Sudbury Methodist Church - St John's

Lively church with many weekly activities.  Our worship takes place every Sunday at 10.30 am, and is an opportunity to share with others, praising and thanking God for all He is and does; to listen to His word and to be challenged to respond to all we have heard.



Twice a month there are communion services – in the main service on one Sunday in the month and at 11 am on the third Wednesday of the month.

There is a choir which helps to lead the music and we have a number of worship leaders who take part in the services.  Spark Club [Junior Church] runs at the same time as the Sunday morning service most Sundays.

Messy Church takes place every two months, usually the second Sunday of the month  4:00pm - 6:00pm with our latest session on Sunday 10th February.  The next session at St John's will be on 7th April 2019. Our Christmas session took place on Sunday 9th December, led by Rev Ruth Ridge.

The first session of the new Methodist Church year took place on Sunday 30th September with the theme of Creation.  Here is the special Messy Church table cloth we made, and the St John's Prayer Tree upon which anyone can hang leaves with their prayer requests.
