What can I expect?

What should i wear?

Most people who attend are usually dressed in a casual manner, for example, a t-shirt and jeans. 

what happens in a service?

When you walk into the venue you will be greeted by our welcome team who are able to assist you with finding a seat if needed . In our morning services, we begin with a time of worship, then some notices. At this point, our kids and youth go to their safe, vibrant and engaging environments. We then gather again for worship and then there will be around 35 minutes of inspirational teaching from one of our team. 

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week and at Grace, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our kids programmes the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Grace kids experience. Our kids and youth programmes are offered at every Grace service for kids ages infant through to year 13.

do you have any events for newcomers?

We periodically run connection events to give those who are new an opportunity to find out more. Email us to sign up for the next event running at your campus.

After our services, we have different spaces for newcomers to connect and find out more about Grace. We also stay for tea and coffee, so do hang around to say "hi"!
