Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We regret to announce that Holy Saviour Church is closed until further notice.

We will endeavour to keep this site updated as new guidance is issued but you can check the latest health advice from the NHS website and the specific advice for churches on the Church of England website.

While the church is closed, our ministry team is publishing material to keep in touch with you. You can find it on our Keeping In Touch page.

If you have a Facebook account, you can join our Facebook group.

A message from our Vicar:
It must seem like a very long time to us all since we were able to physically be together, indeed that may be starting to feel like ‘another life’. I am though immensely encouraged by the way that the Holy Saviour community have been practically and emotionally reaching out to one another in these most extraordinary times and I hope that we will all continue to do so.

No doubt one day we shall again be able to sing together in our beautiful church building. Until then, I thought it might be helpful just to clarify the pattern of worship that can be reached by the Holy Saviour Church website, the Holy Saviour Facebook Group and the weekly Notice Sheet which is sent out electronically and in paper form to those who need it.

On Sundays, there will continue to be a recorded homily from one of us on the Ministry Team. There may also sometimes be recorded prayers and readings and on certain occasions a more complete recording of the eucharist. These will be accompanied by the relevant links to hymns and appropriate liturgy in text form where necessary.

On the First Sunday of each month we will be offering a Children’s Praise service, with a recorded bible story and links to the same songs that we would otherwise be singing in church. We would also like to be able to offer something for our children on the third Sunday of each month, when we would normally be having our Children’s Church activities. We’ll let you know about this if there are further developments.

On Wednesdays there will be a recorded short form of Morning Prayer.

Can I also remind you that you can speak to me on 01462 456140 or reach me at holysaviour1865@yahoo.com and also that every one of us, irrespective of whether or not we are ‘digital folk’ are at the end of each others’ phone lines!

I thank everybody who is working behind the scenes in different ways to help keep us all in touch with one another.

Peace and Very Best Wishes to you all.
God Bless


Welcome to the website of Holy Saviour Church. We hope you will find it interesting and helpful.

Holy Saviour Church is a beautiful church with a special atmosphere and is cherished by the people who care for it and worship here.  We are a friendly, welcoming congregation.

Our worship is ‘modern catholic’ in its ethos, with a variety of services, and a tradition of excellent music. We have a sound/loop system, and wheelchairs are available.  We arrange many special services during the year, and are the home of the Hitchin Christmas Tree Festival.

You can find us on Radcliffe Road in Hitchin, an attractive market town in North Hertfordshire, in the Diocese of St Albans. There are four Anglican churches that together form the Parish of Hitchin team ministry, and each serves a district of the town: Holy Saviour, St Faith’s, St Mark’s, and St Mary’s.  We are also an active member of Churches Together in Hitchin.

Our Parish Mission statement:
We aim to share God’s love, forgiveness and care with the whole community through proclamation, service, action, partnership, nurture and spirituality

Please use our contact page if you have any further questions or would like to get in touch with us, and we look forward to seeing you.

Team Vicar
