Abundant Grace International Fellowship

Abundant Grace is an international, interdenominational church with people from many countries, cultures and traditions. Empowered by God’s Spirit, we weave the diversity of our congregation into a strong, colorful fabric of unity and joy, believing that Christ unites us to transcend and transform our differences.

On weekends we meet in various celebrations of worship and fellowship—including services for youth and children. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Communion) monthly in our Sunday afternoon services (3pm & 5pm), and weekly in our Sunday morning (11am) service. We gather daily in homes, offices and coffee shops to pray, reflect on Scripture, and to help each other to pursue wholeness and love in our lives. We encourage everyone to connect into one of our many small groups (Life Groups for adults, Waypoints for youth, other small groups for men, women and Alpha), where we have the opportunity to express in practical ways what it means to be a part of God’s family.
