iconWorkers at St Helen's

Workers across London need to hear the life saving news of Jesus. Christians across the City use St Helen's to help them reach their colleagues. Whether in our lunchtime public meetings, small groups or meeting individuals, we believe people are saved as they hear and believe. Opening the Bible is central to what we do.

Lunchtime talks at St Helen's

Lunchtime talks take place midweek at St Helen's and across London. They are designed to be accessible for everyone. Find out more about our lunchtime talks and similar events taking place across London through the Gospel at Work website.
