Welcome to the Website for the Parish and Pilgrimage Church of St Magnus the Martyr in the City of London. Our church is built where all people crossing the old London Bridge used to enter the City, and standing on the cross roads, it has seen many important events in its 1000 year history. The object for which the church was originally built has not changed; now as then, prayers are offered daily to God, and He is worshipped in the beauty of holiness, within the Anglo Catholic tradition. Now as then, people who work in the City, or who come from further afield set aside their daily concerns and spend a time of peace and prayer, asking for and receiving God's peace in their hearts. We welcome visitors from around the world, who come to marvel at the beautiful interior and to see our world-famous 4 metre long model of the old London Bridge, or listen to our celebrated new ring of bells.
Please take some time to explore this website, to enjoy the virtual tour and relish the history of this place. Better still, if you are in London, do visit us. If you would like to receive instruction in the Christian faith, would like to talk about any concerns in confidence, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
