Welcome to the All Saints Putney. The Parish of Putney comprises two churches, St. Mary’s on Putney Bridge and All Saints’ on Putney Common just off the Lower Richmond Road.
We are a very lively parish in the liberal catholic tradition but made up of people of many different styles. We aim to be a place of spiritual, intellectual and emotional refreshment.
We seek to give people the chance to learn and grow in their faith through challenging sermons and a variety of education courses.
The Annual Parish Christmas Fair was, once again, a roaring success (Ho, Ho, Ho!). Thanks to everyone who helped.
We are an inclusive church that will give a warm welcome to everyone. We are a Christian family made up of all sorts and that’s the way we like it. I hope you will get the chance to visit us soon and find out for yourself. For more information, please see About Us
