At Sutton Vineyard we believe that when we pray, God hears us - we’re starting a conversation with the creator of the universe. 

When we pray, we partner with God to seek His kingdom! But Christians don’t necessarily find prayer easy and so often we fail to prioritise it.

We know we need a relationship with God, but we don't spend time talking to him or claiming his promises.

We have a number of different opportunities to learn and grow in prayer, both as individuals and together as a church.


The prayer room @ The dolphin

Is a Local House of Prayer hosted by Sutton Vineyard. It is available 24 hours a day for anyone and everyone to meet God and soak in his presence. Throughout the year we will have 24-7 weeks of prayer, monthly themes and so much more.

The prayer and discernment forum

The PDF meets together once a month to practise waiting on God and following His leading. We therefore have no set agenda and are learning to listen and discern the different ways in which God speaks to us. It's always exciting to see what is on God's agenda.

When: 8th July, 23rd September, 28th October, 25th November, 23rd December

Creative Prayer Group

A group where people can explore God through creativity using any type of medium be it drawing, painting, needlecraft, poetry, creative writing, or anything else! No experience necessary, just a desire to explore your faith in a creative way. Bring along your own project to work on, or come along to see what others are doing and take it from there.

24-7 Prayer

24-7 Prayer

24-7 Prayer - Local house of prayer

During 2017, we were inspired by the 24-7 Prayer Movement - - to seek God for a special prayer space for our town.

Sutton Vineyard were led by God to take on the old Dolphin pub in the centre of Sutton. We believe God has given the gift of this place to all of the churches in Sutton and the surrounding area, to help us prioritise prayer. 

The Dolphin, formally a pub with a less-than positive past, has been transformed into a place of community, outreach, prayer and numerous other ministries. As part of the renovations, the back room of this pub has physically and spiritually become a place for anyone and everyone to meet God and soak up His presence.

We want the prayer room to support the rhythm of prayer within the churches of Sutton. A place to plug in and charge up all the groups we are a part of, missions we lead and communities we contribute to and give it all back to God.

We want the prayer room to bring those who do not know God to meet and engage with Him in a way they may not have been exposed to before. A  place set aside to offer sanctuary and acceptance. Our prayer is that relationships are formed and built in this space, in God’s presence.

We'd love to hear your stories of how God meets with you there - please do get in touch
