SUNDAY SERVICES

WHEN WE MEET

We now meet in person every Sunday at 10:30am which is also streamed online.
Our services last around an hour each. We expect a mix of Christians and people who wouldn't call themselves Christians but are open-minded, so you are very welcome if you belong to either group!

 
WHERE WE MEET

We meet at Sutton Grammar School, Sutton SM1 4AE. By public transport you can take several different buses or we're a ten minute walk from Sutton mainline train station. Parking is available within the school site, enter through the Greyhound Road entrance, or in the bays outside.

The door to enter will be marked by our flags and a steward. Upon entry there will be hand sanitising and a one way system. You will also be asked to write down your name and email for track and trace reasons (details will be deleted after three weeks). 

We encourage everyone to wear a mask inside the building, except children or those exempt. We will observe one meter social distancing for the main body of the congregation. For those who are vulnerable or unvaccinated we will provide an area of the church with two meter social distancing.

WHAT WE DO

In our church services we'll have music, prayers, a Bible reading and a talk about the passage. We believe that the Bible is God's Word for people today, so we always try to explain what it says in ways we can all understand and relate to. Due to COVID-19, we will sing with masks inside the church and outside without masks. If you are self-isolating or have any symptoms of Covid; cough, sore throat, temperature, breathlessness, please stay at home and join us virtually.

 
CHILDREN

Primary aged children will have their own activity in one group in the garden (weather dependent). We want to encourage you to join us and not worry when your child makes noise and gets restless! There will be an overflow room for those who really need a temporary timeout, however we really do want to make these services accessible to all ages (including adults!) and so want to encourage you to persist with children sitting through the whole service. 

Check our children's pages to find out more about different age groups:
