God’s heart is for the poor and the marginalised, the voiceless and the oppressed – we exist to demonstrate God’s love, even in the darkest places.

Loving Our City

At ChristCentral Church we are passionate about our city, we sense excitement as we see how the city is developing, and even coming into the city now we have signs to welcome us to “The Great Waterfront City” – we love Portsmouth! Portsmouth is more than just a city, it is also a people and Jesus calls us to reach people, to express love to them in practical and spiritual ways.

Whilst there is much development in the city there is also much need: spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially. We want to be a church that blesses our city with what we have been blessed with!

Responding to hardship caused by COVID-19

To meet some of the needs of those who have been told to self-isolate, we have set up a support framework which will match those in need of support, with others who are in the best position to provide it.  The buttons below give you the opportunity to both ask for support and/or to offer help to others.  Each button will take you to an e-form, which we would ask you to complete and submit. Then, a member of the team will contact you to make an initial response and get the process started. If you have any questions about this, please email the church office.

Love Portsea

We meet on Sundays in the Portsea area of the city, it’s an area full of rich history, as well as modern high rises and the Gunwharf Quays shopping district.  Despite the development, Portsea is one of the poorest areas of the city too.  We believe Portsea should feel the benefit of having a large vibrant multi-cultural church meeting on their ‘patch’.

In addition to prayer, supporting the John Pounds Centre and supporting other initiatives in the area, the students get together for a week of serving Portsea at the end of their exams, at the end of May.

Creation Care

Becoming an Eco Church is so much more than looking after buildings in an environmentally-friendly way – though that’s a key part of the process. This journey affects every area of our church lives, including how we engage with our communities and the wider world. It is about holistic mission.

Live ecologically. Let your life speak louder than your words. Then the people around you will start to wonder why you are caring for creation. And as you make ecology enjoyable, you will impact your community even more. It’s a snowball effect.

Pastoral Support Team

A biblical church is a church that engages all its members in supporting, encouraging and building one another up.  Life Group leaders are the primary people to turn to if additional care or support is required.  The Pastoral Support Team exists to help Life Group leaders by providing specialist care, and they can connect individuals within the church to others who have gone through similar experiences so that they can journey together.  The five main areas of care are: practical support, relationships, mental wellbeing, financial and life controlling habits.
