About us

Cross Street Church is a family Church which aims to communicate the Christian Gospel in a way which is contemporary and relevant to all ages.  When we meet together we enjoy good Bible teaching, warm fellowship and lively worship.
A variety of activities take place at the church and you will always receive a warm welcome.

The Church building was formerly a Unitarian Chapel which had fallen into disrepair but we purchased and renovated it and in 1980 it was reopened as Congleton Pentecostal Church, although we are generally known locally as “Cross Street Church”.  In recent years an extension has been added which has provided wheel chair access, toilets, an office and a beautiful entrance area.  The old Sunday School Hall has also been refurbished and now provides excellent catering facilities and fully equipped rooms with top quality equipment for youth and children’s activities.

The Minister of the Church is Andrew Calvert, who was born in and has lived all his life in Congleton.

Mission Statement

The purpose of Congleton Pentecostal Church is to give every man, woman and child the opportunity of understanding the Gospel and to be a Church where people can grow and develop for the glory of God.

Jesus said to His disciples: “You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hid…”  Our vision is to be like a city set on a hill, shining the light and love of Jesus for all to see.

Our aim is to do this, not by staying within the four walls of a building, but by reaching out to the community around us and to a world in need.
