At the beginning of 2013 the Church was awarded an Eco-Congregation
plaque in recognition of the work it had done over the previous year in
meeting the key criteria for the national scheme. Eco-congregation is a
scheme to help churches demonstrate that the gospel is good news for
God's earth. It is about incorporating the biblical ethic of
environmental stewardship into the spiritual values, practical action
and community involvement of church congregation.
We are a Fairtrade church. The website is www.sudburyfairtrade.org.uk.

Just what is Messy Church?
Messy Church is a form of church where families can have fun together, through crafts and other activities. Christ-centred, it is for all ages, and based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. Messy Church is supported, enabled and resourced by the Bible Reading Fellowship.
Our first session of Messy Church at St John's under the leadership of Rev Ruth Ridge will take place on Sunday 24th November, 4:00pm - 6:00pm with a Christmas theme! For further information, please phone Rev Ruth Ridge. Tel: 0744 7091182.
We have a strong and dedicated Choir who enhance our worship on a weekly basis, but also sing at District events and services. Rehearsals take place on Friday evenings, starting at 7:30pm.
We are active members of Churches Together in Sudbury and District. For many years the churches in the Sudbury area have been actively sharing and working together in a variety of ways so that the Good News that God loves us all may be shared with everybody. Members from out church have, over the years, been involved in dramatic presentations of the Easter story, in playing "I Spy Easter", in being part of a prayer support for Town Pastors, in helping with Kettle and Fish [a weekly Christian cafe held on market day], setting up, serving, running a Fairtrade shop and clearing away, and hosting prayer breakfasts and WPCU lunches.
