Joining in with God’s Reconciliation of all things.

At Grace Church we want to inspire students and young adults to join in with God’s plan of reconciliation.

During your years at university and in the early stages of your career, you have a unique opportunity to invest in yourself and your relationships. You may be moving away from home for the first time, ready to explore what you want your life to look like.

This may be one of the only times in your life where you are not responsible for anyone else! We want to help you take this opportunity to have a great time and invest in your future.

We are creating a community that facilitates and encourages personal, relational and spiritual growth and we’d love you to join us on the journey wherever you are on your journey of faith.

 

Vision

We have a vivid, beautiful and tangible dream. A dream in which all things are made new. A dream where we, the beautifully designed, embrace the designer. Where we, with unlimited creativity delight our creator.

The pyramid diagram illustrates the areas that God is inviting us to reconcile to his beautiful design, and we have created a student ministry that encourages students to learn and grow in all these areas over three years. Head to our About page to take a deeper look at Grace Church’s vision.

Courses

We want to equip our student and 20s group during this special season in their lives to grow and develop. We have designed a two-year rolling programme that takes a look at each of the five themes outlined on the pyramid above – God, Self, Neighbour, Creation and Spirit. Over 2020/21 we looked at the centrality of God’s love through Jesus in The Prodigal God by Tim Keller, living in Christian community in Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the idea of engaging with our emotions in Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Pete Scazzero. Over the summer term, we practised resting together which centred around food, fun and games!

When not in a global pandemic, our student group normally meets on Sunday afternoons around 4pm for a cuppa and a conversation. At the moment, due to restrictions we are meeting on Zoom and then gathering in person when we can. Please find the details here.

Belonging

Our Students and 20’s meet every week and is a great way to connect with others at a similar age and stage. In addition, we would also love to welcome you into the wider Grace Church family. Community Groups are the primary place for this, with students and 20s experiencing belonging, exploring faith and expressing God’s love for those around them.

Worshipping and volunteering on Sundays also provides excellent opportunities to build relationships, hear teaching, worship and serve across the ages and stages of the church. Finally, keep an eye out for additional ministries such as Alpha and STEPS which many have found transformative during their time at with us.
