    Steve Emerson - Pastoral Assistant


    Hi, my name is Steve, I have joined the Parish of Putney after being head of RE in a secondary school on the sunny South Coast of England near Brighton. I have a particular passion for school chaplaincy and creating creative opportunities for deep personal reflection. I went to the University of Wales, Bangor to study Theology more than a decade ago but in Bangor I discovered two of my favourite things, Theology (of course) and mountaineering. I have pursued mountaineering ever since and I have recently achieved the NGB award known as ‘Mountain Leader’. I have lots of other hobbies and interests including running, cycling and playing the ukulele! I am excited to have arrived in Putney and I am looking forward to meeting people over the year ahead and working together with you in many different ways.

How to get to St Mary’s Church, Putney……….

St Mary’s Church is next to the river at the southern end of Putney Bridge.
It is in a controlled parking zone, so we recommend you come by public transport.

Putney is very well-served by buses, tubes, and the rail network………..

By Bus:  Many bus routes go through Putney. Here are a few useful ones:

From Piccadilly Circus to Putney Common, take a number 22                                                                                                     From Hyde Park Corner to Putney High Street, take a number 14                                                                                             From Oxford Street to Putney High Street, take a number 74.                                                                                                  Other routes include 220, 270, 424, 430, & 485 [stops outside of the church]

By Tube:  Take the District Line to Putney Bridge station on the Wimbledon branch, and then simply walk south over Putney Bridge, (5mins walk) or to East Putney station and walk west along the Upper Richmond Road and then north down Putney High Street to Putney Bridge (15mins walk).

By Rail:  Very frequent trains from London Waterloo, via Clapham Junction, to Putney Rail station. From Putney Rail station there are fairly frequent trains to Richmond, Hounslow and out towards Windsor. Walk north down Putney High Street (5mins walk).
