Mental Health Support Group
The Mental Health Support Group meets at Grace Church twice a month. This is an informal group that aims to provide a safe place for people who are, or have been, struggling with any mental health issues, or support those who do. It is a place to get to know each other and build community together, on the road to recovery.

Important Covid-19 Information
The doors will open at 10.30am and there will be a sign-in sheet at the entrance to the building as you arrive, so that we can keep to government guidance on Test and Trace and monitor our building capacity. At the meeting, you'll need to remain socially distanced and wear a mask, so please bring one with you. There will be some available for you to use if you forget and please speak to a member of our Welcome Team if you need to discuss any medical exemptions. The seating will be arranged socially distanced and there will be hand sanitiser stations on the way in and the way out.

If you have had any symptoms of Covid-19 during the last two weeks, or have had a positive Covid-19 test in the last two weeks, please do not attend. Over 70s and those who are vulnerable are advised not to attend.

DNA
You always have a better relationship with someone when you understand and truly know them, that's why we want to get to know you and give you the chance to get to know us too. DNA is designed to help you discover who we are, hear more about our cultural values, the markers of discipleship and our growth track. 

DNA is for anyone who's new to Grace Church but has already been to one of our welcome events (previous welcome lunches or nights, Connect Zoom or Meet & Greet).

This will be a great opportunity to spend about an hour chatting on Zoom with some of Grace Church's leadership team and staff, and will give you a chance to ask any questions you might have about us.

We want you to feel like part of the family so register your place and discover who we are. (Zoom details will be sent out with confirmation of sign-ups).

Reading the Bible: Christmas Special
This Reading The Bible session is a Christmas special called 'Reading the Nativity'! We all know that Jesus’ birth is one of the Bible’s best known stories, but there are two very different accounts. Matthew and Luke tell mismatched tales with seemingly contradictory details. How can both be true and historically accurate? Have they been embellished, maybe even made up?

In this session, we’ll untangle fact and fairy tale. We’ll see how these differences actually strengthen rather than weaken our understanding and our faith.

Meeting ID: 585-117-300

Reading The Bible is a place to dig deep into the Word of God and to pick up practical tools for studying it effectively.
