Welcome from the minister
Welcome to Sunderland Evangelical Presbyterian Church. We are here to serve the Lord and you. Whether you go to church or not we would enjoy hearing from you and sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. It is hard to see beyond our present circumstances, yet it is vital we do. The timeless and unchanging God who created all things has revealed Himself to us through creation, Scripture, and His Son, Jesus. He is a wonderful God of grace, mercy, love, justice, compassion, wisdom, power, holiness, goodness, and truth — and that is just to begin describing Father, Son and Spirit. To know Him is to know peace, joy, happiness, and eternal life. Join us for worship, join us to share together in the abounding goodness of the Lord.
Committed to the glory of God through faithful worship, discipleship, and evangelism.
When thinking of the Reformation, the tendency is to think of the wonderful doctrine of justification by faith alone. However, the Reformation was first about the recovery of the worship of God. We are committed to seeking His glory through worship that is directed by God Himself, mediated through the Son, and exercised in the Spirit.
Christians are not saved from sin as an end in itself, but are saved from sin to the glory of God. Our commitment is to nurture and guide Jesus’ sheep into a full-orbed Christ-likeness through the ministry of Word, sacrament and prayer in order that they might reflect the glory of God in every aspect of their lives.
We desire to see the glory of God through the growth of His Kingdom on earth. As such we are committed to the growth of the church through outreach. Our goal is to communicate Jesus Christ in all His glory through relationships, events, meals, and friendship.
Every Wednesday 19:30-20:30
Meeting weekly. We study the book of Acts, discuss it, pray together, and sing. We finish off with a lovely cup of tea and a sweet treat. Please visit us.
We are aiming to start public worship soon. Once we start we will be meeting twice each Sunday. We would love to see you at one of our services.
Prayer for Sunderland
Pray without ceasing
We are regularly praying for this city. The Lord has blessed it in centuries past and we believe He is more than able to bless it again. Would you like to join us?
You will find here dates for our regular meetings and any upcoming events in the life of the church.
How should the Church be organised, how does it grow, and what does it do?
The Architecture of the Church
How should the Church be organised, how does it grow, and what does it do? It is to these questions that God has spoken in the Acts of the Apostles. Acts serves as a blueprint for the life of the Church and we are thrilled to grow together as we study it together.
