Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall

    The big roof restoration project is now in progress and the church will be closed in August.  We will open the church again and resume the weekly Holy Communion Services on Wednesday 1st September in the Commonwealth Chapel at 8:30 - 9:00am.  We still start broadcasting  via Facebook Live our Friday Holy Communion at 1:15pm starting on 3rd September.  Until we are finally over the pandemic, wearing of face mask is encouraged to attend this service.  To view latest Holy Communion Service, please click here

    The Monday lunchtime piano recital series will resume on Monday 6th September at 1pm.  To view who will be playing and their programme, please visit our September 2021 Piano Programme webpage.  We will broadcast the series live via Facebook Live and later on posted in our Twitter and YouTube accounts. Please follow us in all of our social media to get these videos too.


    The Archdeacon of London announced the early retirement of David as the Guild Vicar of St Lawrence Jewry Church.  You'll find more details about it in his announcement letter and in David's video in our YouTube and other social media platforms.  A GoFundMe Page was created to give an opportunity for people who knew David to thank him for his ministry.

    Despite of this, rest assured that the church will continue to function as the City of London church and to its mission in bringing the Light of Christ to the City of London.


    We also seek the support of everyone to practice universal good hygiene:

    • Catch it – sneeze / cough into a tissue.
    • Bin it – bin the tissue.
    • Kill it – wash your hands.
    • Do not touch your face unless you’ve washed your hands.

    Let us continuously pray for one another and stay calm amids this virus concern.



    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.

    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. 


    The church is closed in August and will resume the weekly Holy Communion Service on Wednesday 1st September  in the Commonwealth Chapel at 8:30 - 9:00am.
