About The Centre Church

About The Centre Church New Bedford

The Centre is a church replant that seeks to be mosaic of missional communities, transforming our community with the Good News of Jesus love. Our predecessor churches have been serving New Bedford and the surrounding communities since 1787. The Elm Street Methodist Episcopal Church in 1820 was visited by such notables as Fredrick Douglass, Herman Melville, and leaders of a community that was known as the “City that Lights the World”. In 2004 The Centre Fairhaven UMC close and merged with Trinity UMC on New Bedford which became the Centre-Trinity United Methodist Church.  In 2012 the Centre-Trinity United Methodist Church took a bold move to become a “New Church Plant” that is willing to get outside our doors and serve our community.  We are committed to forming missional communities in neighborhoods of New Bedford and our surrounding towns that will be accountable to each other as they learn what it means to be an authentic Christian community.  

Our Mission

Missional Communities are the primary tool we have for both nurturing and practicing our faith. Missional Communities will be located throughout the South Coast and will offer a number of opportunities to serve others while learning and growing in your faith. The Centre is a part of the 3DM Network. This video by Mike Breen might help you to see how we are using “Missional Communities” to transform the South Coast, one life at a time.
