Calendar

Sundays

Every Sunday we prioritise being together as a church from across Portsmouth and beyond, to worship, receive teaching and celebrate the grace of God together. All are welcome to join us!

What to Expect

We meet at the John Pounds Centre, just off Queen Street in Portsmouth city centre (PO1 3HN). The band kicks off at 10:30am when we worship together singing a mixture of contemporary songs & hymns. After this, we spend some time listening to teaching from the Bible which we hope will be relevant and accessible to all. Following the sermon we will take communion together, we do this to remember and celebrate what Jesus has done for us in His death and resurrection, through the breaking of bread and the drinking of wine.

Our Sunday Morning services are tailored for the whole family. We are a growing church and are blessed to have many babies born over the last few years.  We prioritise supporting parents with their children, wanting church to be a relaxed and friendly environment for all.  We have an area with soft toys for parents and babies (0-1 year) in our main hall which can be used during the service. There is also a dedicated nursing area (mums only) in the library area (look out for the signs) for mums who would like to feed their babies in a more comfortable, relaxed setting while listening to a live audio feed of the service.

After the meeting is a great time to meet other people! Our main service ends at 12pm, when we head through for coffee, and a chance to catch up with our church family. Our Ministry Team stay in the main hall, if you would like someone to pray with you, but you are just as welcome to ask for prayer over a cup of coffee in the café. If it is your first Sunday with us, check out our Connect Area in the café, where our team will make sure you are looked after, and help answer any questions you have. There are always people on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. You may wish to complete a ‘stay in touch card’ so that we can check-in with you during the week and get to know you better, or you may want to make a speedy getaway, either way we hope you’ll enjoy your time with us.

Groups

A group is a great place to make friends, grow in faith and connect with the life of the church.

Being a Christian is not all about going to church on Sunday. It’s about living our lives with God in the centre 24/7. That’s not easy but it really helps when we have the support of others to share in our highs and lows and encourage us in our life journeys. We have many different groups that meet during the week to build community and to encourage one another.

You can go to as many different groups as you’d like and we encourage everyone to sign-up and commit to one sermon-based ‘Life Group’ or course each term. These groups run for 10-12 weeks and follow the teaching from the Sunday morning. Here you can ask the tough questions, dig deeper into the latest sermon, find mutual support in one another and meet with God as you study the Bible together. Life Groups really are the heartbeat of our church where the practical aspects of our faith are worked out.

Before each term starts, we’ll have a sign-up desk in the café on a Sunday. Alternatively you can browse our groups here, and sign-up by following the link.

Courses

We run a variety of courses at ChristCentral Church, designed to equip and empower us to live our lives to the full.
