A blossoming congregation is having to up sticks because it has almost doubled in size in just one year.

For four years, members of Grace Church Thame have met at The Guide HQ in Southern Road every Sunday morning. But the contemporary style of service has attracted more than 50 new members, meaning the Southern Road venue is now too small for the group of 90.

From now on, the church will hold its weekly Sunday services at Lord Williams’s Lower School in Oxford Road.

Church pastor Anthony Taylor said: “We are so excited by the growth that we have seen happening at Grace Church Thame these last few years.

“Wherever people are on their faith journey they are finding they can come to Grace Church and explore the Christian faith at their own pace as well as enjoying love, acceptance, support and friendship from everyone else who attends.”

The first service at the secondary school will be on Sunday, May 4 at 10.30am and Anthony says all are welcome.

Grace Church Thame has been part of the community since 1999 and regularly gets involved through events like the Marriage Preparation Course and The Alpha Course.
