If you ask any member of our church what God has done in their life you may be surprised. God is in the habit of turning lives around for the better. The exciting truth is that God continues to mould and shape us…..He has not finished with any of us yet. As a church, we see Discipleship as key to growing into the person God created us to be. Discipleship can be run through one to one mentoring or through relational groups.
Our new members courses are a great way to meet other new people within the church and find out more about Gracemead at the same time. It is run over the course of 2-3 Sundays after the main service, and lunch is usually provided for you as well. It is a good opportunity to get plugged into the Church, learn what forms our core beliefs and get to know us better. Feel free to ask plenty of questions too. At the end of the course, you can then make the decision to become a member of Gracemead and we will receive you into the Gracemead family at the earliest opportunity.
Alpha is run a couple of times each year from Gracemead Church in partnership with our friends at Kings Community Church. Alpha is a really great introduction to the Christian faith for people who are seeking, and also Christians who have been in the faith a while. It is an 11-week course in a very relaxed setting. We start each session with a meal together and enjoy meeting one another. We then go into a time of watching a short video clip covering a different subject each week, followed by a time for group discussion & questions around the table. This is the perfect discipleship course to invite friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues to.
The Freedom course is a unique opportunity for believers to grow from their personal experience of salvation and learn how to live in the true freedom that Jesus has won for each of us; “Freedom” isn’t just for new Christians but for all Christians.
