A very warm welcome

Welcome to St Patrick's. We're a friendly Anglican church in the centre of the community of South Wallington. At the heart of our church is the wonderful news that God loves us and has demonstrated that love in the most incredible way through Jesus' life, death and victory over death. That's why our worship of God is heartfelt and church life is geared around reaching out to more and more people with this news - and why we are a church which welcomes everyone.
If you have any questions or would like to chat to us you can see all of our contact details here.
Visitor information to help you get to know more about our church and how you can become involved.
Although we are a church that is active all through the week, Sundays are still our special day when we meet together.

Thank God It's Thursday (TGI Thursday for short) is a group for mums meeting every week during term time - it's a chance for mums to have a bit of a break. TGI is a great opportunity to meet with others to have some time out from the busyness of every day life. There is a varied programme of activities each term including guest speakers, craft mornings, tasting and lots more. There is always time to relax and have a chat over a cup of tea or coffee.

There's a fully staffed creche - you can leave your children there, or join them in the creche for as much of the session as you want.

Sun 17 Nov 2019 10:30am
Time: 10.30am
Where: Church Building
Lasts: just over an hour (at most 1¼ hours)

Our main gathering on a Sunday is this lively and welcoming service, in which we sing songs and hymns, listen to what God is saying to us through the Bible, and pray. It's fine just to come along and see what goes on, or join in as you feel like it (if you've not been in church before and aren't sure what to expect, have a look at our new to church page).

On all but the first Sunday in the month adults and children alike start off together in church, but the children and young people (up to age 14) then go to their own groups after about 15 minutes. There's also a staffed creche running throughout the service, from about 10.15am, for under-3s. You can read more about our childrens' groups.

On the first Sunday each month we have our Family Service (which is a little shorter, about 45 minutes), celebrating the full diversity of our church community by children and adults worshipping together for the whole service. The music and teaching content is intended to be suitable for all, and we expect a bit of noise! The uniformed groups (Scouts, Guides, and so on) also join us for these family services.

On the second Sunday of each month, we also include a celebration of Holy Communion (sharing some bread and wine together as a reminder of Jesus' death), which adds about an extra ten minutes to the service.

The format is informal, but with similar elements to most church services: we'll usually sing and pray together, and hear part of the Bible read and explained. LifeTime often includes some slightly more interactive elements, too: sometimes there will be an opportunity to discuss part of the evening's topic, or some more creative ways of praying or thinking through what we've looked at from the Bible.
