Central is a church in the heart of Edinburgh with a vision to love the city, be family together and follow Jesus.
Edinburgh is our home and we want to love and serve the people that live in this city. We believe that God’s love can transform lives and communities, and we want to see that happening in the places that we live.
We are family together – we are different kinds of people from different places who share our lives generously with each other.
We are following Jesus. We call ourselves disciples because the most important thing in our lives is to learn how to do what Jesus said to do.
We connect together across the city through 'Communities', and gather together to worship in different ways, on-line and in-person using our Edinburgh City Centre venue Central Hall in Tollcross where needed.
One of the ways we love our city is through our 'Transformation Project'. This is a collective of initiatives, some in partnership with other organisations, seeking to care for those in our city who are in need – those in poverty, suffering from the effects of mental health, vulnerable and lonely.
Every year we run a campaign called ‘Just Christmas’, which is a chance for us to invite the church to give away at Christmas as an extravagant offering over and above what we usually give away as a church.
