Our Senior Pastor had a vision of a church that would exist to reach those who didn’t know God, creating a community for those not yet on a spiritual journey. In September 1995 in a small village called Longton, the first service had 40 people. Since then, we’ve met in locations around the city, where God has allowed us to grow and increase to around 400 people.
In 2016 we moved into Landmark, our own building under our new name of Crossgate Church. We are now able to reach and serve more people throughout Preston and South Ribble as we are based in the city centre.
We believe church is a place for every generation to worship and know God. We love engaging our kids and young people, during our Sunday services where we teach Bible principles and create memories. Throughout the week we continue to reach out to the community with youth, mid-week services for the older generation and hubs across our region.
Our church exists to meet the needs of the world and serve people in our community in a way that Jesus described in Matthew 25.
