At the Minster we have a long standing ministry to refugees and asylum seekers.

If you are new to Sunderland you are very welcome at the Minster call in and see us or come to worship on a Sunday at 9.45 am – we would love to meet you.

Currently we have a number of Iranian asylum seekers as part of our Farsi speaking congregation. We have Farsi Bibles and service books to help you through the service. There are regular baptism classes for those who seek baptism.

As well as Iranians there are others from Africa, Afghanistan as part of our multi-national congregation. No matter where you have come from you are welcome at the Minster and we will seek to support you in whatever way we can as well as help you to learn more about the Christian Faith
