NEWS FROM THE PARISH
Thank you for your prayers for me over the last few weeks, as I (Simon) recover from routine day surgery that took a turn for the worst. My time in the hands of the NHS was a profound realisation of what a gift it is to us in this country, free at the point of need. The Whiston Hospital’s Mission Statement is “to make sure you, the patient, are well informed and cared for to the highest possible standard and our dedicated workforce are committed to ensure you have an excellent patient experience.” I wonder how you would define what we as three churches in Sutton are intent upon achieving? By the time you read this we will have had our vision day and more of that will follow, helping us discern the way forward. One thing is clear that it is our faith as followers of Jesus that should be the driving force and centre of what we do and believe. This is what we consider today in week 2 of our sermon series, that churches that our energised by faith are increasingly on track. They are fed by their acts of worship, they are motivated to serve God and others, living out biblical truths and helping people to grow in their faith and share it. (The Alpha course starts next week and it’s never too late to join.) If you sense your faith needs to grow in the God of the impossible, do ask us to be fellow travellers and encouragers with you in the journey of faith through life.
With Love and Prayers

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.
