Worship Circle: Sunday 7th October, 11th November, 9th December, 7pm at the Vineyard Centre

Whether you’re just learning or an experienced musician, come and improve your skills and learn from one another.

We all have different talents and skill strengths. If yours is musical, then this is for you. It can be difficult to know how to get involved with music at church, so this is an open door for anyone who would like to grow in this area and increase their ability in playing an instrument or singing.

We’ll be using chord sheets, so you don’t need to be able to read music. What you’ll need is a good ear for music (to hear tuning), a passion to learn, your own instrument and a music stand (if you’ve got one). If your instrument won’t work without amplification, then please bring your own amp if you can. If you have any questions, please speak to Emma Stewart-Darling.


Exploring is good. We’re built for it. Explore more about life, faith and meaning with Alpha.

Alpha is a FREE course exploring the Christian faith, each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. There is also the opportunity to ask questions and share your point of view; whether you’re a Christian or not.

Our next course runs for 8 weeks from Wednesday 19 September, 7:30pm, Vineyard Centre.

Join others like yourself and discover the possibilities of a life less ordinary.

Find out more about Alpha and book your place.

A time for men to connect!

We know that weekends are a valuable time for men, so we meet on the 1st Saturday of each month, from 9am finishing around 10am. This means there’s still time to wash the car, cut the lawn, go on that obligatory shopping trip, plus those other Saturday duties that befall us blokes.

Our next breakfast will be on Saturday 1 September at the Grover & Alan (Wetherspoon’s), North Street, Sudbury.

If you have never been before or new to the church, we would love to see you!

Dads feel free to bring your children.

See you there!
