Just Christmas

The impact of COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable in our city. It is estimated that by Spring 2021, 82,100 people in Edinburgh will be living below the poverty line.

This Winter, we want to raise £20,000 and donate 82,100 items of underwear to help meet the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing in our city .

Join a Community

God has changed each of our lives in an incredible way. We’d love to see the same transformation in the lives of our friends and in our city. We do this through communities, formed around a common focus, desiring to be like and love like Jesus.

Just Christmas Update! We're delighted to say that so far we have raised over £18,000 towards our £20k target to support Bethany Christian Trust, Soul Food & the Hampers Project.
We have also already raised over 25,000 items of underwear for Project Pants! We're so grateful to you all for your generosity and faithful giving so far - but there's still time to give.

We would still love to hit our ambitious Project Pants target of 82,100 items. Due to the latest restrictions we are pausing collecting physical donations, and so our focus now is on financial donations. Do keep on thinking of ways to raise awareness - perhaps you could do a sponsored challenge, or get work colleagues involved. Any contribution will help us on our way to reach our target - £10 will buy 20 items of underwear, and £100 will buy 200!

We're looking forward to our three online Gatherings today! Join us at 10:30am, 11am and 8pm. We'll be continuing our teaching series looking at what God is calling us into as a church and how we can each play our part and be 'All In'. centralchurch.co.uk/sundayonline
We're gearing up to launch some new Alpha Courses in February. It's the perfect time of year to ask some of life's big questions. Invite your friends, family or colleagues to try Alpha - you never know, it might just change their life. centralchurch.co.uk/alpha
This January we're encouraging everyone in our church to take a Retreat Day from home. It’s really important to set aside special times to be with God – every day, every week and at certain times in the year too. A Retreat Day helps you to focus on your relationship with God, to listen to him, to rest with him and to pray and worship. However long you choose to do it, it's a chance to 'get away' with God and to spend time with him, letting him restore and revive you at the beginning of this year.

To help guide you through your day, one of our elders, Crystal, has put together a super helpful Retreat at Home guide on the website, with prayers, exercises, creative activities and resources for families.  centralchurch.co.uk/retreat-at-home
