We believe that the best way to do things is to work together with other people. We can achieve far more together and we have been incredibly blessed to work alongside some great people and organisations here in Sunderland.

Salt and Light

Sunderland Community Church belongs to an international network of Churches called Salt & Light. You can find out more about Salt & Light here. Matt and Rachel, along with the core leadership team, receive their leadership and oversight from Martin & Lynda Dunkley who lead the North East’s apostolic base, Tees Valley Community Church.

Eden Network

The Eden Network was born out of the Message Trust in Manchester and encourages teams of Christians to live and build their lives in council estates and other deprived areas of the country. These teams are dedicated to bring the transformational hope and truth of Jesus to young people, families, and ultimately the whole community.

We want to see the power of God transform the area that we live in, which is why we have partnered with Eden.

You can read more about the fantastic work of the Eden Network here, and you can keep up to date with what Eden Southwick are up to by liking our Facebook page!
