We believe in the power of prayer. We have a loving Heavenly Father who longs to meet with us as we talk to him about the things that worry us and the things that make us happy.

On Monday mornings there is an opportunity to pray for the City, on zoom, between 7.45 and 8.45am. Email jeremy@stml.org.uk for an invite. All are welcome – come when you can, go when you need to.

Men’s Ministry

The Men’s Group meets every Thursday, online, at 8am. It’s a great opportunity to get connected with other men who work in the City of London. For more information or if you would like to join please contact the Church via email.

More about our services and events

We aim to serve those working in the Square Mile; to be on hand to pray for them, to hold services, which are sensitive to the time constraints and pressures of the City, to provide other opportunities to meet with other Christians and to offer a place for reflection and prayer throughout the week.

At the heart of our life is a commitment to worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ and making it possible for others to experience His love. We aim to offer a variety of services that will enable anyone to feel at home.

The finances of the Lothbury parish

It costs about £220,000 a year to run our church. That is about £4,200 a week to ensure that the Clergy and church staff are paid, the building which is Grade 1 listed is properly maintained and heated, the parish affairs are efficiently run and our worship services continue to the highest standards. Our church relies for its upkeep on the giving of the congregation in financial support and. We do not receive any support from the State or the Church of England.
