Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

  • News!!!



    Happy New Year to all!

    We are still accepting donation towards our Christmas Appeal 2019 to provide at least 500 bibles to Rwanda.  Any donation towards this cause will be highly appreciated but we invite you to donate £35 for a pack of 5 bibles.  Not only will the people of Rwanda be thankful for your generosity, the church will also include you and your loved ones in our prayers during the weekly services in December.  You can give your donation to the church office by card, cash, cheque (payable to “St Lawrence Jewry”) or through our Give.net webpage.  Let us help spread God’s Word in Rwanda by providing them the bibles that they desperately need.

    We also recently launch our Grand Piano Restoration Crowdfunding page through Spacehive to raise fund for the restoration of our Steinway Grand Piano that we use for our weekly piano recitals where we give opportunities to pianists, especially those who are just starting their music careers, to showcase their skills/talents to a very appreciate audience. 




    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.

    Plow Monday Service is on Monday 13th January at 5:30pm.  This year's service is focused on the City Visitors Development Department of the City of London.  Everyone is welcome to this service.
