“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 13 v35
Love expressed through action is a key part of the Christian faith. As we have received the love of Christ we should share that love with those around us.
We believe in the power of prayer
Whether you go to our church or not, we would love to add you to our prayers. We regular pray for the church, the city and the nations.
Loving our City
At Christ Central Church we are passionate about our city. 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.
Here To Help
At Christ Central we recognise there are many incredible organisations able to provide support and advice in the city. You may be in need, or may feel you’d want to support one of these organisations directly.
We have created the Hope Helps fund to provide practical support to relieve hardship or poverty amongst persons known to Christ Central Church Portsmouth, as detailed in the Hope Helps Support Fund Policy.
Please complete the short application form below. The request will be reviewed, with a decision aimed to be given within 10 working days.
Each year, Christ Central Church commits to give away 10% of all our income to local and global charities. Through this we ensure we are wise stewards of the donations received and we multiply the effectiveness of our work through partner organisations.
Local Mission Partners
Here are a selection of organisations we financially support that work in the local area. We are a church rooted in this great waterfront city, seeking to love the place we are in.
Global Mission Partners
Here are a selection of organisations we financially support that work internationally, we are a church we a global outlook, as we see the gospel advance to every tribe and tongue.
Ways to Give
Jesus has been very good to us! In response we want to live as generous people, giving of our time, energy and resources to bring blessing to other people. This is Biblical Stewardship.
Giving is part of our worship and we have opportunity to give financially as we gather on Sunday mornings. If you would like to know more about the principles of giving and the teaching that we share on money, you can listen to our sermons on this subject here.
Standing Orders are the preferred method as it involves less administration, is fee free, and helps us to budget more easily.
If you need bank details to set up a Standing Order, please contact the Church Office:
We are able to process donations online. You can make a one-off card payment, or set up a regular Direct Debit through ChurchSuite.
At each of our locations you can find giving envelopes to allow you to give by cash or cheque – follow the instructions on the envelope. We also have a card reader should you wish to pay with a cashless system.
If you have any questions about how to give, please speak to a member of our Hospitality Team, who will be happy to help.
