School Celebration Sunday

 

 

On Sunday 25th June in our 11am service we are looking forward to sharing our worship with children, parents, staff and governors from St Matthew’s Primary School.  We enjoy close links with the school and are delighted that we can welcome them and especially families of children who are looking forward to joining Receptionin September to this special service.

A gesture of love . . .

This week, along with different places of worship across the area, we were given a red rose by a group of local Muslims who were seeking to show solidarity with others in our community following the shocking events of last weekend.  In a thoughtful and gracious letter they expressed their opposition to terrorism in the name of religion and described how ‘all of us’ need to do whatever we can to work against such extremism.  They reminded us that the major ‘weapon’ which we all have at our disposal is love.

We are really grateful for their very practical demonstration of love in action and words and wish them well.

Thy Kingdom Come

Team Service on Sunday 5th February

In order to celebrate THiS Team (the Tolworth Hook & Surbiton Team Ministry) we are having an all-age Team Service at St Paul’s Hook at 10am on Sunday 5th February.  There will be NO services at St Matthew’s on that day to ensure that the Team service is well supported.  If you would prefer you could attend a Communion Service at St Paul’s at 8.30am on the same day.
