The Salvation Army – Notting Hill Church

We are The Salvation Army in Notting Hill - we are located on Portobello Road.


We meet at 10am every Friday for Cafe Church & Fellowship, it is inclusive and informal. We encounter God in a variety of ways: including through a message, Bible study, craft, prayer, and personal reflection. Light refreshments are available throughout and we end our time through serving our community at The Sanctuary Cafe, open from 11am to 2pm.

Our mission in Notting Hill

We run a community programme through which we seek to respond to the needs of the Notting Hill community. Please see see the website menu at the bottom of this page for timings, alternatively email for details.

Our message is based on the Bible. Our ministry is motivated by the love of God. Our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in his name without discrimination.

  • To share the good news
  • To serve others without discrimination
  • To nurture disciples of Jesus
  • To care for creation 
  • To seek justice and reconciliation


Presence in Notting Hill

Present in Notting Hill from 1878, and situated on Portobello Road since 1924, the Salvation Army had discerned the need to show God’s love to the community of Notting Hill.

Notting Hill Corps opened as a Christian Mission station in 1878. As announced in the 1978 July edition of the ‘Christian Mission Magazine’.


WITH the Victoria Hall, or Bijou Theatre, for Sundays, and two smaller places kindly lent us for weeknights, we have made a commencement, and after about a fortnight's work, heard of a real Mission Society over twenty strong, and of open-air an indoor service·, which give every promise of glorious doings ere long. Whereof more next month.


Notting Hill Corps moved into our current church on Portobello Road in 1924 - the grand opening event was attended by British Commissioner Florence Booth who led a stone-laying ceremony.

Today, we continue to be deeply involved in sharing life with people and being part of the Notting Hill community.
