On 20 May we celebrate Pentecost the birthday of the church, it is now nearly 2000 years old but as fresh and transforming as it has ever been. Our ongoing challenge is to grow the church in faith and size, building on tradition and being open to innovation.
It's been three weeks since we had our APCM and most of you by now will have read the report that we gave at the meeting. We'd really appreciate your thoughts on what was written and the opportunities it poses for us. The paper is being discussed at ministry team and church council level, but we'd like to invite comments from the wider church. Please pray for our churches and their ministry and mission.
Happy Birthday Sutton Churches!
With Love and Prayers
Simon and Louise

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.
