MONTY'S is a creative hub at the heart of our community, a space which belongs to everyone within the Montague Avenue area in the Sholing/Thornhill neighbourhood of Southampton. The idea is for this to be an place where people in our community can meet up, share life, get active, make new friends, learn new skills, improve job prospects, or get help and advice.

 

MONTY'S is more than just a building; our vision is to enable our shared personal, social and spiritual growth, so we can all enjoy fullness of life within a flourishing neighbourhood. Monty's has a Christian ethos, though people of any faith or none are welcome; our hope is to be an inclusive space of generous hospitality for everyone in our community.

 

MONTY'S is a charity run mainly by volunteers (with support from Oasis Academy Mayfield, and St Mary’s Church Sholing) - and we're always looking for new volunteers - can you help?
