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

A very warm welcome to the website of Emmanuel Church, West Hampstead, an inclusive community in the Anglican 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 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.

HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021

It was with great sadness that we heard on 09 April of the death of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.  We offer our prayers for the repose of his soul and for HM the Queen and all the Royal Family in their time of bereavement.  

Here at Emmanuel Church the bell will ring out 99 times at 12 noon on Saturday 10 April and a later that evening at 6 pm a Requiem Mass will be said to which all are welcome.  During all of our church services on Sunday 11 April special prayers will also be said.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory – and may his memory be a blessing.
