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

LOCKDOWN 3.0 –  January 201

During Lockdown 3.0 – announced by the Prime Minister on Monday 04 January 2021 – church services are allowed to continue, but that the final decisions about whether to hold in-person services rests with the Parochial Church Council and clergy.  In view of the rapidly escalating number of cases in the council wards covered by our parish and those surrounding it, the PCC has decided for the next four weeks for our services to be entirely online, and that the decision will be reviewed again at the beginning of February.
