Churches Together in Sudbury

Churches Together Open Forum

Four times a year, people from local churches gather for an “Open Forum” where we have a speaker on a topic of local, national or international importance and have an opportunity to ask questions. We also share news of our churches. Any essential business is usually very brief. The next takes place during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and is on Thursday 25th January 2024  at St John's Methodist.

The speaker will be  Rev Jim Stewart’s whose subject will be “God and the Climate”.

The talk will take up the question of what Christians bring to the table in discussions of climate change and report briefly on the way Christian Aid address the challenges. It will also touch on our own personal discipleship in a challenging world.

Everyone is welcome to the Forum so please join us at 7.00 for 7.30 pm in this Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

These meetings are open to everyone: do please come along if you can, and encourage others from your church to do so.
