Welcome to Our Church

Sadly, in line with many other Churches we have decided to remain closed during this lockdown. The safety of our members and visitors is most important and we would prefer that you “Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives”. 

We will be open again as soon as we can!

As Easter approaches, we will be providing palm crosses outside the church on Lune Street for you to take, but why not make your own at home? Check out this video from St Albans Cathedral on YouTube

You are welcome to join in with daily Facebook Live services, prayers and meditations 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
