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).
There is pay and display parking on the streets around the SU, and there are a few large car parks nearby, including the Rose Bowl and Woodhouse Lane Car Park. If you’re happy to walk a little way, parking at Josephs Well Car Park is free.
There are multiple bike storage areas around the SU.
We’re so glad you’re here! At Mosaic, we have a community of students, led by our Student Pastor, Grace Ellerby, who meet together regularly, share life together and spur one another on in their journey of faith, discovering what it looks like to be disciples who make disciples on their campuses in Leeds.
If you would like to get involved, come join us on a Sunday!
We’d love to invite you to a Welcome Meal where you can hear about the vision and values of the church. This is hosted by Rich Bradley who leads Mosaic Central and it’s a brilliant way to get to know other new people, enjoy some delicious food and help you get plugged in at Mosaic.
If you’d like to come, grab Rich on a Sunday, or email him at email@example.com.
Student Mission Groups
We have two student focused Mission Groups (our mid-week small groups) which are great places to meet people with similar passions and interests, build community, grow in your faith, and share the good news of Jesus with others. Get in touch with some of the leaders of the groups below, or come along on a Sunday to find out more!
Our students also meet together periodically for food, worship and teaching at our Student Clusters.
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 Groups, 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.
Come along on a Sunday to find out more, or there are more details on My ChurchSuite (if you’ve got a My ChurchSuite account with us).
