Our Story

Middlesbrough Community Church began life more than 30 years ago when a small group of Christians started to meet together in a house in Middlesbrough. The fledgling community grew in numbers and moved into the St Aidan’s building on Clifton Street, Middlesbrough and eventually took on the name St Aidan’s Community Church.

In 2007 we changed our name to Middlesbrough Community Church because of a growing sense and belief that God was calling us to stretch out and demonstrate the love of God in practical and creative ways right across Middlesbrough.

We’re pretty clear too that church isn’t about the bricks or the mortar – but about people – and so have this conviction that God asks us to demonstrate, practically, what love and sacrifice really looks like in this world.

Jesus did this for us and you can find out more about how we’re doing this through our community in Middlesbrough by browsing this website. Our church motto is People are Important. People matter to God and it’s our desire and intention to see a growing church community that reflects this.

As part of our vision we also want to see more congregations established across Middlesbrough that serve the local communities: one church – Middlesbrough Community Church – but meeting and working in many different locations.

Whatever your background or wherever you’re from, you’ll always be welcome at Middlesbrough Community Church.
