As a congregation we draw on four vital Christian traditions:

 

  • As part of the United Reformed Church, we are a church of the Reformation. We trace our origins to this 16th Century renewal of the Church with its commitment to "Ecclesia reformata semper reformanda — the Church reformed and always reforming."

 

  • As part of the Methodist Church, we belong to the tradition within the church that believes the Christian Gospel is for all. Our roots are within the Church of England where our founder, John Wesley, was an ordained priest.

 

  • Our desire to be "an open minded church" comes of a liberal tradition of faith — one which is open, tolerant and intellectually critical.

 

  • Our membership of Churches Uniting in Central Sutton and our existence as a united congregation are signs of our commitment to the ecumenical movement.
