Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it in abundance” (John 10:10)

“The glory of God is a human being fully alive, and human life consists in the vision of God” (St Irenaeus – 2nd century)

A very warm welcome to the website of Emmanuel Church, West Hampstead, an inclusive community in the catholic tradition of the Church of England, in the 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, rooted in the liberating life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, 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.

Thank you for connecting with us online.  We very much hope that you will come back soon and visit us here or in person.
