Reaching Our Community at Grace Church

Reaching Our Community at Grace Church

We believe the church should impact the wider community, believing that God cares for every individual.

Passionate about reaching our community, we seek to play our part in the building of God’s kingdom and the making of disciples.

Jesus said that He brought good news to the poor, that He was sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free (Luke 4:18-19). As His followers, we seek to care for and reach those who are in our community through a range of social action projects and events.


Alpha is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith.

Alpha is for anybody exploring life’s bigger questions. Alpha is a friendly and informal series of evenings, usually centred around cake and coffee, where there is an opportunity to ask the questions you have about life, God and the Bible.

Alpha is usually run three times a year, in September/October, January/February and April/May. You can find out more on our Alpha page.

Guest Speakers

Guest Speakers are invited to come and talk on an aspect of the Christian faith. Whilst visitors are welcome any Sunday, the Sundays with a Guest Speaker are especially for those new to church who want to find out more.

You can check out when our next guest speaker is coming here.

Social Action

We have initiated and run a number of projects which support those in our community:

  • Baby Basics - providing a Moses basket filled with the essentials for the first three months for mums in need in our community
  • Little Acorns - providing a term time toddler group on Bemerton Heath
  • Pacemakers - providing friendship and entertainment in a number of care homes in Salisbury

All of the above are led and run by teams of volunteers from our Grace Church family.

I believe the local church is the hope of the world.
