A message from our Vicar:
Welcome to Holy Saviour Church. This has been a prayerful community at the heart of this area of Hitchin since 1865. Sadly, like all other places of worship across our country we are unable to open the church building at the moment as we all struggle with the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. That said, whilst we are sorry not to be able to pray in our usual beautiful surroundings, the body of Christ is made of his people and not of any bricks and mortar. This church family is still very much alive and well even if we are unable to physically come together for the time being.

We will continue to do our best to shine the light of hope in these very difficult and uncertain times. Do keep in touch with the latest news from Holy Saviour Church on our website and Facebook pages.

You can contact me personally at holysaviour1865@yahoo.com
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.
