Who we are

Grace Church Worcester Park is a relaxed, friendly, evangelical church, where people from all walks of life gather together for relevant Bible teaching applied to our everyday lives, to sing songs of praise and to support and care for each other.

We want to offer the people of Worcester Park a chance to take a closer look at what it means to know God through faith in Jesus Christ as well as to serve the community in practical ways. With a Sunday service and midweek groups, there are many ways to be involved.

Lots of children come to Grace Church and every Sunday we have lots of fun activities for them to do in Children's Church. There is a creche too. Click here for more details...
