WELCOME

to St Antony, 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.

Cream teas at St Antony's, July 2019 were enjoyed on a sunny day after a rainy start. We enjoyed delicious refreshments, were tested by quizzes and some of us played games as well.

The beginning of a New Year is a good time to "re-boot". There's nothing wrong with saying to God that we've got ourselves into a bit of a bind, and inviting him to help us make a new start.... A very Happy New Year to all.
