Welcome & Introduction

Welcome to the website of the partnership between Connect Durham and The Monday Night Group of

King's Church Durham.



The Monday Night Group is a Christian Bible Study and Worship Group which provides outreach to the people of Durham. The Monday Night Group is facilitated by and exclusively overseen by King's Church Durham. Alongside this, local charity Handcrafted provides regular activity predominantly for those struggling with homelessness. It involves hands-on-training in woodwork, mechanics and landscape gardening.


Connect Durham is a Christian group, which is a member of Junction42's Connect Network and is part of The Monday Night Group of King's Church Durham. Junction42's aim is to provide an accessible Christian network to prison leavers, ex-offenders and their families and friends across the North East of England. This is facilitated via Junction42's Connect Network of Connect Groups, which currently comprises of Connect Durham, Connect Newcastle, Connect Sunderland, Connect Stockton and Connect Gateshead. Junction42 exists to see the lives of offenders and their communities visibly transformed by the hope of the gospel.


In addition to the Connect Durham participants, people from many backgrounds and organisations attend The Monday Night Group meetings. For example, members of King's Church Durham, people whom are homeless, suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, afflicted with mental health problems, students, unemployed and members of the general public as well as guest representatives from Junction42's Connect Network. All are welcome to come and enjoy the fellowship and worship.


The history of how the two groups came together can be seen on the ABOUT US page.
