Christmas Services at Grace Church Wanstead
People often wonder if there is a God and if we could ever get to know him. The great news of Christmas is that God has really visited us through Jesus Christ so that we can know him.
Come and find out more at one of our Christmas services:
Family Carol Service, 16th December 11:15am
Children and Tots’ Carol Service, Christmas Eve 4:30pm
Christmas Day 11:15am
For those already following Jesus we have a variety of meetings, small groups and Bible studies to support you and encourage you to get to know Jesus better. Please see our “What’s On” page for more details.

How to reboot your life?
Sometimes life can feel like a computer that isn’t working very well. And it’s frustrating. Maybe life hasn’t worked out as you’d hoped, and you’re in a rut, or even a midlife crisis. Perhaps you’ve got too many tasks and the system has crashed, or there are things in the memory you regret. And you long to start over. If only you could reboot your life and wipe the slate clean and start again. But where’s the button? How do you do that? Is it even possible? Jesus says it is. It’s something God can do for us.
On the 9th of March, we would like to invite you to join us for a talk entitled, ‘How to reboot your life’. There will be an opportunity to discuss and ask questions afterwards. Come one, come all!

A few days ago, a colleague and I did a Q&A at work. She suggested that it was turning into a bit of a debate. “Which one’s Trump?”, one joker shouted. I laughed out loud!
But lots of people aren’t laughing.
All around the world, more and more people are fed up. Millions of Americans are fed up with politics. Millions of Britons are fed up – either of the EU or of leaving it!
Why are we so discontented?
Because behind all this, there’s a deeper moral discontentment. According to a Gallup poll, 86% of people rate the state of moral values in the UK as “fair” or “poor”. 83% think it’s getting worse.
Because society’s morals used to be grounded in Christianity. Jesus gives us both moral teaching, and the way to be forgiven when we don’t live up to it. Drop Christianity, and our society’s traditional morality no longer makes any sense.
But our consciences tell us that we need a moral foundation. Without it, we get a gut feeling that something about society isn’t right.
What should we do with this gut feeling? After all, some of its effects are pretty ugly…
Our church is running an event called “What’s gone wrong?” It’s on 8pm Thursday, 24th November at Starbucks Wanstead. We’re looking at why people are so fed up and how listening to God can give us hope and vision. Come along – I hope to see you there!
