Welcome

Welcome to the website for Grace Church Wanstead. Our vision is to glorify God by being a Bible-centred, welcoming church family seeking to reach out with the gospel of Jesus in the Wanstead area.

Jesus is unique in human history, claiming to be God and living up to that claim. He defeated death and alone can put us right with God. We would love to help you find out more about him – who he was, what he came to do, and what it means to follow him.

We have a variety of meetings, small groups and Bible studies to support you and encourage you to get to know Jesus better. We also run the Christianity Explored course, which is seven informal sessions designed to help you investigate who Jesus is and why it matters. Please contact David Gibbs (minister@gracechurchwanstead.org) for more information.

You can also find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/GraceChurchWanstead1/) and Instagram (@gracechurchwanstead). Sermon videos are posted to our Facebook page each week.

Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6

About

About Grace Church Wanstead

Our Vision

Our Vision is to glorify God by being a Bible centred, welcoming church family seeking to reach out with the gospel of Jesus in the Wanstead area.

In order to do this, we are committed to:

Listening to God’s word, the Bible

If we are to glorify God we must listen to him, through his inspired, infallible, sufficient word the Bible. So Bible teaching will be at the centre of everything we do.

Depending on God in prayer

We are weak human beings and therefore must be dependent on God in prayer. The Bible encourages us to pray.

Reaching out with the good news

Jesus commanded his followers to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”. We are particularly called to do this in the Wanstead area, by verbally proclaiming the Good News of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Building one another up, and growing

We are committed to serving and building one another up in love so that we continue to grow together in maturity in our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.

SUNDAY

CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAMME (CDP)
10-10:45 Wanstead House

CDP aims to equip us to better live as a follower of Jesus in a society increasingly hostile to his teachings. We look more deeply at key Christian truths, as well as seeking to train ourselves to be more effective Christians in the world. The format is interactive with plenty of time for discussion.
During the Christian Discipleship Programme we run a traditional Sunday School with groups for ages 3-7 and 8-11.

MAIN SERVICE
11:15-12:30 Wanstead House

A simple informal hour-long service with songs, prayers a sermon and a kid’s talk which everyone can be involved in (there is a crèche). We also hope this might be a good place for people who are not used to church to come.

CHURCH LUNCH
