At Resound, we believe an important part of our mission is to support and work alongside people who are doing God's work not only in our city, but all over the world. We partner with local and global ministries with the aim of supporting them financially, publicising their work and needs, promoting what they are doing, and creating opportunities for individuals or teams to volunteer or serve with them in some form or other.

Local Partners


Crossways is an integral ministry of Resound, born out of vision from those in the church and running in the Resound building.

Crossways' vision is to create a warm, comfortable, friendly and welcoming environment for all children, their families, carers and visitors. The Crossways staff are experienced, approachable and trustworthy, and operate an ‘open door policy’.

They listen to children and adults in order to provide high quality learning, opportunities for everyone.

They aim for children to develop high self-esteem and a strong self-identity, encouraging them to take responsibility for themselves, each other and the environment around them, in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Crossways' priority is for children to be happy, healthy, safe and confident in a fun environment.
