    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.  In August, the church will still be open each weekday but less hours than usual  according to staff availability.

    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.

    The Lord Mayor's Election Day Service is on Wednesday 2nd October at 10:45am.  Everyone is welcome to this service.
