River Church Sutton


Being part of a small group is a great way to develop friendships and grow in your faith.

Creative Worship
Our amazing God is THE creator, and having made us all in his image and likeness, he has made us all creative too! Our aim each week is to enjoy worshiping God through our different creative outlets. Whether you like drawing, painting, knitting, needlework, poetry or music, or simply sitting and being in his presence, we join each other to use our creative abilities to reflect our worship. Some weeks may have a more structured meeting, focussing on a particular scripture or theme, other weeks we will simply enjoy listening to worship music whilst undergoing our individual or joint craft activities. No skills or experience necessary. This isn't about 'perfect drawings' only heartfelt expressions of our time with the living God. This is a great opportunity to step out of our comfort zones, not only in our personal worship, but also by using our creative gifts to bless the wider church body - you never know how a simple picture or word could touch the heart of another member of our congregation!

Katie and Stuart's life group
Hello everyone, we are Stuart and Katie. Our heart is to love and care for our brothers and sisters in the church, and to provide a safe place to grow in faith. Our focus is on supporting each other with prayer and encouragement, we will also be starting each call with sharing testimonies of God's goodness to us and a time of sung worship using screenshared worship songs with lyrics from YouTube. We'll then have a time of Bible study together (we're currently going through our personal heroes of faith) We'd love for anyone to join us, please do speak to either of us to get the zoom link. We also have a group whatsApp, where we can encourage each other daily.

Sensible Shoes book club
We are starting a new book and would love you to join us! From March, the book club will be studying Awake: Paying attention to what matters most in a world that's pulling you apart. In Awake, author Anjuli Paschall reminds us that God's presence isn't 'out there', but instead, his presence is with us in all we do. Awake is an invitation to wake up to the love of God, a love that is always with us, always pursuing us and always offering us more of the abundant life we've been longing for. It covers subjects such as meaning, acceptance, worth, humility, hope, miracles, intimacy, authority, power and freedom. Here is a link for more information and where to buy the book: https://www.eden.co.uk/christian-books/personal-life/christian-books-for-women/awake-paying-attention-to-what-matters-most-in-a-world-thats-pulling-you-apart/ The book club usually meets on the third Sunday of the month, at 8pm in the coffee shop. As this date in March is Mother's Day, we are postponing until 26 March - but for that month only. (So the next one after that will be 16 April.) If you have any further questions please do speak to or email Claire Musters (cmusters@icloud.com).

The Engine Room
The Engine Room's purpose is to provide prayer sessions for those who require more time, and or, a confidential space to talk and pray about issues that are important to them. The Engine Room will be drawing on the living free principles. We will provide a male member of the prayer team when this is appropriate. There will be two people praying with you at each session. How do I book a slot? Sessions are booked by emailing the prayer@riverchurchsutton.org email address on our website.
