Welcome to Sutton Village Church
First of all, thank you for taking time to look at our site.
We are an evangelical fellowship based on Herbert Street, Sutton, St Helens, WA9 3LE (see map below).
Our services are lively and family friendly. They are held in a modern, well furnished space filled with natural light. We are assisted in our services by a Worship team, providing a mixture of Hymns, Songs and Choruses old and new. There is also a Prayer team on hand should you require it. A Crèche is also available during the service. To finish things off, you are welcome to stay behind for refreshments after the service.
In addition to our regular Sunday Services (which start at 11am), we have a wide variety of activities taking place throughout the week. Why not look at our What's on page to see if there is anything that appeals to you. We have a comprehensive and vibrant youth ministry and also many events for the young at heart.
So, please take a look around!

A Brief History
Sutton Village Church was first established in 1884 at 107 Herbert Street, Sutton (land now occupied by part of the current car park). Work commenced on the current building in 1891. The Building was extended in 1910, and the 2 storey extension housing the Kitchen and Sunday School rooms added in 1962. Finally, the Car Park was added in 1980.
Can you tell which bits which? There are many little clues around the building that indicate past changes. Why not have a look at our photo gallery to see how the church has been modernised over the years.
In the last 120 Years, the Church has seen a great many characters, and is fondly regarded in the Community in which it is situated.
Due to the ongoing maintenance and up keeping of an old building, 1999 saw the completion of an extensive refurbishment programme.
Today's facility is spacious, airy and flooded with light. Gone are the old wooden pews, replaced with comfortable seating.
Disabled access is taken care of and a modern kitchen enables greater social interaction.
A facility better equipped to serve our community.
