We provide Church leaders with support, encouragement and opportunities for learning and collaboration.

​What is Leaders Connect?

We facilitate Leaders Connect which is a group for Christian Ministers and leaders from a variety of Christian traditions, denominations and organisations. 

We meet together for active learning, mutual encouragement, practical support, energetic praying, co-operative working. 

As Christians leaders working in Sunderland, we recognise our common desire to see this City and its people transformed by the love and grace of Jesus Christ. 


We know all Christians have a part to play in sharing the good news of Jesus and we recognise we are strongest when we work together and pray together.

We meet for an hour most Tuesday mornings, except for the first Tuesday of each month, when we have an extended lunch meeting.

'Just to let you know we were inspired by the lunch yesterday. These lunches help us enormously.' Leaders Connect lunch participant, March 2020
