Our weekly Sunday morning Communion service takes the form of a Sung Eucharist. We seek to hold together the best of Anglican tradition with a relaxed and welcoming approach. Many different nationalities are represented among our worshipping community. At present there is no Sunday School, but children's activities/material is provided, to help parents and children together to engage with the Bible and the Church year.

FEAST

Occuring
Every Sunday at for 45 mins
Venue
Sunderland Minster
Address
High Street West Sunderland, SR1 3ET, United Kingdom

This informal service runs throughout most of the year, but takes a break in August. We begin, together, for singing and to hear the Bible (often presented in dramatic form) before choosing from a range of activities - quiet reflection, craft, Bible study in English or in Farsi. We then come back together, to share what we have done and learned, and some weeks we end with eating a simple lunch together.
