The Salvation Army – Notting Hill Church

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

At Christmas Kilburn and Notting Hill Salvation Army churches come together to serve the needs of both communities.

This year we are once again running our Toy Hub. This is where local organisations and groups refer families to us who need a bit of a helping hand with purchasing a Christmas gift. The families come along and choose from our wide selection of toys for children and young people aged 0-18 years old. This will run between Tuesday 12 December and Wednesday 20 December.

If you would like to support us directly in this, you can go to our Amazon Wishlist and purchase a gift which will come straight to us and be placed in the Toy Hub.

Alongside the Toy Hub, we are also hoping to provide a number of other Christmas related items including wrapping and little festive food items. If you would like to support us in this, you can donate through our Just Giving page.

Thank you for all the support you give, it is very much appreciated, and especially at this time when everyone is feeling the cost of living pinch.


Our mission in Notting Hill

We meet at 11am every Sunday for Cafe Church & Fellowship, it is inclusive and informal, and 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 by sharing food together.

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.
