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 July 2021:

Dear Friends in the parish and beyond,

Welcome to Eileen Connolly! She was ordained in York Minster at the end of June, and there will soon be a photo and a bit about her on our website. Eileen comes from Bolton originally and has had previous careers in banking and in teaching. She has moved to Hull to be curate (apprentice vicar) here, so she is finding her way round the city and getting used to a new home while also starting a new career, wearing a dog collar. Quite a change!
Of course, God challenges us all in bigger or smaller ways. It begins with the big challenge of asking him to take charge of our lives, but it certainly doesn’t stop there. In the Bible Jesus is constantly challenging his followers to think differently and to act differently; He’s often asking them to do new things. In my experience He does the same today; if we have invited him to take charge, He gets stuck in, whether we wear dog collars or not, looking at our attitudes, our behaviour and our priorities. Yes, He pushes us for our own good, but it’s not always comfortable. However, it’s certainly exciting!
With best wishes,
