The story of Jesus
2,000 years ago Jesus Christ of Nazareth started a movement that has revolutionised human history. It was and is a movement that centred upon the message of God’s grace. Here’s how one of the earliest followers of Jesus described the heart of this message …
“God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! We’re being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people he can be proud of, energetic in goodness” (Titus 2:11-14, MSG)
Jesus lived a perfect life, died a death in our place and rose again in order to show us grace - God’s undeserved and unconditional love.
Grace Church Cardiff was founded by a small community of people who love South Cardiff and have been captivated by God’s grace. It was born to share Jesus with our neighbourhoods and the nations.
The story of Grace
When Jesus wanted to describe how this movement would grow to His closest friends, He used a picture …
“It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade. " (Mark 4:31-32)
Back in the Summer of 2010, inspired by this picture, a couple of us began to dream about planting the good news of Jesus in the South of Cardiff, and watching it become a vibrant Church community - a place where people would meet Jesus for themselves, become part of His family and find shelter in His grace. Over 7 years this dream grew, and so at the end of 2017 we gathered a group of like-minded people to join us on the adventure of starting this new Church for South Cardiff.
We have now begun to gather weekly in Grangetown to worship Jesus and live our lives as a diverse family of faith. Why not join us!? Whoever you are and whatever your background we would love to welcome you!
