Church of England Diocese of Winchester St. Saviour Iford

St Saviour's Bournemouth

Welcome to St Saviour’s Church

We’re a friendly, caring, inter-generational Anglican church serving the Iford/Boscombe East area of Bournemouth. We are committed to loving Jesus with our whole lives, and to loving and serving each other and our wider community.

Weekly services

Everyone is welcome at our morning praise service at 10.30am, including a mixture of ‘in person’ and online elements. There is currently no need to book, but seats will be available on a first come, first served basis.  

A midweek traditional Communion service, with hymns accompanied by our organist, is held on Wednesday mornings at 9.30am. A time for contemplation and quiet.

If you are unable to attend in church, please join St Saviour’s online! The church is a more than just a building and we are seeking to worship, pray, and hear the Word of God together as we connect online. Our online services can found on our YouTube channel:

Pastoral support

We have a team of fit and able people contacting the most vulnerable in our church family. See contact details below if you need to access this help or if you are able to offer support.

Our children’s minister Caz Gatehouse is keeping in contact with children/families from Kidz Ablaze and Messy Church, and is providing materials. She can be contacted via her email. Follow her on Instagram at st.stavioursparents.

Giving is an important part of our spiritual and church life. The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it.

We give to our church in a variety of ways. If you are able to give more at this time, please visit our online donations page by clicking here.
