Members kept growing and Luton was made a preaching point in April 2001. Luton is the mother church of all churches in Central charge and some in Midlands. Luton moved from place to place to find a place to meet every Sunday. This includes schools, halls, hotels and Anglican church until we moved where we are now in 2009.
