As a church we have helped to reinvigorate and relaunch (sometimes called ‘church planting’) five other church communities. Click on the blue title link to go to the church website:
All Souls are a growing Church of England congregation rooted in the local community of north St Margarets and south Isleworth. Sunday morning (10.30am) and afternoon (4.30pm) services at All Souls bring together children and adults of all ages for a relaxed and informal time, characterised by a friendly welcome, contemporary music and lively children's groups. There is opportunity for personal prayer and a relevant bible-based talk. You don't have to fit a particular mold to come along - whether you're coming with children or on your own, as someone living locally or visiting the area, looking to join or to visit just once, you will find a friendly welcome.
During the week we have daytime and evening small groups, run exploratory courses for those wanting to find out more about the Christian faith, maintain a lively website and host a parent and toddlers’ group (Little Souls). The church is led by Richard Frank , Vicar of All Souls, together with a range of teams that oversee the various aspects of the church's life and work.
St Saviour’s, Sunbury
David McDougall, Senior Leader of St Saviour’s Church:
"If you are looking for a church where there are all ages from all different kinds of backgrounds then St Saviours is the church for you! Our Children’s and Teens work is flourishing and there is an exciting group for every age.
The mid week work amongst older people is strong and they have an amazing social programme! They are always at the Theatre, on Walks, enjoying Pub Lunches and now go together on an Annual Weeks Holiday – this year to Chester!
We are a growing church and have many different aspects of community based work. One aspect of this that we are really excited about is our community Food Bank called ‘Restore’ which is resourcing by referral those who are caught in the poverty trap. We run courses like Alpha to help people find out what Jesus and his church is all about and we run Foundation’s courses which help people deepen their faith. I hope that you will come and visit us soon – you will be very welcome."
St Saviour’s Church is a community of Christian people with a living faith, enjoying authentic worship and reaching out to its area with practical love.
Ivybridge Community church is a church for people who don't want to go to church. We believe that people couldn't wait to get to see Jesus because he was dynamic, exciting and challenging. These are not words that most people would use to describe church today. Our desire is to get away from the formal, traditional style of church. That is not to say there is anything wrong with church like that, all we are saying is there are plenty of churches like that, and we don't want to be imitators, we would rather be innovators.
If people prefer a more formal service, there are plenty of churches to choose from. However, we have discovered that there are not many alternatives. After asking the people on the estate what they would like for a service, we have decided that our services will be short, lively and relevant to everyday life. Usually with a bad joke at the start of the service!! It is our prayer and hope that God will use us to bring back the sense of excitement for going to church and following Jesus that people had when Jesus walked this earth.
We believe in a God of love, where everyone matters and is accepted and forgiven, because that is what the Bible tells us.
We believe in a God of miracles and second chances.
We believe in a God who loves to change lives for the better.
We believe God is good and fun and has a great sense of humour, and wants to give you life, life in all its fullness.
ICC is part of the Church of England - we're Christians, which means simply followers of Jesus. We believe that Jesus came to talk about, live out and offer the love of God for each human being.
In response to years of campaigning by local residents and with the help of Holy Trinity Brompton, St Stephens Twickenham and the Diocese of London, a new team have been encouraged to ‘stay local’ and help re-start this historic church community. Our vision is to Love Jesus, Build Community and Transform Lives. We hope to be playing our part within a broader renewal of the worldwide church which we believe is happening now across all parts and denominations of the church. St John’s Hampton Wick is led by Rev Graham & Celine Singh, Rev Jerry & Camilla Field and a growing team of volunteers. Sunday Services are at 10am.
Our vision and call to Hounslow West is essentially the same as that of St Stephen’s and every church; to worship Jesus, to love each other whilst we go out to love and share Jesus with those who live and work around us. Our hope and prayer is that many will come to know the love, grace, forgiveness, hope and peace of Jesus through our presence in Hounslow West and that his light will shine to transform lives around us.
