St Stephen Walbrook: New website

St Stephen Walbrook has a tremendous new website which can be found at On the site you will find details of our regular weekly services and upcoming events, live sermons as well as many articles about the rich history, heritage and features of this unique church, described by Sir John Summerson as ‘the pride of English architecture’.

The Events calendar on the site is powered by Churchapp which enables you to create a MyChurch account providing on-the-go access to our calendar and other useful information such as rotas. Churchapp also enables our online giving facility.

We have included on the homepage this prayer, written by Bishop Thomas Ken, which is at one time thought to have been inscribed on the door of St Stephen Walbrook: “O God, make the door of this house wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship, narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and strife. Make its threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling-block to children, nor to straying feet, but rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter’s power. God make the door of this house the gateway to Thine eternal kingdom.”

As part of our commitment to cultural programming, the site also includes two artist's perspectives on the interior of St Stephen Walbrook. Paul Raftery and Dan Lowe's time-lapse video of the church was recently premiered in the Sacred Geometries exhibition at the Anise Gallery. Daniel Bourke is undertaking a digital residency with St Stephen Walbrook re-creating the building as a virtual environment. His video on the website is one of his initial imaginative responses to the space.
