mission state

Welcome to this website! We are two churches in East Hull and then out into the East Riding a little. As part of the Church of England, our churches lie in parishes, which is the area round the church. St Andrew’s Parish is Sutton Park but also part of South Bransholme, while St Peter’s is in Wawne but includes all of North Bransholme and Kingswood in the parish. But wherever you live, in Hull, Wawne or beyond, you are welcome to try out either one of our churches and see whether it is right for you. St Andrew’s is a modern building with a congregation of mixed ages, while St Peter’s is a beautiful old building (we celebrated 900 years in 2015!) with a congregation mostly of retired people, but looking to widen the age range!

What are we here for? To think about the big questions in life (we do ask lots of questions!), to get to know Jesus better, and to encourage each other in living out our faith. You do not need to have a faith to come along! We hold a variety of services and social events, which you can read more about elsewhere on this website.
As you will see above, our churches’ mission statement is:
.

To make Christ’s love known in the community we serve.

And, by the way, we take Safeguarding very seriously in our churches. A copy of each parish’s Safeguarding Policy is on display at each church. Our Diocesan Safeguarding Officer can be contacted on 01904 699524 or by email:  safeguarding@yorkdiocese.org

Monthly Blog for November 2020:

Dear Friends in the parish and beyond,

A wonderful thing happened a couple of weeks ago, just in our normal day. Kathy and I had gone to North Point shopping centre for Kathy to have an eye test, and then Kathy went into Wilkinson’s while I went back to the car. In Wilko Kathy got to the till to find that when the woman had rung up her purchases, she couldn’t pay as she’d left her purse at home. “No problem,” said the woman behind Kathy, “Let me pay!” Kathy thanked her VERY much and said she’d go straight back to the car to get some money from me. But when she went back to the shop with the money, the woman said, “Please. I’d like to do this for you.” And she wouldn’t accept the money. And the amount? £15 or so!

What a wonderful thing to do for a stranger! It meant so much to us when so many people are grumbling and turned in on themselves at present. And although we have no idea what motivated this young woman, what a marvellous example of Christian love!

Chris 

With best wishes,
Chris
