Emmanuel is a lively and inclusive community in the Church of England and worldwide Anglican Commuion.  Our Church has stood in its prominent place at the heart of West Hampstead, next to West End Green since 1897.  

We would see ourselves as generously orthodox and everyone is warmly welcome at all our services and activities, irrespective of race, age, physical ability, way of life or sexual orientation.

We rejoice in the great and wonderful diversity of God’s creation and we recognize and celebrate the beauty of his image in one another.

We much look forward to welcoming you in person.

Sung Eucharist
Our more traditional service on a Sunday is the 10.30 am Sung Eucharist and lasts for about one hour. As its name implies, music is an integral part of the service which is traditional in style with thoughtful and reflexive preaching. Come and join us and find out what it's all about. We welcome everyone. You are especially welcome if you want to meet a lively congregation and get to know people over refreshments afterwards. During the Eucharist, Children's Church meets in the room off the north east porch. The children start the Eucharist in Church with the congregation and then process out for their activities after the collect of the day, for fun activities and worship which most connect with them, returning to church for holy communion / blessings. On the first Sunday of each month, children play a full part in the service, serving at the altar, reading the scriptures, leading the prayers and singing in our children's choir. Babies and young children can use the books and cushions in the creche facility in the community room in the south aisle, but they remain the responsibility of their parents. Ask the people on the door about anything you wish to know they will be able to help you or point out someone who can answer your query.
