About Central

Welcome to Central

We are a church who loves Edinburgh and loves Jesus. Join us on Sundays or during the week all over the city.

What's on

Communities across Edinburgh, serving the city

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.

More about Communities

We gather on Sundays

We gather three times on a Sunday to hang out and spend time worshipping God, reading the bible, listening to a talk and sharing some stories together. Come and join us.

"I grew up in an area where we knew all of our neighbours – small collections of colony houses where we tripped over each other and the kids all played together. Having good relationships with our neighbours has been a given – they’re the people God’s placed us to live amongst and seek their blessing.

Our first party wasn’t actually at Christmas; we invited our immediate neighbours for a meal in December to say thank you for being brilliant, putting up with our mess of a garden and being so kind to our kids. And now, for the last four or five years we’ve had a Christmas party and most people come.

Winter is for celebrating – from Halloween when our neighbourhood knocks on our door all night, through Thanksgiving, Burns night, a gin night and our birthdays, we gather our community and our neighbours in whatever configuration we can. It keeps relationships live over the cold, dark days. Christmas sits in the middle of that, and that party is specifically for our street, so people know it’s their party and come.

We want to build community and share life with the people God’s placed us to live amongst and seek their blessing. A party doesn’t make that happen, but it’s a great and fun way to start!" This Christmas we’re inviting our church to be throwing Christmas Parties all across the city; taking the time in a busy season to build community and deepen relationships with the people that we share our life with. So, set a date, invite your friends and #pinyourparty!

We’re going to be exploring what it means to be 'All In' - to commit or re-commit to being part of the story of Central as a member. After the gathering on the 24th we're also going to have a light lunch together and we'd love to see everybody there! Get in touch if you want to bake something to share.
