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 May 2021:

Dear Friends in the parish and beyond,

Fiona was saying recently that she enjoys looking at clouds and knows all the different types of cloud. I could readily understand that as I love skies, whether in paintings or in reality. Of course, they are constantly changing, always different, but it’s really their greatness that amazes me, how huge and marvellous they are. They remind me how small and insignificant I am. And yet as Christians we can say, “My Father made that!” and marvel that He cares for us in just the same way as that magnificent sky I am looking at.
Psalm 8 in the Bible says:
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him?”
We are tiny and insignificant, and yet, through Jesus, we can be God’s children and call this enormous God “Father”.
WOW!
With best wishes,
Chris
