JOIN US FOR WEEK 4 AT THE VENUE (SUN 28TH) AS WE BEGIN THE ADVENT SEASON
Socially distanced (1m+) seats available via eventbrite. Otherwise, no booking required.
Every Sunday we gather as church family from Stoke-on-Trent and parts of Newcastle-under-Lyme. Although, the way we get together looks slightly different each week.
On the FIRST SUNDAY of every month, we encourage the church to gather in community groups in different homes in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme. One group will meet in the hospitality area at our venue from 10:30am.
On the SECOND and FOURTH SUNDAY of every month, we have one BIG gathering of the whole church. These Sundays include specific activities for our children (GRACEKIDS), a time of sung worship and some bible based teaching.
On the THIRD SUNDAY of every month we gather together at the venue, but around one big table for FREE breakfast/brunch, communion, worship and a short family (all age) message. You need to book a seat at the table for this by clicking here.
If we have a FITH SUNDAY in a month, we join together for all age praise and prayer at our church venue. This will give us a chance to celebrate God together with music and an opportunity talk to God through some creative and traditional styles of prayer.
CLICK ON THE LINK TO OUR 6 MONTH PLANNER FOR ALL THE DATES YOU NEED TO KNOW FROM NOV '21 TO APRIL '22.
At each of our larger gatherings we make sure that we can accommodate anyone that would like to socially distance from others. All we ask is to let us know ahead of time by booking a seat in the "socially distanced" section of the hall, through Eventbrite using the buttons above.
How to find us
Our main church venue is in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. Follow this google maps link for directions: https://goo.gl/maps/b34DrM8HTrUc3kT98
Alternatively, our address is:
Grace Church Stoke on Trent (Unit B)
Metro Business Park
If you have a physical impairment and/or use a wheel chair, you shouldn't find any difficulties accessing our venue. We have parking for those with a disabled badge right outside the main entrance and a slight ramp leading from the car park into the building. Inside, we can easily move our seating around to accommodate space for walking aids and wheel chairs. Our venue is also all on one level with no significant thresholds to cross. A unisex fully accessible toilet is available should you need to use facilitates with the regulation supports and adaptations.
Like many churches we began gathering online during 2020. Head over to our YouTube channel most Sundays to join us and say "hi" in the comments! We go live from 10:25am.
On the second and fourth week of the month we offer free GraceKids activities for the following age ranges:
0-1 years (self service creche facilities)
2-4 years (Little Biscuits*)
5-8 years (Guilders*)
9-12 years (Glazers*)
Each group is optional for parents and carers to utilise (there is no pressure to send them if they'd rather stay with you).
Groups marked with a (*) are all staffed by volunteers who have been through our safe recruitment process, completed an enhanced DBS check and received some basic safeguarding training.
We have a very small number teens and have recently begun something of a youth group which meets at least once a month.
All our children and young people are unique. Some have additional or special educations needs (SEN). If your child enjoys making noise, is very active during meetings, or even presents some behavioural challenges, THEY ARE WELCOME here. We want you and your children to feel at home with us. If there are things that we can do to be helpful, just let us know!
It might be good to know that we're also a church with some foster carers and adopters. If that is part of your story, you will find like-minded people at Grace Church.
Grace Church takes its responsibilities to safeguard children and adults very seriously. For more information about our safeguarding commitment follow this link.
