Welcome toThe Guild Church of St Martin within Ludgate

Welcome to The Church of St Martin within Ludgate. We are situated on Ludgate Hill near St Paul’s Cathedral and almost opposite City Thameslink station (Ludgate Hill exit). We are open every day except Saturdays, which is usually reserved for special services. There is no admission charge. Many visit us to look at this beautiful Wren church restored in 1684 or to find a quiet space to reflect and pray in the busy working week. Feel free to light a candle, leave a prayer for our weekly Eucharist service or just explore the Christian faith and to meet with God. Others visit us to seek pastoral support and counselling including bereavement counselling.

We serve the working community by offering spiritual direction as well as hosting free legal advice sessions.  We celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ at our weekly Thursday lunchtime services from 1:15-2pm. As mentioned above, the church is also used for special services such as Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals and Carol Services. We also provide a space for choir practices and music concerts. You can find out more about us from other sections of our website and are most welcome to contact us direct or visit.
