Read about our registered charity SPACE - an initiative to bring new life to the Suckley community by providing 21st century facilities within the large well situated church building, offering this scattered rural village a much needed active hub, useful to all, including our adjacent primary school. This will create opportunities to bring people together and strengthen our community.
Through wars, disease and pandemics Suckley lives have been challenged, and our church provides a place of peace that serves to remind us that through it all, God never changes.
