A very warm welcome to the website of Emmanuel Church, West Hampstead, an inclusive community in the Anglican tradition in the Church of England and Diocese of London and in the Borough and Deanery of Camden.

Emmanuel Church has stood as a beacon of God’s love and light in its prominent position alongside West End since 1897.  As a church community we would see ourselves as generously orthodox and everyone is warmly welcome at all our services and activities, irrespective of race, age, gender identity, physical ability, sexual orientation or way of life.  We rejoice in the great and wonderful diversity of God’s creation and we recognise and celebrate the beauty of God’s image uniquely revealed in one another.

This website is currently under reconstruction but we very much hope that you will come back soon and visit us here or in person.
