Myths from the Margins - Saturday 9th July

In which singer songwriter Gavin Mart and musical friends share some of their tales with us and experiences of spirituality through their music. Gavin is based in Llandudno in north Wales, where he runs an award-winning social enterprise in a brewery!

Grace barbecue - Saturday 11th June

All welcome to the Grace barbecue - bring a bottle and something to cook on the barbecue. It will be helpful if you can let us know that you're coming via, so we have some idea of numbers.

Landmarks - Saturday 14th May

Come and join us at Grace as we celebrate the gift of the Spirit at Pentecost.

Lighting-up Time - Saturday 9th April

What makes you 'light up' in spontaneous worship? How do our lives and actions 'light up' God? Who's lighting who? Let your little light shine at Grace - all welcome. This is a cafe format service so drinkable contributions will be appreciated to assist us in lighting up.

UPDATE: Saturday March 12th: The Devil's Passion

There will be no Grace as such on March 12th. Instead we encourage you to see 'The Devil's Passion' (see below for ticket information). Grace will be running the cafe after the play, from 9pm to 10.30pm, and we would be delighted to see you then for drinks, nibbles and conversation.

Saturday March 12th: The Devil's Passion

A theatrical event hosted by St. Mary's in the church. This will be a ticketed event £10/£5, book online here or for telephone bookings ring 0800 411 8881. Grace will host a cafe in the Polygon after the event.

Lent events

We have a Grace tradition of doing something extra during Lent - meeting more often for meals and discussion, reading a book together, or a Lent blog. This year our Lent activities are as follows:

Monday February 22nd 8pm

Meal and discussion
Venue: 23 Disraeli Road W5 5HS

Monday February 29th 8pm

Meal and discussion
Venue: 23 Disraeli Road W5 5HS

Saturday March 12th:

This would normally be a Grace service. However, St Mary's are hosting a theatrical production 7.30-9pm in the church - The Devil's Passion by Justin Butcher.

This will be a ticketed event £10/£5, see St Mary's website for booking details.

Grace will be running a cafe space at 9pm in the Polygon after the event, for ourselves and for the audience. There will not be a Grace service as such, but we will probably run the 'Grace TV' video wall and we encourage you to come and hang out even if you don't want to see the performance.

Monday March 21st 8pm

Meal and discussion
Venue: 77 St Pauls Close W5 3JX

Discussions are based around 40 Temptations by Ian Adams.

Please feel free to come along to any or all of the above - however it will help with the catering if you can email us beforehand at info[at]freshworship[dot]org.

Ashes to ashes by numbers - Saturday 13th February

A communion-by-numbers for Lent. Not a Bowie tribute service but we couldn't resist the reference!

iii Cafe - Saturday 9th January

This Saturday join us at Grace from 8pm in a café style service. iii will be led by Flock (aka Chris Read and Harry Baker) with their unique contemplative blend of music and spoken word reflections interspersed with pauses for prayer. What better way to start the year?

Nine - Saturday 12th December

Our annual advent service based around the nine lessons and carols. Come and join us as members of the community lead us with their interpretation of one of the readings.

Silent Communion - Saturday 14th November

An experiment in worship - If communication goes beyond words and speech, how do we reach out to others and God and can we extend our ways of worship?

Who? - Saturday 10th October

Who are your greatest influences? Spiritual, secular, contemporary, ancient? Who made you you? Come and discuss them over food and drink in the Grace café. Maybe we can swap influences, find new people to look up, new angles on those we already thought we knew. All welcome.

Fresh! - Saturday 12th September

What should we change when our context changes? How do we honour the past while speaking to the future? How do we speak when our words have changed their meanings? Have you ever seen a real owl?

Welcome to the new Grace website!

The new site is phone-friendly and has updated content in the About section. It links directly to our Facebook, Twitter and Flickr feeds. The archive section is not yet complete - it takes quite a while to reformat over 20 years of material! If you need a particular archive item that is not yet available on this site, contact us at info[at]freshworship[dot]org

We apologise for any other glitches, such as links that don't lead anywhere yet, and unsatisfactory bits of typography, which we will sort out in due course.

The colours of the menu bars are mostly taken from Adam's early Grace sites 1997-2005, as a kind of brand continuity. They also give a nod to the rainbow jersey, since so many people in Grace are into cycling these days ;)
