"To transform County Durham by building a CHRIST CENTRED, BIBLE BASED & SPIRIT FILLED Church, changing perceptions and empowering people to serve, lead and impact in all areas of life”

CDCLC is a contemporary Christian Church that believes completely in the hope found in the saving grace of Jesus.  We are passionate about building the local Church through extravagant worship, bible centred teaching, Holy Spirit led prayer and reaching out to our local community. We want to give people the opportunity to respond to the Gospel, to hear of the hope found in Jesus and to grow in their faith in, knowledge of and relationship with God.


CDCLC began in October 2020, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, when jamie (our Lead Pastor) felt called to plant a Church in his home area.  Jamie is a former Director of Youth for Christ in the North East, has a degree in Theology, Ministry & Mission from Durham University (where he now works training leaders for ministry) and has previously served as a Service Pastor at Newcastle Christian Life Centre (Later Hillsong) a large Church in the City Centre.  Jamie is married to Helen and they have an adorable young son, John. 

CDCLC joined Elim Pentecostal Churches, a 'growing movement of Christian congregations in the UK and Ireland'.  Elim's deep pentecostal heritage and passion for evangelism and the local Church are the perfect home to take us forward into our next phase of growth as a Church.

On February 2nd 2024 CDCLC began our first extension service with the beginning of our Durham Connect gathering in the CIty centre.
