WELCOME

to St Antony's, Hamsey Green

Welcome to St Antony's

We welcome you to the Church of St Antony’s, Wentworth Way. We celebrated our 60 Anniversary in September 2017.

There are currently no regular services at St Antony. Worshippers are encouraged to attend services at All Saints, Sanderstead.

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.

THE FUTURE OF ST EDMUND’S CHURCH

On 27th August the Sanderstead Parochial Church Council agreed, by a decisive majority, to transfer St Edmund’s building and a limited number of roads to the parish of St James’s, Riddlesdown. The bulk of St Edmund’s District, including Riddlesdown Collegiate, will remain in the parish of Sanderstead. After comparing the financial needs and resources of the two parishes, it has also been agreed that St Edmund’s funds, apart from a small percentage for immediate needs, should remain in Sanderstead to help with our Mission here.

Continued, and growing, co-operation between the parishes in Sanderstead, Riddlesdown and Hamsey Green is at the heart of the agreement, with each parish being able to use the others’ buildings and facilities if required.

The future management of St Edmund’s Caring Group will be the subject of separate discussions.

We are getting on with both the formal and practical aspects of the transfer. We hope to be able to complete the practical aspects sooner than the formal legal ones, which (this being the Church of England!) are inevitably going to take some time. The PCC  agreementlegislates for this eventuality.

I am convinced that this is the best solution for the Mission of the Church in the wider area and,specifically, for our Mission in the parish of Sanderstead, despite the restrictions caused by COVID-19.

Canon Martin Greenfield, Rector
