Latymer Community Church

Following Jesus, loving people and making disciples in Ladbroke Grove


Latymer Community Church is a local church for local people. We are a small, informal and friendly church, and you are very welcome to join us, wherever you are on your faith journey. We meet together every Sunday at 11.00am.

Our vision is to follow Jesus, love people and make disciples in Ladbroke Grove and our values are to be biblical, prayerful, evangelistic, experimental and generous. We live this out in a number of ways. Making disciples is really important to us so we are excited by our new Discipleship Night on Thursday evenings at 6.45pm where we enjoy a tasty meal together and learn more about God through studying the bible or the Freedom in Christ course. There are also two daytime Bible study groups. We meet for prayer fortnightly on a Monday night and have a worship night monthly on Fridays. Twice a term we have special services such as our Big Breakfast where we enjoy a tasty cooked breakfast and invite people to hear about Jesus. 

Our church is led by a leadership team, headed up by Steve and Tanya Bownds and supported by Jackie and Simon Blanchflower and Mary White.

We are very active in our local community and have strong links with other churches and charities nearby. Latymer has worked in the North Kensington area for over 150 years and was originally a Shaftesbury Society Mission. Latymer is a member of the Pioneer group of churches and have a close relationship with  Bless Community Church, another Pioneer church in West London. Our youth work is in partnership with the Eden Network and we also partner with London City Mission and one of their missionaries works with us. Links are maintained with Livability (the successor of the Shaftesbury Society). We also maintain links with other local churches, particularly through active participation in the Together for God group of churches that operates in North Kensington and North Westminster.

Come and join us at Latymer Community Church on Sundays at 11.00am.
