NEWS FROM THE PARISH
Our gospel reading this week is the famous parable of the Good Samaritan (we did a sketch a number of years ago on the Good Sam Harrington and have been confused ever since!). In answer to the question who is my neighbour the famous shocking story unfolds. One of the great community values here in St.Helens, is neighbourliness, looking out for others. People say it’s not like it used to be, but nevertheless folks around here do care and are aware of each other’s needs far more than we have experienced further south! Being a good neighbour is about going the extra mile and caring for others even at the expense of ourselves. This speaks far more loudly to people than any number of services and sermons. When we are unconditionally loved, something shifts and changes in the heart and mind of the person receiving the care. We’d love to hear of your creative ways of being good neighbours and how we can encourage an even more loving, God centred neighbourliness in Sutton.
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.
