Grace Community Church Launches

A new gospel community in Sovereign Harbour is lauched on Sunday 21st January. The launch service starts at 10am. The church plant is in partnership with Kings Church Hampden Park and will be called Grace Community Church. Carl and Chrissie will be leading the church plant with a growing team of leaders. The vision is to glorify Jesus as we make disciples, build and transform community and live on mission.

We pray that God will unite us together as we become a new community of God’s grace, where people encounter the love of God, the saving power of Jesus and his gospel, and whole life transformation through the Holy Spirit, here on the harbour and the wider area.

We value the prayers of the wider Christian community as we step into this new venture.

Thank you,


Team Leader Grace Community Church
