Grace Community Church takes as its guiding principle a verse from Isaiah 61:
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners.
We seek to do this by treating others as Jesus did, with love, kindness, care and service. We don’t always succeed in this, but we do try!
We follow the Christian tradition of a weekly meeting on a Sunday morning. Since 2006, this has been held at Stowbridge Village Hall. There is a time of worship and of teaching, and it is also an opportunity for us to support and encourage one another. At the Village Hall site, we have two mobile classrooms which are used for small group meetings, ‘children’s church’ and other activities. One is particularly equipped for those with additional needs.
During the week we meet as small-groups, to enable us to grow in our faith as we learn together and pray together. There are also prayer meetings and a toddler group (‘Mini ARC’). From time to time we put on social events or activities. We have a particular concern for and interest in those with additional needs, and hold a regular gathering for them: you can find more details on the ARC page. Overseas, we practically and financially support ‘Care for Kuffu’, an associated charity which supports a village school and medical facilities in Uganda.
We are, quite simply, a group of ordinary people who have met with an extraordinary God. We would love to meet with you, and you are welcome to join us on a Sunday, or at any of our other meetings. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call us on 07766 135281 or email us. So, come meet us
