We are a friendly and inclusive church, welcoming all ages and backgrounds to our worship. We serve the area of Farringdon, Lakeside (Gilley Law) and East and Middle Herrington, on the southwest edge of Sunderland. We believe that worship is for all ages, and so children of all ages are welcome and fully included in all services, rather than being segregated in a Sunday school. We are here to serve the whole parish, of any faith or none, in any way we can.

We have a full programme of worship, including the Eucharist on Sundays and weekdays, and morning and evening prayer each day.  We also celebrate the Eucharist in the wider parish, at Emblehope House (Farringdon), Amalfi Tower (Lakeside) and Oakfield Court (East Herrington).
