I'm starting a three month contracting job on Hatton Gardens, Holborn, London, this week, and am looking for a church in the area that says morning prayer. Would any London-based shipmate have any suggestions?

Not in Holborn itself - St. Alban's only advertises daily masses. The other church is evangelical and only seems to do Alpha midweek.

[URL= http://www.stgeorgesbloomsbury.org.uk/services.htm ]S. George's Bloomsbury[/URL] if not too far away - 9am Tues to Fridays. The rector used to be a student member of our congregation.

St. Martin in the Fields, a mile away, daily at 8

St Giles in the Fields is close by and of course there is also St Paul's Cathedral.

During a visit to St Alban's for weekday Mass some years ago, it was pointed out to me that although the Roman rite was used for Mass, there were small BCPs in racks under the chairs, used daily to recite Matins and Evensong. I wish I could find a current schedule, but St Alban's should indeed have Morning Prayer...might be worth a call or email.

S. Alban Holborn has a low Mass at 0800 each week day and Morning Prayer not until 0930 I think. As you'll find out, there are many more pubs to choose from in the Hatton Garden area than churches!

Hatton Garden is right on the edge of the City. Some of the City churches will be easy to walk to, also St Paul's cathedral of course. New St Pancras church is about 15/20 minutes walk away, Old St Pancras probably too far. I don't know their schedules but most of them have websites. There are some well-known nonconformist churches in the area but unlikely to do morning prayer! Also a couple of Roman Catholic churches nearby.

It is unlikely that you speak Italian, but if by any chance you do, you can tray at the Chiesa di San Pietro e San Paolo at Clerkenwell.
