Corona Virus Update

An important update about Corona Virus.

In line with Government guidance the project is currently closed to visitors and our usual groups.

However, if you need assistance our volunteers and admin staff are still working at home please contact us at  or message us on Facebook

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these times.


The Grindon Church Community Project is situated in Galway Road, just off the A183 on the southwest side of Sunderland.

In the middle of a housing estate, the Grindon United Reformed Church was built in the 1950s  and now engages with the community in a variety of ways.    Grindon URC became a Mission Project of the Northern Synod of the United Reformed Church in 2014. We hold services, the next ones being Messy Church on 9th February at 3.30. 

We offer the a range of services and sacraments including weddings, baptisms and funerals by arrangement. Very soon we will begin short prayer sessions including time for quiet reflective prayer. 

All are welcome!
