We’re a group of people who worship God, encourage each other in following Jesus and reach out to those who do not know him in many different ways.
Whether it’s your first time or you’ve recently become a part of the family, we want to welcome you and help you look for ways to get more connected and involved. You can do that by browsing through our website. Enjoy!

Grace Church Yate

We are a group of Christians from many different backgrounds and walks of life, each with a different story to tell, but united by our experience of God's love. Before we ever gave him a thought, God loved us and sent his Son, Jesus, to be the rescuer. Jesus lived the life we should have lived, died the death we deserved and rose in triumph from the grave - to give life and hope to all who rely upon him.

CTR have always had a heart for mission work, at home and abroad. The Candle was developed to be able to reach into the local community of Yate and Chipping Sodbury.

Where appropriate there will be a close collaboration with the local statutory agencies, charities and societal groups.
