Planting

We are committed to seeing new communities reached with the good news of Jesus by the planting of new churches.

Sunderland Presbyterian Church Plant

Revd Nathan Hilton was ordained on the 17th of November 2018 following a unanimous vote of the congregation establishing him as a teaching elder with a view to plant a church faithfully proclaiming the gospel in the needy city of Sunderland. On Easter Sunday, 2019, after months of preparatory bible studies, Sunderland Presbyterian Church held its first Sunday services. There have been early encouragements and services continue at 10:30am and 5:00pm. Please check out their website!

Hexham Presbyterian Church

Hexham presbyterian church is the result of many years of prayer for a Reformed church in the Tyne Valley. The Revd Josh Rieger (BSc, University of Arizona; MDiv, RTS), a minister from a sister denomination in the USA, was approved by the EPCEW to work as a church planter and he, his wife Gina and children Jackson, Riley Cates and Rutherford arrived in the UK at the beginning of February 2014. Regular services of Hexham Presbyterian Church began in early February 2015 and the church become more and more established over the past several years. They meet twice each Lord’s Day at the Torch Centre at 10am and 5pm. Please check out their website!
