Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara Sikh Centre (Formerly Christ Church), Ryhope Road, Sunderland - Sunderland

Formerly a parish church, built in 1862-64 by James Murray of Coventry. Closed by the Church of England, the building has been acquired by the Sikh community and continues as a place of worship. It contains high quality stained glass. A first phase of urgent repairs, including works to rainwater pipes and gutters, was completed in 2014 with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme. The spire is in need of urgent repair.
