All Saints’ Church Child’s Hill

Parish Church of All Saints Church Walk, Child’s Hill


Welcome to All Saints’

All Saints’ is the parish church at the heart of Child’s Hill in NW2. We are an inclusive community where all are welcome regardless of who you are. As a congregation we reflect the wide range of social and ethnic backgrounds which make up the rich diversity of London. We come together weekly to support each other as we grow in our relationship with God through prayer, friendship, and fun.

The Church is an oasis of serenity in the midst of the bustle of three major roads (the Finchley Road, Cricklewood Lane and The Hendon Way). If you would like to take a moment for reflection, prayer, or to shelter from the storms of the world outside, do come in and enjoy this sacred space.

The building is open from Monday to Thursday, 9.30am to 6pm.

Sunday Worship

8am Said Eucharist
10am Parish Eucharist

Sunday School

Every Sunday at 10am in Church Hall (not during school holidays). The children’s activities take place in the Church hall and then they join the Church Service for a blessing. Under 3-years-olds must be accompanied.


Our services have their roots in the Catholic Tradition of the Church of England. They are contemporary and engaging. The services (the music, the preaching, the prayers, and the Eucharist) are designed to help us celebrate life, to comfort us where we hurt, and to challenge us where we have grown complacent.

Interfaith Circle Time at Alyth Kindergarten

Interfaith Circle Time at Alyth Kindergarten

On Thursday 15th March 2018, a Rabbi, an Imam and a Vicar visited 45 children at Alyth Kindergarten (aged between 2-4 years old):  Imam Yusuf Rawat (Hendon Mosque and Islamic Centre), Rabbi Dov Kaplan (Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue) and Revd. Robin Sims-Williams (All Saints Childs Hill). Steve Derby the Director of Interfaith Matters co-ordinated and attended the visit.

“Children are never too young to learn about mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths. The children are learning to respect and celebrate each other’s differences and develop an understanding of diversity through people in the wider world”. Tor Alter, Head Teacher

The Circle Time explored what it means to be different and how we can look after each other regardless of different faiths. The children heard about each of the Faith Leaders traditions and customs and were shown items relating to their religion e.g. a Muslim prayer mat and Qur’an from Imam Yusuf.

“The interfaith talk was a great way to introduce the children to other religions and traditions, making them feel comfortable and familiar with people from different backgrounds and creating a sense of ‘togetherness, peace, harmony and respect.” Vivi Ben-David, Teacher.

An open letter from clergy and faith representatives in Barnet

An open letter from clergy and faith representatives in Barnet

We are a group of clergy and faith representatives in Barnet that meet in each other’s centres to foster good inter-religious relations and promote community cohesion. Our interfaith forum is convened under the auspices of Interfaith Matters, a local registered charity, and meetings have been held regularly for almost three years.

All members of the interfaith forum look forward to welcoming the clerics of Markaz El Tathgheef El Eslami, the new Islamic Centre at Golders Green Hippodrome, to our interfaith meetings.

At our last meeting, hosted by the Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Golders Green, members expressed every confidence that Barnet Council would address and resolve all legitimate concerns relating to additional traffic, less parking and the Centre’s use.

However, as clergy and faith representatives we unanimously deplored and condemned the hostile and, at times, racist response to the new Islamic Centre’s opening. It is our firm conviction that those that attend the Centre are as entitled to suitable and sufficient facilities as are enjoyed by all other faiths in Barnet, including Golders Green.

Indeed, we are sure the new Islamic community will contribute, with us, to the neighbourhood’s character, harmony and safety. We are also grateful to the Centre’s clerics who have already offered to host our next interfaith forum meeting and we look forward to this in the New Year.

The Gospel in Sound bites?
