Welcome to Grace Church, we'd love you to come and join us one Sunday. Church isn’t all about Sundays, but our Sunday services are an important part of our life together.
If you join us on a Sunday, you’ll find a mixed bag of people spanning different ages, backgrounds, and life experiences. Most of us have a Christian faith, but some of us are still exploring. Regulars and visitors come bringing their questions, objections, struggles, doubts and encouragements. Through the services, question times and over coffee we look to create opportunities for people to engage in ways that will help them.
The morning service begins at 11am. There is coffee available before the service and a chance to meet up with those who have been at the earlier St Peter's Service. The service is generally over by 12noon, so its not unusual for people to chat a while over coffee and then head to someone’s house for brunch. A creche is available during the service.
Various different youth groups run during our morning and in the afternoon. For more information about these, check out the youth & children page.
What to expect
Walking into the building
We’re a church with lots of young families, so as you walk in that’s probably one of the first things you would notice.
The building has ‘step-free’ access giving level/ramped entry to our meetings through the hall entrance. There is also an accessible toilet on the ground floor of the church and hall buildings.
The service itself is fairly informal. That reflects who we are, as well as our history (we used to meet at the Maid of Muswell pub). Despite the informal feel, we’re serious about what we’re doing when we meet together. We gather to encourage each other through music and prayer, and to hear and respond to the Bible read and preached. We’re convinced that where the Bible is taught with thought, love, and prayer, God's voice is heard in a way that is relevant and life-changing.
After the service, there’s time to catch up with people, and the chance to talk some more about the Bible teaching we’ve just had (for those who want to).
