We believe
in Sunderland

Sunderland Connect Network was established to forge strong connections between churches and communities across Sunderland to help make Sunderland a city we can all be proud of.  We encourage conversations that lead to actions which help tackle some of the challenging issues many people face in our city.

 

We believe in our city, we believe in our people and with everyone working together, we can make Sunderland a city everyone believes in.

ALISON CLARKE, CITY LIFE CHURCH

“THANKS TO AN INITAL CONNECT CONVERSATION WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ESTABLISH A CAP DEBT CENTRE IN SUNDERLAND.  THIS WAS MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE COLLABORATION OF 5 CHURCHES FROM ACROSS THE CITY OF SUNDERLAND WORKING TOGETHER ON A COMMON SENSE OF CALL TO SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITIES"
