MONTY'S is a creative hub at the heart of our community. It's a space which belongs to our whole community; everyone in our neighbourhood in Sholing/Thornhill . The idea is for this to be an place where we can meet up, share life, get active, make new friends, learn new skills, improve job prospects, get help and advice, and have fun!


MONTY'S is more than just a building - its a community. Our vision is to encourage and enable personal, social and spiritual growth in our community, so we can all enjoy abundant 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.


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?
