Sundays and Weekday Parent and Toddler Groups


At Hope Church Sutton we want all of the children to feel fully part of the church as well as having age-specific teaching to help them know Jesus and live for him in their everyday lives.

Each week at our 10:30am Sunday church service, children of all ages start the service with the adults so they get to experience an all-age church. After approximately 10 minutes the children go out to their age specific groups. For children aged 0-4 (birth to pre-school) we have our 'Hope Tots' group. Every couple of months we also have special all-age church services which are shorter and designed to engage the children as well as the adults.

Each of our Sunday children's groups will:

  • Have age-specific Bible teaching which aims at both understanding and applying it to their everyday lives

  • Sing child-friendly worship songs

  • Play age-specific games and crafts

Safe Guarding:

  • We are careful to keep to government recommended adult-to-child ratios in all of our children's groups.

  • All of our children's leaders have been fully DBS checked with the government's child protection regulation body and follow the Co-Mission Safeguarding Policy.

All children are welcome!

If you have any questions about the programmes or want to know more about bringing your kids along on a Sunday then please contact us.


Dads and Tots

Goodfathers is a monthly group for dads with pre-school kids to come to meet for play with games and toys and have lots of fun (and coffee and bacon sarnies). All dads are welcome, be they from a church or not. You don't need to sign-up - just come along. Our sessions are very friendly, relaxed and informal - we simply play and chat (and mum's get the morning off!)

It runs on the first Saturday of every month from 9am - 10.30am.

We meet near Sutton Town Centre at Robin Hood Junior School, Thorncroft Road, SM1 1RL (map link here). There is free car parking available in the school playground.

Children’s snacks, tea, coffee and bacon rolls are provided.

The cost is £2 per dad.
