Coronavirus

Welcome to GCC Online during COVID-19 - HD 720p from Tim Ambrose on Vimeo.

We're delighted that the government are now encouraging churches to meet together again. We would love to do that, but so that we do it safely and responsibly we're taking our time in order to meet the goverment regulations AND to keep together as a church family. As part of that, we're working to get the internet at the church building in order to be able to 'livestream' services. Our hope is to be getting a mix of physical meetings in Newhall Street and virtual meetings via our Youtube and Facebook by September.

So for now we will still be pre-recording sermons and putting together a 'service' ('Grace @ Home) that you can use personally if you are on your own or as a couple or a family or as housemates ... whatever works for you. The new situation is that you can also invite a few people round for an 'extended family church' OUTDOORS (since groups of up to 6 from different households can meet outdoors). Why not give that a go?

And if you're not a Christian or you're trying to reconnect with God and church, you're very welcome to join us for any of our 'online' services which are linked to below. You can also contact us via the contact page

Below are our services. You can follow the prayers and the readings, listen to the songs (sing or hum if you can/want to ... or just listen to the words) and watch recorded messages (on Vimeo/Youtube) from the Bible:
