The Church of the Holy Spirit believes in the formation of a Christian identity made possible by our devotion to Jesus Christ in prayer and service. Over recent years we have seen the church become much more a focus of life in this community along the southside of Clapham Common. We especially welcome you to our Sunday Liturgy which follows the best traditions of the Anglican church in sacrament and scripture, with good preaching and a small but growing music programme. We are gifted with many people in our congregation and try to encourage all to take appropriate parts in various aspects of the worship. We are known for our habit of hospitality to the large number of newcomers here in this very mobile part of London and have special provision for families and children.

Study and prayer fellowships have a long standing place in our church as do social events.

The church has a tradition of pastoral care and outreach to the local neighbourhood and to the world.
