As from November 2020 the fellowship of St Bede United Reformed Church has combined with our friends at Stockton Rd United Reformed Church
There has been a fellowship worshipping in Sorley Street since 1887. We have origins in the Free Methodist Church which was in Franklin Street, Millfield, Sunderland. The Minister and several members decided to establish a new fellowship. Initially meeting in private homes, they soon found premises, the cottage at 65 Sorley Street. The fellowship was quickly established with the building of the present School Room. This was followed by the present Church building and a decision to join the Congregational Church of England & Wales and subsequently the United Reformed Church.
