Established Portsmouth

We’re Mark and Sarah Carter and we have been leading young adult & student ministry since 2009, launching the Established congregation in 2012. We desire to see young adults succeed in their workplaces, families, relationships and studies, and that’s why we oversee this ministry. 

We typically meet at the Empower Centre, but occasionally we mix things up for socials or road trips – so it’s good to keep an eye on our Facebook (/established.portsmouth)/Instagram (establishedportsmouth) Page, or the Family Church app, to make sure you’re in the right place at the right time! 

We tailor our messages specifically to address issues surrounding young adults & uni students,  and we call ourselves “Established” as Ephesians 3:17-18 says “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ”. 

We have a strong team of young adults who are waiting to welcome you and disciple you, and will even organise transport to get you there on Sunday!  If you would like a lift then text your name to: 07507 331724.

As well as our Sunday evening meetings we also have a fortnightly Connect Group to answer your questions, and we support the CU to make sure we’re reaching students at Portsmouth University. In April we get away for our Consolidate weekend, an opportunity to study, socialise and worship together, so make sure you’re booked in for that.

Free this Sunday?
