Welcome to Our Church

The Olive Grove Cafe has now reopened! It is now open Mondays, Wednesdays Thursdays and Fridays 1000-1245. The church will be reopening for worship on the 4th October 1030 with Wednesday lunchtime worship at 1pm following from the 14th. We hope to welcome you back soon, no booking required (we’ve opened the gallery!)

So that you know what to expect we have produced a leaflet that explains the ‘new normal’! 

You are welcome to join in with daily Facebook Live services, prayers and meditations that run at www.facebook.com/watlingst

Support and advice organisations have been added to this website providing local and national contacts if you find yourself in a difficult place and need help, or just a chat at this time.

If you are a regular attender at the church, you may wish to know that a WhatsApp group has been set up to keep people in touch, please use the contact form on this website to request to be added. You can always keep up to date with our weekly Church chat newsletter that is posted opposite each week!

Whether you are visiting for the first time, or the first time for some time, you’ll receive a warm welcome at Central!

With an emphasis on caring for the people in the city centre, you’ll find us involved with the homeless, those in need and through our friendly Olive Grove Coffee Shop. Our church family come from all over Preston and we welcome everyone who comes to our front door!

You don’t need to know what ‘church’ is all about to come along, it would just be good to see you!rainbow
