Church Life

Sundays at Central

At the core of our Sunday ministry is the teaching and preaching of God's word. We believe that where God’s word is truly preached - that God’s voice is truly heard. We also have a skilled group of musicians who lead us in praise, drawing from a wide range of contemporary worship songs to the great historic hymns of faith.

We believe that the church is God’s agent for the blessing of our city, our land and our world. Our aim as we gather is to glorify God and to be equipped to serve him where he has placed us. We believe that where God is at work that he brings people together with him and with each other and that the Gospel heard is to be the Gospel seen as God’s people gather week by week in all of our activities and ministries.

We want to see our children grow in their faith through exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus Christ. We have a range of age-appropriate ministries for children and young people, from a well-resourced crèche through to Sparklers, Sunday school, Bible Class and Youth Group.

Each Sunday – morning and evening - we have a prayer team available to pray with you. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and that God answers prayer.


Home Groups meet throughout the city (see list below) on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wednesday evenings of the month. The venues are to be found on the notice board in the Church hall. People are encouraged to attend the Group nearest their homes.
