Join with us for a day of prayer and fasting on Thursday 19th January, 9am-9pm at Christ Church URC, School Street, Sudbury. The purpose of the day is to take time to listen to God and draw aside to seek His face and His guidance in our own lives for the year ahead.

Why do we fast?

Last Sunday Andrew spoke about ‘the kind of fasting that pleases God’. You can listen again on our church website or download his notes here.

Fasting is voluntarily going without food, or any other regularly enjoyed, good gift from God for the sake of a spiritual purpose. Please take a couple of minutes to download and read our guidelines to get the most out of your day.

When God’s people fast with a proper biblical motive – seeking his face, not his hand – with a humble and contrite spirit, he will hear from Heaven and heal our lives, churches and communities.

What will the day look like?

The day is made up of led sessions and times of quiet reflection and prayer. The programme has been designed so that you can come during the day at times that suit you. The only thing we ask is that you come and go quietly so as not to disturb others.

We look foward to spending time with you in His presence.





Join us on Saturday 18 December from 10:45am to bless the people of Sudbury.

As part of being an outward-focused church, we will be out in Market Hill, Sudbury with our SVV gazebo giving away hundreds of free mince pies to Christmas shoppers. It’s a fun way to serve others and show a small act of God’s kindness in a busy, stressful period.

It only needs and hour and half of your time. For those able to help set up and give away, we’ll gather at 11.ooam in the market place. What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to offer small acts of kindness in Jesus’ name?






For our next Singles’ Lunch we will be doing a something a little different.

Join us for a Christmas bowing extravaganza and a bite to eat at Strikes in Sudbury on Sunday 4 December at 12:30pm.

We welcome singles of all circumstances and ages. Children are also welcome!

If you would like to join us simply sign up at the Welocme point on Sunday morning. For more detail speak to Katherine Mills or Karen Naylor on Sunday morning or contact the church office, call: 01787 377670 or email
