st lawrence jewry

I visited St Lawrence Jewry on Friday. We weren't there for very long, and I'm still visually impaired, so it wasn't the most effective visit ever, but it was good to get into another City of London church.

The church site. The Wikipedia page. The Google images page. Flickr images.

And it features in a BBC news story from 12 January:
St Lawrence Jewry church blesses laptops and mobiles: Laptops and Blackberry mobile phones have been blessed in a church ceremony in the City of London. Canon David Parrott blessed the gadgets at the St Lawrence Jewry church in an updated version of a traditional "Plough Monday" back-to-work ceremony. A number of parishioners held their mobile phones up as Rev Parrott recited a prayer. He said: "It's the technology that is our daily working tool and it's a technology we should bless." The 17th Century building is the official church of the City of London Corporation.
