WHAT TO EXPECT ON SUNDAYS

Stepping into a church for the first time can take a bit of courage, but we’re here to help. Dress as formal or informal as you like – wear what’s comfortable. If you are a parent or caregiver with babies or toddlers, we welcome you.

Having children included during the service is a normal part of church life for us, but there is a crèche room available should the need arise.

The people are pretty relaxed, easy going, and our Sunday services are structured. This helps all of us to worship well. Here’s what a typical service looks like:

PASTOR: LUKE SHELDRAKE

Thanks for stopping by our website. In early 2018 my wife and I, along with our three children (now five), made the decision to uproot from the UK to move to Tairawhiti / Gisborne. We are super thankful to live in such a beautiful part of the world and for the friends we have made here over the last 6 years.

At Grace we seek to worship God as He has directed us in his perfect Word, the Bible, seeking to understand both who God is and what He has done for us. We warmly invite you to join us for worship as we celebrate the good news of the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. We look forward to meeting you in person.

  • A greeting, a call to worship, and a prayer
  • We regularly confess our sin, and hear God’s assurance of our forgiveness
  • We celebrate the Lord’s Table weekly (Communion)
  • There is a time set aside for a children’s talk including a reading from the Westminster Shorter Catechism
  • Through song we praise God, expressing our hearts and gratitude
  • An expository sermon is preached in order to explain and apply the Bible
  • We conclude with a prayer and blessing, followed by morning tea together

While meeting together on the Lord’s Day (Sunday) is the highest priority for us here at Grace, we also meet together on Thursday Evenings for a time of Prayer and fellowship together.
