Connect Conversations

What is a Connect Conversation?

A catalyst bringing together members of Christian churches, organisations, Sunderland City Council, schools within Sunderland and many other agencies to engage in a conversation about a particular key issue such as youth work, refugees and asylum seekers and poverty.  


How does it work?

During a conversation we will talk about a key issue and look at:

  • Existing gaps/needs

    • Can need be identified in a certain area of the city or within a community itself?

  • Current solutions

    • who is doing what, where and with whom?

  • New opportunities 

    • Have you got an idea of something new to fill a need or a gap?

  • Sharing resources

    • Can you provide people, experience, facilities or perhaps even specialist advice?


We recognise that there is already a lot of activity across the City and we want to map these out to promote awareness and encourage partnerships for mutual and beneficial gain.

Why not start your own conversation with us?
