Welcome to St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall


    Goodbye to Arnel

    It is with a sad heart that we have to say goodbye to Arnel from paid employment with St Lawrence Jewry after over 10 years of loyal service. He has been such a fixture at the church, so we are very sorry to see him leave us, but wish him and Ian every success in as they look to the future, with moving back to the Philippines very much on the cards.

    To recognise his work the Church has opened a leaving fund for Ian and Arnel and if you wish to contribute the details are as follows: -

    Account Name: St Lawrence Jewry Guild Church Council (or just St Lawrence Jewry)

    Account Number: 22158368

    Sort Code: 23 05 80

    Bank: Metro Bank

    Please mark the donations clearly – for Arnel Sullano.

    If you wish to send a message, can you please send it via email or send it to the church – I collect the post weekly.

    Closing date for donations – Monday 5th September

    Thanks for all your hard work and Bon Voyage Arnel.

    The Chair & The Guild Church Council of St Lawrence Jewry


    The church is now closed to the public to give way for the ongoing renovation works inside the church.  This might takes few months to complete.  We are hoping to reopen the church again in January 2023.  Please watch this space for further announcement.

    For prayers and services, you can visit our neaby churches: St Mary-Le-Bow, St Vedast alias Foster, St Margaret Lothbury or St Stephen Walbrook.  Their vicars/rectors will also be willing to assist you in pastoral care.


    The church is now in interregnum as Revd Canon David Parrott finally retired as the Guild Vicar of St Lawrence Jewry Church on Sunday 31st October 2021.  He led his final service as the Guild Vicar on Friday 29th October which was broadcast live through Facebook Live.  It was a moving service followed by a reception where a part of the video tribute was shown.  Over 50 people sent their video tributes to David which can now be viewed through YouTube.  We thank God for David and Sue for their over 12 years of ministries where they have touched thousands of people and brought them into the light of Christ.  We also like to thank the people who have sent their video tributes, words tributes, donation and support to David and Sue.

    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 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 when the church reopens again. 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. 


    Church services are currently suspended due to the current restoration works on the church.  Please watch this space for further announcement.
