Why we’re called ‘Christ Church Central’


We will meet in central Leeds

This way, the church is easily accessible to anyone, wherever they might live in the city. Whether you are a student, retired, married or single…everyone will be welcome. But our name is about much more than geography.

It will remind us to keep Christ central

The gospel is all about Jesus Christ, the Son of God who lived, died and rose again for us. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords and so belongs at the centre of all we do.

If Christ is central, then church is central

Just as you can’t have a husband without a bride, a shepherd without sheep, a head without a body, so too you can’t have Jesus without his church. The church is both the centre of God’s mission on earth and the place where Jesus feeds and cares for his people.
