Our CENTRAL gathering meets every Sunday at 4pm Leeds Beckett Students’ Union - The Stage, Portland Building, Portland Way, LS1 3HE.
About midway through my second year of medical studies, a fellow rugby teammate invited me to Mosaic. Having grown up going to church with my family, I thought: “why not?”. I was met by a diverse community of people whose authentic faith in Jesus really challenged me. I discovered a church that has influence beyond the confines of walls on a Sunday.
Mosaic’s vision of seeing God’s kingdom grow in Leeds. This prompted a pursuit for the truth. The Sunday services and mid-week mission groups nurtured this pursuit, without being overbearing. 6 months following my first visit to Mosaic, I committed my life to Christ and was plugged into the church.
Two years later now, and Mosaic continues to equip and inspire me to live a missional life. I feel comfortable inviting non-Christian friends along to church or other events. Mosaic facilitates discipleship opportunities to help grow, and reaffirm our calling: to love God, and to love others. To conclude, the church pointed me to the person I should place my trust in – Jesus. In Him.
Having graduated from university, I decided to move to Leeds for work. I found myself in a city where I knew no one and didn’t have my friends and family to run to. On a recommendation I decided to check Mosaic out. I was struck by the warmth of everyone I met at church and how quickly they helped me to settle into my new life in Leeds through Mission Group and other events. I felt so welcomed that decided to stay and felt like I belonged.
Over the few years I’ve been here I’ve been able to make some incredible friends, who have loved, accepted and challenged me. Through mission group, discipleship triplets, and the discipleship track I’ve been equipped to grow in my relationship with God and encouraged to delve deeper into learning about God’s character and explore my faith, I have found it to be nothing less than liberating. Mosaic for me is what church should be like- lively, fun, encouraging, filled with love and discipleship.
Our mid-week groups, which we call Mission Group, are great places to meet people with similar passions and interests, find a community, grow in your faith, and share the good news of Jesus with others. Many groups are geographical, but there are also student, young professional, International groups, and social justice groups.
Have a look at some of our groups. If you would like more detail or would like to be connected with a group leader then please email email@example.com
We want to be firmly rooted in God’s word, share life together as brothers and sisters in Christ. We usually share a meal together before taking a closer look at the Bible to learn more about Jesus, His love for us and what that means for our lives.
We believe that apologetics is one of the key bridges that can be used for our culture to access the gospel in a way that is relevant and thought provoking. We hope to facilitate meaningful discussion and welcome those at any stage of their journey.
We are a collaborative community using our creative gifts to explore the gospel, the impact this has on who we are and the artwork we produce. In the autumn term we will be introducing and exploring who the God of the Bible is through discussion and creative activities.
An already established competitive football team which plays in the top division of the Yorkshire Christian Football League. We aim to support and encourage each other as we take Jesus onto the pitch and as we share our faith with the rest of the team. We meet before training on a monthly basis to discuss the team, encourage each other and pray together.
Our hearts are for non-native English speakers, refugees and asylum seekers who are feeling isolated and vulnerable in a place so far from home; to provide friendship and a space in which they can be known, sharing who they are and where they come from.
We want to bless international students and see nations transformed by sharing life and Jesus with international students
Providing a community away from home for students to come together to share in fellowship and grow in our relationship with God and one another. Creating opportunities to share the love of Jesus on campus.
A student community ready and expectant to encounter God and see our lives, friends and city transformed. Come on an adventure with us and see what happens…
ROUND THE TABLE
We’re a group of believers looking to follow Jesus, share life together as family and love one another as he loved us. We hope to be a blessing to one another and to others and to see God’s Kingdom come.

What to Expect
We love gathering together on a Sunday. Our gathering has an informal, lively feel. We usually start with some sung worship, followed by some church news and then an engaging and relevant bible-based talk. At the end of the service, there is plenty of time to meet new people while playing table tennis or over a cup of tea. Services usually last around an hour and a quarter. We welcome anyone and everyone, no matter where you are in your journey of faith – whether you have been a Christian for a long time or you are just exploring.
At our Central Gathering we have a great kids work provision for those aged 1-11 called mo:kids. The kids stay in the main service for the first 20-30 minutes, and then an announcement will be made letting you know it’s time to take your children to their respective age groups.
If you would like more information or would like to serve on our kids team then please email Mikayla Norton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Moving to Leeds this September? We would love to get to know you, come along to one of our service at Central Gathering and get a free meal to welcome you to our favorite city, Leeds. If you would like more information or would like to be greeted by someone at the service then please email email@example.com
