This week at grace umhlanga

Wednesday, 23 January

Lectio Divina: 07:30-08:00 - Lectio Divina (Latin for sacred readings) is simply an ancient form of prayer and scripture reading. A modern way of describing this contemplative, intimate prayer would be ‘Listening Prayer’. Making Lectio Divina a regular part of your week gives you the perfect opportunity to practice the spiritual disciplines of silence and solitude. Contact Karen Lombard

Grace Kids is a fun, safe place for kids to discover THE ADVENTURE OF FOLLOWING JESUS. We use creative, relevant, and age-appropriate Bible teaching, high-energy worship, and dedicated small group leaders to ensure kids enjoy their hour on a Sunday. At Grace we understand that there is more to leading children to Jesus than just Sundays. That's why we intentionally partner with parents and families to help kids discover and develop a meaningful relationship with Jesus. 

Grace Kids runs every Sunday during all our services 07:30 | 09:15 | 10:55 | 17:30. All children are signed in and out of Grace Kids on a Sunday by their parents and are allocated a unique number. In the event that a parent needs to be contacted during a service, your child's number will appear on the screen in the main auditorium. For parents of infants age 0-12 months, our auditorium is equipped with a Parents Room with a glass window so parents can see and hear the service. Otherwise, check out what's available for every age up to Grade 6.

Creche: 1-3 years

This facility is staffed by dedicated volunteers, who will care for your little one with their safety being our priority.

Pre-Primary: Gr 00-R

Our preschoolers enjoy a structured time of worship and story time followed by a fun activity to reinforce what they have learned. The focus in this age group is 'God made me, God loves me, and Jesus whats to be my friend forever.'

Primary: Gr 1-6

Our primary school children get together for high-energy, action-packed worship and creative, relevant teaching time. This is followed by age-appropriate small group time that reinforces the lesson led by our amazing Grace Kids volunteers.
