St Mary’s Church Hampton is a growing, vibrant Evangelical Charismatic Church in South West London. Our vision statement is ‘Reaching every corner of Hampton with the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.’ One of our core values is to be an ‘Apostolic’ church which passes faith on to the next generation and we prioritise Children’s and Families work.

MTV Youth Hampton was founded as a community youth club for 8-18 year olds in 2011 following local concerns about a lack of activities and opportunities for children and young people in Hampton. MTV has developed a strong reputation for delivering excellent youth work that significantly improves young people’s physical, mental, and emotional health, and their life opportunities.
