MONTY'S is a creative hub at the heart of our neighbourhood. The idea is to be a place which belongs to our whole community here in Sholing/Thornhill, a place where we can meet up, share life, get active, make friends, learn skills, 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.

Some of our activities charge a small fee, but let us know if this is a problem, and we may be able to reduce the fee - as our goal is for everyone in our community to be included at Monty’s. If you'd like to join in with any of our groups/activities, just pop in sometime, or get in touch via the contact page. We look forward to hearing from you!
