Central Presbyterian Church is a welcoming community dedicated to diversity and inclusivity.  People of different races, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, educational levels, housing statuses and religious backgrounds gather each Sunday to worship together, united by a desire to worship God and follow Jesus’s example in our lives.  Our clergy and lay leaders are a cross-section of our community.

Throughout the year, Central offers faith opportunities in the heart of Atlanta:

  • Sunday services, each week at 11:00am in the sanctuary
  • Taizé services, the first Tuesday of each month in the chapel, September through May
  • Faith Education and Sunday school for all ages, each Sunday at 9:45am
  • Special opportunities, such as small groups, home worship services, and additional services around Lent and Advent

Central supports the Atlanta community with several outreach activities and volunteer opportunities:

Central is located in downtown Atlanta, directly across from the Georgia State Capitol, and draws its membership from across the greater Atlanta area.  We are convenient to the Five Points and Georgia State MARTA stations, and free parking is available in the garage at 180 Central Avenue for Sunday services.

You may also wish to read about our history, listen to a sermon, or scroll through our Frequently Asked Questions.

Join us for worship. You are welcome here.
