Sowing Seeds Ministries is a Christian Charity which is committed to bringing the love and hope shared in knowing Jesus Christ.

Chris Andrews, one of the founding brothers of Acklam Car Centre, is proud to support local Christian charity Sowing Seeds based in Stockton On Tees. Gram Seed, along with his wife Natasha founded Sowing Seeds Ministries in 2007 and have dedicated their lives to fulfilling their dream. Gram was originally a customer of Acklam Car Centre long ago and became good friends with Chris over the course of the proceeding few years.

Gram travels the country visiting Prisons, Schools and Churches, working closely with the community to aid offenders, ex-offenders and families to a better way of life. They also offer drug, alcohol and any life controlling addictions awareness courses in schools, prisons and in the wider community. They support people in time of need, offering Christian discipleship and guidance, helping them to accept and learn from their mistakes, and help sustain community cohesion where they can feel a sense of belonging through the word of God.

As of 2014 they have established their own little sanctuary in the heart of Stockton-On-Tees where all are welcome for a cup of tea and a chat. Their opening times are 9:30am-3:30pm. Gram's son Caleb also helps out at the dealership on a weekend keeping all of our stunning stock clean and pristine.
