About St Barnabas Church
The Sutton Team Ministry
In 2006 the Sutton Team Ministry was created providing ministerial oversite to St Barnabas, St Nicholas and Christ Church. Each church operates independently with their own Parochial Church Council (PCC), but with a shared clergy and lay ministry team. The Rev Dame Sarah Mullally was appointed the first Team Rector and she was soon joined by Rev P. Mark Pullinger as Team Vicar. Together they developed the Team Ministry and helped each of the three churches discover exciting ways of sharing together in worship and teaching whilst still maintaining their own unique characteristics and styles. Sarah left the team in 2012 when she was appointed Canon at Salisbury Cathedral, and in 2015 she became Bishop of Crediton, a suffragan bishop in the Diocese of Exeter. Mark also moved on in 2015 to become Team Vicar at Merstham and Gatton Team Ministry.
