WELCOME TO SUTTON CHRISTIAN CENTRE
Welcome to the website of Sutton Christian Centre, in the London Borough of Sutton. We hope that you will find the site helpful and that you find the information you’re looking for.
We have Sunday live streamed meetings and midweek groups, held in our church building in Tate Road and also on Zoom while restrictions apply, but more importantly Sutton Christian Centre is about relationships… our relationship with God and friendship with each other. We aim to encourage and build people up to equip them for ministry and our ambition is to be a resource to other churches and those in need in our community – to shine God’s love into our society.
Sutton Christian Centre is a Pentecostal church in fellowship with the Assemblies of God in Great Britain and Ireland. We are also members of the Connections UK group of churches and the Evangelical Alliance, and have links with the local network of churches in Sutton, Surrey.
I am New!
If you are new to our church then we hope you will look around our website to find out more about us. Please stay and get to know us.
A number of people lead activities throughout the week at SCC. You can meet some of our team here…
Vision & Values
Find out what we believe and what we value.
SCC runs a number of groups for 0 – 11 year olds.
A crèche is provided during our morning Communion services. This is for babies and toddlers aged 0-3 years only. Click here to download our ‘Welcome to Creche’ leaflet.
Beginners is the Sunday School for 3-5 year olds, and includes praying, singing, a Bible-based story and activity. It is designed to help each child to gain an understanding of the things of God.
On reaching the grand old age of 5, the children are “promoted” to King’s Club.
There is no Beginners on our Fanmily Service Sundays.
10.10-11.45am Sundays King’s Club is for the 4-11s (Reception – Year 6) and is a lively mixture of games and quizzes, crafts and memory verses, worship and teaching. Our aim is to help children become active in all aspects of their faith (contact the Church Office for more information and our vision statement “Activ-8”).
A high priority is given to small group work where children can ask questions, discuss, pray together and learn, in an age-appropriate way.
King’s Club takes place in the sports hall of Homefield School, just across the road from the church and children are very carefully led there and back.
Tate Road Tots
10.00 to 11.30am Tuesdays in term time
Tate Road Tots is a Parent and Toddler group, which is affiliated to the charity of Bliss. We welcome all parents and toddlers, including those who have spent time in neonatal units. Cost is just £2 per family, refreshments included. If you would like to know more, please email Clare at [email protected] or call us on 020 8642 8117.
We put a high priority on child protection and health and safety at Sutton Christian Centre. Our workers are police-checked and have received training in child protection matters (or are currently undergoing training/checks). A copy of our Child Protection Policy is available on request.
The Zone is for 11-15 year olds, providing a valuable bridge from King’s Club into Transit and the main church.
The Zone staff work hard to make sure that the Zoners in their care establish and develop a personal relationship with God.
Legacy is the weekly meeting for young people of 11+years to get to know God in a relevant way. There’s a tuck shop, games, teaching….and plenty of time for getting to know each other through activities on the night.
LEGACY and the ZONE share a FACEBOOK page, which you can jump to, by clicking HERE!
8-10pm alternate Tuesdays
Our church meets in small groups in homes around the borough. These Connect Groups are an expression of the life of the church and focus on relationships, providing a safe environment to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ, each other, and in relating to our community.
Sutton’s Health and Prayer Evening (S.H.A.P.E.) aims to encourage and support members as they try to lose weight. The afternoon involves prayer, as well as getting on the scales!
SCC Men is the group for the men in the church. In the past we have played table tennis together, walked together…and eaten together! Please watch this space for news of further events for the men.
Serving, leading and equipping women to realise their potential and be actively involved in the life of Sutton Christian Centre.
SCC Ladies has developed different interest groups, such as card making, meeting for meals, etc., which enable the women of our church to develop relationships with each other and to help them reach out to those who don’t yet know God personally. These groups feed into the main SCC:Ladies events which have a definite spiritual focus. Again, watch this space for news of future events.
