23 St John's Road
When we acquired our new church building in October 2008 we decided to rename it Grace Centre. It is hard to find a name that conveys to the total outsider everything we do in our church building but the word 'grace' is an important one and we need to remind ourselves what it means to us.
Grace is an undeserved gift and salvation comes as a gift from God not as a result of our good works. But God’s grace does not stop at our salvation, He gives more grace (James 4:6), that grace abounds (Romans 5:20), it is sufficient for our every need (2 Corinthians 12:9) and in it we can grow and develop (2 Peter 3:18). Every time we enter the Grace Centre we should be reminded of God’s goodness towards us. It is our prayer and expectation that in our church building many people will receive the same undeserved gift and be saved by God’s grace.
"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God: not of works lest any man should boast."
* Please note there is limited car parking space behind Grace Centre. On Sunday mornings these are reserved for those with mobility problems. There is some on-road parking on St John's Road. Pay and display car parks in Bath Street and Cambridge Road are only a short walk away but on Sundays there is a charge between 12noon and 6.00pm. We actively encourage those attending the 9.15am service to park in St John's Road car park as it is free at that time.
