Grace Community has been on a journey of growing our vibrant Christian community since 1991. We participate as part of the wider Christian Church Body on the New South Wales' Central Coast. We are an eclectic group that love to fellowship and worship the Lord together, sharing the love of Jesus to the wider community.
We meet as a whole community and as part of smaller home churches on Sunday mornings as well as during the week where we in smaller groups gather face to face and on zoom to pray for each other and our community. Please see the upcoming section on our home page for more details on locations for our celebration services and activities.
We are live streaming our services through our Facebook Group. Edited versions of our services are available on our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel
