Bell Ringers
Sutton St James has a very friendly band of bell ringers.  We ring from 9.55am to 10.25am on Sundays before the morning service which starts at 10.30am. We ring for the Sunday evening service when we can. 

Practice nights are normally on a Wednesday evening from 8.00pm onwards, but it is worth checking before making a special trip as we do have an occasional Wednesday (eg during August) when we do not have six ringers. 

New, novice or seasoned ringers are always made welcome. 

Choir
Sutton St James has a strong musical tradition.  Our choir is very friendly and always welcomes new members. From time to time they combine with other local church choirs for 'special events' and have been invited to sing at Chester Cathedral on a fairly regular basis.

The choir practices almost every Thursday evening throughout the year (in church) from 7.30pm to 9.00/9.30pm. 
On most Sundays they sing at both the 11.00am service and 6.30pm service.

Hob Nob
The Hob Nob club is an informal gathering - open to all.  It normally meets fortnightly on on a Thursday afternoon at 2.30pm in the Church Hall. From time to time the Hob Nob club organizes outings, trips and visits.

Scouts & Guides
 

Saturday Walking Group
Meets monthly for walks o
f  5 to 10 miles, on the second Saturday in the month, starting from the Church car park at 9.30am.

WI  - Women's Institute
Sutton WI meets at St James Church Hall on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm.

We are a really welcoming and cheerful group. Most of our group live in Sutton and Langley but several travel from Macclesfield and we can help with transport if needed. 

We always warmly welcome new members, and suggest you come to a meeting to find out what a local WI Group is like.

For further information, or to have a chat to find out more, including about our events this year, please contact either:
Secretary Maria Rowson 01260 253341 or 
President is Viv Warrington 01260 252530

We look forward to meeting you.

PS We do start with Jerusalem and some of us make great jams and cakes, but we certainly do not stop there!  Read our monthly pages in the local parish news magazines.
