Our Story

Centrepoint Church is a community of disciples following Jesus by loving God, loving people, and making disciples.
Whether you are young or old, single or part of a family, we are here for people from all kinds of backgrounds.
We look forward to meeting you soon.

How it all began...

With the message of God’s good news, Centrepoint Church began in 2005 when Tom and Jean Jackson moved to Scotland with their 6 daughters and a team from America, South Africa and London to plant a church in Edinburgh.  Having spent the 1990's ministering and planting churches in Ukraine, Tom & Jean's passion  was for people to experience the life and truth available in Christ. Born with a focus on reaching people who don’t yet know God, Centrepoint is deeply committed to fulfilling Christ’s great commission.

Expanding the vision...

In 2008, Centrepoint Bathgate began when a few families came together with a simple vision to see the gospel of Jesus Christ transform the hearts and lives of people in West Lothian. Tom shifted his focus to helping the new congregation; the Edinburgh congregation continues to grow and flourish under the leadership of Gordon Wright along with his wife Grace who is an original member of the church plant team.

Where we are headed...

Though there are many good churches across Scotland, there is an insufficient number to adequately reach the significant numbers of people who don’t yet know God. Our vision is to plant Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, socially responsible churches in key cities across the nation.

But our vision is bigger than Scotland.  Working in partnership with Every Nation, we embrace the mission of Jesus to go into all the world with the good news. Our focus is on church planting in Europe.

Our Global Family

Centrepoint is a part of Every Nation, a global family that seeks to honour God by planting Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation!
We partner with Every Nation on a global and regional level in mission, church-planting, and equipping leaders so that every nation and every campus can be reached with the gospel of Jesus.
