We love having new guests join us on Sundays.
Here’s what you can expect if you come along.
We meet each Sunday at 937 Bourke St, Waterloo. Our service begins at 10am, but we’ve got a great coffee to enjoy beforehand, so feel free to come along a bit earlier, meet people from Grace City and get acquainted with our building before the service starts.
There will be people before and after the service hanging out over food and coffee. We have a large cafe-style area that you can find a space in, whether that be by yourself, with your friends and family, or with some new friends you meet there! The cafe is open from 9.30am and continues after the service.
Singing & Praying
As a church we love singing to God and praying to Him. We typically will sing a bunch of songs at the beginning of a service and a couple more near the end. Someone will also lead the church in prayer at different points in the service. With both singing and praying, you are welcome to join in or just listen, whichever you are most comfortable with.
Bible Reading and Preaching
Each week we read a section of the bible (Typically taking 2-3 mins to read) and then one of our pastors will preach based off the section that was read. Sermons vary in length but average about 35 mins long.
Here are some services and help you can find on a Sunday:
Children can be dropped off before the service at City Kids. City Kids runs the same amount of time as church, in the same building. Children will be looked after by our friendly leaders and have fun playing games, doing craft, singing/dancing and learning something from the bible.
Welcome Desk & Friendly Helpers
If you need help, have questions about Grace City, need to find something, or just want someone to talk to, then hit up our volunteers at the welcome desk. There will also be people at key points throughout the building to make sure everyone is being looked after and having a good time. They can be identified by their Grace City lanyards.
Someone to Talk and Pray with
If you want to talk and pray with one our leaders about something significant going on in your life, we can always make someone available for you to have a private meeting with. Just ask at the welcome desk to be connected with someone.
What if you want to just stay anonymous?
While there will be opportunity on a Sunday for you to connect more with us by letting us know your contact information, this is purely optional. We have people from all sorts of backgrounds and church experiences. We understand that some people just want to visit without “jumping all in”. That’s totally ok to do!
