Welcome to St. Saviour’s Website.
The Anglican Church of St Saviour is a Christian community that worships in a fine Victorian church building which lies in a tranquil setting very near, but set back from, the bustle of Chalk Farm in London NW3. There are usually two Sunday services, unless there is a Sunday evening concert. Our congregation for Sunday Parish Eucharist is not large, yet is a healthy mix of young and old, and provides Junior Church activity for young people between the age of 3 and 14.
The church is open most Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 8.30-9am, most Saturdays from 9.30am to 11am, and most Wednesdays from 8.30am to 3.30pm. We also have a mid-weekly daytime service of Holy Communion, which is followed by lunch together. Each weekday except Monday there is some prayer and worship in the church, and we host a rich variety of concerts in St Saviour’s fine acoustic. In our Octagon Hall, next door to the church, there are a range of regular users, in addition to a private 'Octagon' Day Nursery for pre-school children, and other occasional hirers. St Saviour's Church Buildings are also used on Sundays by 'Shoreline Calvary' - an American evangelical church.
St Saviour's Mission Statement:
In Christ we welcome everyone: to grow together in faith that we might share the unconditional love of God for all
PCC Safeguarding Policy Statement
Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.
- We accept and endorse the principles set out in ‘Safeguarding in the Diocese of London’.
- We commit ourselves to nurture, protect and safeguard all our members, particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.
- We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of the whole church community.
- We undertake to exercise proper care in the selection, appointment, training and support of those working in both paid and voluntary positions with children or vulnerable adults, including the use of Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosures and making appropriate referrals to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
- We will respond without delay to concerns or allegations that a child or vulnerable adult may have been harmed, cooperating with the police and social care services in any investigation.
- We will challenge any abuse of power by anyone in a position of trust.
- We will seek to offer pastoral care and support to anyone who has suffered abuse, developing with them appropriate pastoral support.
- We will seek to offer pastoral care and support, including supervision and referral to the proper authorities, to any member of our church community known to have offended against a child, young person or vulnerable adult.
