Sunderland is a true gem of the North East with an incredible history and even more amazing people! We love this city and the awesome people in it and so excited to be doing church right in the heart of the town centre, packed full of families, students, young professionals and everyone else. We just know you’ll feel right at home.

We are one of many great pentecostal churches in Sunderland with a big heart to connect each and every person to the life changing message of Jesus Christ through the power of God’s community, His Church.

Our services are full of life with great worship, inspiring and practical preaching and an exciting programme for children and youth. Plus we’ve got midweek groups and loads going on for everyone in Sunderland! To see full details about our up coming events, simply visit the Latest section on this page.

Come and join us this Sunday at 10:30am, Tenon House, Ferryboat Lane (SR5 3JN).

If you’re looking to use public transport from the city centre, we recommend Stagecoach’s Number 3 Bus which leaves at 9:33am from John St and arrives in Castletown at 9:50am to give you plenty of time to make the 5 minute walk from the bus stop to the building and grab a coffee before the service. It’s just £3.70 for a day saver ticket. PLUS from 16th September-14th October, we have our Student Bus Stop Crew manning the Royal Courts and John St bus stop to help you find us easily.

We hope you can join us at one of our services soon!
