2 for £10 only (£13 if you want it posted).  


    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 civic service is Court of Common Council Service on 1st May 2014 at 11:45 am. This is the time when the Court of Common Council pray for God's guidance before they convene for the first time at the beginning of the City of London Corporation's financial year. 

    SLJ publication: Rules for the Conduct of Life
