New Venue for GWNS 2019/20 season

New Venue for GWNS 2019/20 season

The venue for Saturday nights for the 2019/20 season will be St Richard’s Church Centre, 2 Swallowfield Road, London SE7 7NR. It is near to local buses and Charlton station and will be a comfortable and welcoming venue.

Saturday nights have been wonderfully run at Blackheath and Charlton Baptist Church for many years. Unfortunately, there are problems with the fabric of the building, and the venue can’t be used this year. So, a new venue has been found in the Charlton area at St Richard’s Church Centre, 2 Swallowfield Road, London SE7 7NR. Well equipped and spacious it will provide our guests with comfort and stability.
Buses 177 and 180 are close by as is Charlton Railway station.
