Dear Grace Church – we know the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting everyone in different ways – whether physically, financially, or emotionally.
As a church family, we are coming together as the body of Christ to be good neighbours and to love Exeter. This page gives you the headlines of how we are responding at the moment.
All of our Sunday Gatherings will be online until further notice. We invite you to gather with us digitally, for worship and teaching every Sunday at 10am. Join us here.
Our kids team have produced resources to help your family worship at home. Please find our kids resources here.
During this time of uncertainty, anxiety and grief, we as a church family want to support each other and care for each other.
Our Community Groups each have a care champion facilitating emotional support within their group. Additionally, we have a pastoral care team. Please reach out to us if you would like prayer or to talk.
During this time of disruption, as a church family we also want to support each other practically. We have a team of people ready to deliver essential supplies to those vulnerable or self-isolating. Please reach out to us here if you would like to join the team or if you need help.
We have established a financial relief fund to help those whose income has been negatively impacted by the economic implications of the Coronavirus. Email Joe Wilson for more details and to apply for help. Please click here to see the Family News interview about this fund.
Excitingly, we have a number of pregnant mums-to-be at Grace Church. They have started a WhatsApp group to support each other whilst self-isolating during the Coronavirus. To join our mums-to-be WhatsApp group click here.
At the start of this crisis, over 40% of the Exeter Foodbank’s volunteers were over 70. Jake contacted the Foodbank to offer them our help. As a church family, we are now supporting the Foodbank with around 35 volunteer hours a week. Click here to sign up to the Grace Church volunteering team.
Would you, or your Community Group, like to offer help to our city council? If so please access the Exeter Community Wellbeing initiative. The initiative looks to connect people in need with those able to provide help.
