An Introduction to St Saviour's Church

Welcome to St Saviour's website which gives you some information about our church and congregation. We hope that you will enjoy our website and that you may like to come and visit us - you are very welcome.

St Saviour's Church is situated on Russell Street, (at the top of Wellington Street) in Luton - a 10 minute walk from the town centre. We have a friendly and welcoming congregation of all ages and backgrounds - a place to belong.

Luton has a diverse community and at St Saviour's everyone is welcome to Mass, which follows the traditional Anglo-Catholic style of worship within the Church of England.

St Saviour's Church is a beautiful building, and is in fact one of the gems of Luton! Since it was built in 1898, it has always offered worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, with incense used each Sunday at the Solemn Sung Mass.

    Liturgical Calendar



    Liturgical Season: Advent

    Sunday 3 December to Sunday 24 December, 2017

    Advent is a period of spiritual preparation in which many Christians make themselves ready for the coming, or birth of the Lord, Jesus Christ. The usual liturgical colour for Advent in the Western Church is purple. This colour is often used for hangings around the church, the vestments of the clergy, and the altar. Celebrating Advent typically involves a season of prayer, fasting, and repentance, followed by anticipation, hope, and joy. Advent is the beginning of the liturgical year and commences on the fourth Sunday before Christmas (sometimes known as Advent Sunday), the Sunday nearest to St Andrew's Day (30 November), this year, that is Sunday 3 December. Practices associated with Advent include keeping an Advent calendar, lighting an Advent wreath, praying an Advent daily devotional, and making their confession as a preparation for Christmass.

    Many Christians celebrate Advent not only by thanking God for Christ's first coming to Earth in the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas, but also for his presence among us today through the Holy Spirit, and in preparation and anticipation of his final coming in glory, at the end of time. The season offers the opportunity to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.
