St Saviours Guildford


St Saviour’s is a large and lively charismatic evangelical Anglican church in central Guildford. We are made up of people from all ages, stages and backgrounds and we have a vision to ‘Love God, love people and make a difference’ in Guildford and beyond.  

Our church and church centre are busy on Sundays for worship and throughout the week for church groups and community outreach. Our Sunday services are at 9.00am, 10.30am and 6.00pm. Groups for children run at 10.30am and 6.00pm and for young people at 6.00. Our amazing Trekkers ministry to children and young people with additional needs runs at 10.30am and 6.00pm. During lockdown, we have developed a strong online presence with our services broadcast live on Youtube. Please visit our website to find out more about us

We completed a major refurbishment of the Church Centre three years ago, have invested significantly in production technology to ensure high quality online delivery and office systems to support effective church administration. We are also fortunate in the specialist skills of members of the Operations team.

We believe that in this season God has given us three priorities – to love, to build and to reach.  We want to be a church family that knows just how much God loves us, and shares that incredible love with everyone we meet.  We also want to help everyone in our church family be part of a small group, where they are encouraged to become more like Jesus in every area of their lives. Finally, we want to reach our local neighbourhood – to get to know our community better and to see it transformed by the Good News of Jesus.
