Community and Outreach
Serving the local community around Christ Church is a key part of our mission and we are constantly seeking ways in which to fulfill this.
The church is open every Wednesday, all year round, between 9am and 1pm. Everyone is welcome to come into the church during this time. Tea and coffee are served. At 11:30am - 12pm each week there will be a midday prayer or communion service. A light lunch is served from 12:15pm-1pm. There is usually a member of the clergy team available if you wish to talk to them specifically. On the first Wednesday of the month we have an arts and craft morning you are welcome to join in with if you wish (free).
The church has an enclosed garden area behind it with a playground for young children. Members of the public are very welcome to use this space at their own risk when it is not in use for church activities. Please be aware that it is used every weekday morning during termtime.
Sutton South Hello
Sutton South Hello is a community group, hosted at Christ Church but built up by local residents, councillors, residents’ associations, churches, Neighbourhood Watch and the local police. It was started in response to awareness that Sutton South has a very high proportion of older people, many living alone. The overall aim is to establish a friendly and welcoming place where people can come to meet others living nearby and find out where local activities were taking place and where to go for advice.
