Westbourne Grove Church (known as The Grove!) is a small, friendly and diverse community of Christians in the Notting Hill area of West London.

We focus on following Jesus, loving one another and sharing God’s love with the wider community.

We are a community where every person can play their part and bring their own unique contribution. It’s not a church where the leader does everything – instead, we encourage everyone to participate in ways they feel they can, wherever they are on their journey. We are all part of the team!
