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.
MONTY'S is a charity run mainly by volunteers (with support from St Mary’s Church Sholing), and we're always looking for new volunteers - can you help? Together we host groups for children, young people, families, older people and others (with special events for the holidays).
