The City of London Churches

The City of London churches are now re-opening on the UK government's 'roadmap' to recovery from a series of lockdowns in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here for current COVID-19 guidance for churches from the Church of England.

Most now welcome visitors regularly, some on limited days and hours, a few not yet at all. Visitors and worshippers are strongly advised to check with the individual churches for current hours and conditions. The Friends' listing guide, City Events, is updated regularly with news of services, concerts and opening hours, and downloadable as a PDF from the home page or City Events page of this site.

The Friends of the City Churches' volunteer Church Watching scheme has now resumed, so some fifteen churches now welcome worshippers and visitors when our Watchers are in attendance; the current list is posted on the home page of this site.

Many churches now broadcast services online: links to Web sites and contact details, below. These links are correct to 3 September 2021, but please check the individual churches' Web sites for current information.
