Coffee Time after the Sunday Service
After our Easter Sunday service, we will once again try to simulate coffee time after church where we can chat to other people not in our groups. We will have on big Zoom meeting for everybody at church and we will put you into smaller groups of four to chat together for 10 mins. Then we'll mix those groups for a further 10 mins. If there are others you would like to speak to, then we encourage you to get in touch, I'm sure they would appreciate it.

Good Friday and Easter Sunday
Easter Sunday is next week (12th April) and we would love you to invite friends and family to watch our Easter Sunday service via our YouTube channel at 10am. Why not send them an email or a WhatsApp to invite them to join us? It's a great opportunity for people stuck at home to hear the gospel clearly explained.
Here is a link to a flyer for the event which can be used as an invitation.
Here is the YouTube link again (or ask them to search for "Hope Church Sutton" on the YouTube homepage). https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC03VxdzXMq4GdOYu9FKAe7g
On Good Friday we'll have a special service at 10am on the YouTube channel so do tune in then
We plan to start an online ZoomChristianity Explored course on Tuesday 21 April. Christianity Explored is a seven week course introducing the basics of the Christian faith to anyone who is not a Christian or for Christians who want to go back over the basics. There is a video followed by open questions and discussion. It's a brilliant course for anyone with an open mind.
If you, or someone you know, would like to join, please email us at email@example.com

Resource Packs for Our Community
Thank you for donating and mobilising! Thanks to you (and timely reinforcements from Grace Church Worcester Park) we now have everything we need for the resource packs. They are almost ready to be delivered to the council, then to be distributed to families in need. We will send out some pictures so you can see the finished products. Let's keep praying for the most vulnerable in our community.
The children's groups will be running on Zoom to the following timetable:
Hope Tots join Hope Hoppers @ 10am every Monday (see below)
Hope Kids @ 3.30pm every Wednesday
Hope Juniors @ 4.30pm every Wednesday
IMPORTANT: For safeguarding reasons, in order to join these groups you need to email Tim to let him know you are happy for your child to be in the meeting. He will then send you a link to the meeting. All children need this explicit permission.
Both youth groups will continue meeting on Fridays using Zoom.
Zoom meeting details will be emailed directly to youth parents. If you did not receive these details, please contact David Cornish.
Hope Hoppers ran successfully online on Monday 23rd and is available to watch on our YouTube channel at 10am.
Next week Hope Hoppers will be running on Zoom rather than YouTube so there can be more interaction for the children and parents. Zoom meeting details will appear on this page later in the week.
Hope Hoppers is running for both Hope Hoppers regulars and Hope Tots combined.
Sadly the following events have been cancelled due to the coronavirus:
Church Day Away
Youth Weekend Away
You will be due full refunds if you've already paid for any of these.
Social Media #hopefromhome
Join our #hopefromhome movement on social media!
As people it would be great for us to still be seeing pictures of you/your family/housemates with short testimonies and updates of our greater hope and how your faith has been challenged or encouraged at this time. This is also a great opportunity for the rest of the world to see gospel truth and hope, rather than just fear and cynicism.
Do please send Vicky Hillman pictures that you'd be happy for us to use on social media - as well as short testimonies of God's grace and goodness at this time. No need for amazing professional pictures - a selfie of the ‘real life’ you will do!
