We were thrilled to be given such a warm welcome into the Sutton Team, St. Helen's, on the 9th August. Bishop Paul and Archdeacon Roger gave great encouragement to all of us as we embark on a new chapter in the life of this faith community. Since then we have immersed ourselves in learning about how to live here and how to minister and thrive in the new culture. We have discovered how very friendly the people of Sutton are, and how direct. You say it how it is and we appreciate that greatly. You also love to laugh, and we all need to do that often. Life is hard for many people around here, and we are very aware of challenges that are faced daily by those who live in the communities around the churches. In these early weeks and months we mainly want to listen and understand better what is needed. To this end we are accepting any invitations that we can to meet you, spend time with you, encourage you and align ourselves with your hopes and dreams. We believe that God is dreaming big dreams for Sutton. The motto of St. Helens 'From the earth comes light' is something we believe the churches may be for the community- a source of light and hope. God's motto, if we take John 3:16 as truth is 'From my heart comes love'. We expect to see love grow here.

As Christians we believe in the love of God, shown to all the world through God sending His one and only Son, Jesus, to free us from our sins which have distanced us as a people from God.
Jesus as our Lord and Saviour teaches us that God is very close to us, and wants dwell within our hearts and be part of our everyday lives. God, through His Holy Spirit that is God's very self, equips us so we can serve Him with joy in this life, and look forward to eternal life through the death and Resurrection of His Son.
If you would like to further your own spiritual journey or learn about the Christian faith, then please contact one of our clergy team through the Parish Office, who will be more than happy to help.
