The Parish of St Anne and St Faith Wandsworth is part of the Diocese of Southwark in the Church of England. It was formed in 2008 from the separate parishes of St Anne’s and St Faith’s. Today all our worship and most of our activities are based at St Anne’s Church on St Ann’s Hill.
St Anne’s Church stands between the centre of Wandsworth and Wandsworth Common. Although it is only a stone’s throw from the South Circular it enjoys a quiet setting in spacious grounds.
The parish stretches from the river to Earlsfield Road, from the Town Hall to Spencer Park across the Common. Most of the area is occupied by Victorian housing off all types, but there was considerable new building after the Second World War and new homes are continually being added. Industrial and office blocks line Garrett Lane and surround Wandsworth Town railway station; there are many shops. Our two primary schools, St Anne’s and St Faith’s are just a short walk away.
The population is very mixed as one would expect in modern London. The church congregation reflects the area with a huge range of wealth, ethnicity and culture all coming together.
As well as our regular Sunday services, we run various activities and social events throughout the year. And we’re always looking for people to help out – with everything from fund-raising to web editing. You can find out more about getting involved here, or read our latest newsletter, called ‘Pepperpost’ after our famous Pepperpot-shaped tower.
