We welcome you to the Church of St Antony’s, Wentworth Way. We will be celebrating our 60 Anniversary in September 2017. The church has been newly refurbished following storm damage in 2013 and we welcome new members, new ideas and new friends. We are small church which would like to grow- do join us!
Services are currently held on the fourth Sunday each month and on other Sundays worship is shared with St Edmund’s Church, Riddlesdown. T4U meets twice a month; on the third Monday we hold communion where worship is shared and followed by tea and cakes.
Most recently the worshipping community focussed on ‘faith‘ and ways to share our faith through ‘Faith Pictures’. This gave us the opportunity to join together with St Edmund’s Church and share our views of what faith means.
Links with the local community particularly matter to us and currently the church is regularly used by local community groups including a Dance studio, Karate, and a daily Pre-School. We would like to extend our links further with the community and should you be interested in using the Church Hall then please get in touch with the Parish Office.
T4U at St Antony's, a chance to meet and chat over a cup of tea on the first and third Monday of each month. On the first Monday, T4U is at 2.30 pm. Please note there will be no T4U on Monday 3rd April 2017.
On the Third Monday Holy Communion is celebrated at 2pm and T4U follows afterwards.
