Established Portsmouth

We’re Mark and Sarah Carter and we have been leading young adult & student ministry since 2009, launching Established 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 on Wednesday evenings, but occasionally we mix things up for socials or road trips – so it’s good to keep an eye on our calendar, or the Family Church app, to make sure you’re in the right place at the right time! 

We tailor our teaching 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. On Sunday morning and evening meetings in Portsmouth you’ll find them near a banner “Uni Student? Talk to us!” at the beginning of the September term.

In September we’re having a free lunch for students and we would love for you to join us, click here to RSVP. In March 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?
