Welcome to the Sacred Heart Wimbledon

The Sacred Heart Church, in Wimbledon, a Roman Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Southwark, and until recently served by the Jesuits of the British Province, welcomes you to our website. As one of the largest parishes in England, we hope this site highlights the dynamic community that has been a place of worship for over a century.
