Welcome to the parish of St Matthew and St Wilfrid Sunderland please go to our website to find out more about us at

The parish of Saint Matthew's and Saint Wilfrid's Sunderland is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of Durham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our PSO (More details in the link below). 

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

Sunday morning Worship at St Wilfrid's takes a variety of formats. Generally speaking 1st and 3rd Sundays are Holy Communion, 2nd Sundays are Service of the Word, 4th Sundays are All-age Worship and where there is a 5th Sunday we try to vary our style. All of our services are family orientated and child friendly, and we welcome visitors to continue fellowship with us over coffee after the service.
