Over 20 years ago,

a small group of people began a three-month Bible study on the church. They felt after much prayer and discussion that the Lord had called them to plant a new model of church that was like the early church we read about in the book of Acts. This group began to meet in homes and various locations throughout the city.

By 1997, The Meeting Place (TMP) was a small, fledgling group that desired to see God move and began to cry out to God for help. Through God’s leading the church connected with Dave & Rosie Fellingham (Brighton, UK), and Don & Stephanie Smith (Eastbourne, UK). The Fellinghams and Smiths were both connected with a family churches called Newfrontiers (www.newfrontierstogether.org).

Since then,

the church has continued to grow and mature. In 1999 we celebrated the purchase of 487 Brunswick Street, there are now many established areas of ministry (life groups, kids’ church, youth group, & Street Level) that are being overseen by emerging leaders, and God has provided an eldership team and a growing relationship with Jeremy and Ann Simpkins and ChristCentral Churches. In the summer of 2012 the church made the choice to change it’s name to Christ Central Church. This new name better reflects our heart and mission

Right now,

we are facing lots of new challenges, but many opportunities as well. We entered 2020 saying that we were moving "Forward in Faith" and that has certainly proven true! This current season is difficult for sure, but we have much to be thankful for! An increased online presence means we are able to reach more and more people.   We are also excited to begin the process of moving into our new home at 140 Clark St and impacting the neighbourhood around us in real, tangible ways.


We are served by a team of elders who oversee all areas of spiritual, temporal and community life of the church. Our eldership team provides pastoral care, carries the main responsibility of preaching and teaching, and sets the vision, values, and overall strategy of the church. Our current eldership team is Joe Crummey, Ben McGuigan, Oli Surgenor, and Mark Rushworth. 

Along with the elders, we have many in leadership roles as coordinators, deacons, and pastors,
