Causes We Fight For
The Local And Global Work Of Central

For us, mission doesn’t just mean a far-off place. It is an everyday endeavour, across the street and across the Niagara Region.

Local Mission
in the Niagara Region

Local mission is the way our church serves the real needs of individuals in our community.

Through partnerships with local agencies and our own initiatives we advance the Love of God here at home. Scroll down to find out about our local anchor cause, Community Crew.

Helping Out Is As Simple As 1, 2, 3

Our vision is to make sure that every child in Niagara starts school each year with all of the basic supplies they need to be successful, and we need your help. It won’t take much of your time, but it will go a long way for school kids in need each fall.

Community Crew

Breaking the cycle of poverty in Niagara by empowering and inspiring kids to make good decisions.

Live Different Movement was first launched by Central Community Church in 2008 to inspire citizens in Niagara to make a difference in their region through community service. As a result, hundreds of volunteers are now serving in non-profit organizations here and around the world.

In 2013, Live Different took a formal step to pursue charitable status and tackle poverty’s effect on children in Niagara. Today, with the help of Community Partners, we offer proactive and reactive programs that make a difference in the lives of hundreds of kids.

At the end of 2015, Live Different took on a new look and a new name. The same mission, just a new name. Community Crew.
