St Antony's 60th Celebration
17 September 2017
St Antony's celebrates 60 years serving the people of Hamsey Green
On Sunday 17 September we celebrated St Antony’s Diamond Jubilee with a Eucharist service. The Rt Rev'd Jonathan Clark, The Bishop of Croydon, led the celebration and we were joined by the Rt Rev'd Dr David Atkinson, the Rev'd Jeremy Groombridge, former church members, guests and friends from around the parish.
Following the service we enjoyed the anniversary cake and also marked the 55th anniversary of the Women’s Social Group who are active supporters of the church.
Barbara Webster-Dudley writes “I can’t tell you how happy and emotional I felt, as I saw how much support we had for our 60th anniversary service at St Antony's here in Hamsey Green. Friends, W.S.G members, former church members and fellow church members filled the church with song and praise. I myself have been attending our church for 50 years, and have witnessed our membership reducing one way and another, which is sad. But with the love and support we had on Sunday 17th, it raises my hope for the outreach ahead for us all in the parish.”
W.S.G (Young Wives) is 55 years old. We meet every other Thursday, 7.45pm at St Antony’s. 02086575239
