We’re approaching our Annual Parochial Church Meeting. It’s happening on Wednesday 25th April and is a time for celebrating and giving thanks for all that God has been doing in the life of our community over the last twelve months, and we’ll also be taking some time to think about what the future of Sunnyside [...]
This Saturday (31st March), we’d love to see you at Messy Easter. Sandwiched in between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, you’ll find all the usual ingredients of Messy Church but with an added Easter flavour. There will be craft activities, creative ways to pray and space to catch up with old friends and make new [...]

Easter is the perfect time to reflect on the different stages of life and faith that we travel through as we join with Jesus throughout the different days of Holy Week. We’d really encourage you to [...]

We’re so sorry and had been [...]
We have just begun Lent, a season of preparation before the celebration of Easter Sunday. Many people will have begun some sort of fasting or discipline to follow for the next forty days, whether it’s saying goodbye to chocolate and coffee or trying to practice a more generous way of life, Lent is a perfect [...]

They visited us again in July 2015 and about 40 of us shared a lunch in the Mitchells’ garden, listening intently afterwards to how that challenge was working [...]
