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 14th July 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!

RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood Award  Outstanding –  great thanks to LEAF, CEED  and Community Foundation for enabling us to ‘Grow our garden’. None of these changes would have been possible without their generosity and faith in us and our volunteers to completely transform large areas of the garden from wilderness to inviting!
