Unity through inclusion!

Two churches in one parish,

united by the waters of Regent’s Canal,

running through the heart of Little Venice.

Extending a warm welcome

Welcome to our website. The Parish of Little Venice in west London is an inclusive community embracing people irrespective of gender, race, age, religious background or sexual orientation.

Our website will tell you something of the life shared in our two churches and our primary school as we seek to bring Christ into the hearts and homes of the people in our area.

We offer a liturgy which is recognisable and accessible and a welcome which is sincere. We recognise that people come to Church for a variety of reasons, all of them good. Some come at a time of great joy, following the birth of a child or with the desire to formalise and celebrate a loving relationship. Others come as a result of sadness such as the sickness or death of someone very dear. Some come to find inspiration and hope through worship and friendship. We respect your motives and needs and will try to help you in whatever ways we can.

We embrace all who worship, all who doubt and all who would move from fear to faith.

After forty years of faithful service in this parish Fr Gary Bradley retired at the end of July 2023. We now embark on a period of change and transition while we discern God’s will for our two churches as the future unfolds. Please pray for us as we seek to listen to the Spirit of God, and follow where the Lord is leading us. We are hopeful and expectant.
