Charity information

St Saviours Church, Iford (Winchester)

We promote the mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical. We also have maintenance responsibilities for the Church, Hall and Link buildings. We provide the usual church services and ceremonies for the parish, but also seek to reach out into the wider community. We do this by working with the elderly and residential homes and with families, youth and children. As well as organising a variety of groups across all ages, we run special events, like Single Parents Fairs.

Founded 1933
