Why are we here?

Grace Church is a new church seeking to share the good news of God’s love with our community in Sandbach.

Grace Church was founded as a plant from Wheelock Heath Baptist Church, as part of Target 25, a vision to plant new churches in South Cheshire to serve the local communities and share the good news of Jesus.

Grace Church started as a group of Christians from WHBC began meeting together in November 2017, with the aim of a public launch of the new church on Easter Sunday.

On this page you can see more about why Grace Church and Wheelock Heath Baptist Church are here: our mission, core values, and some of our aims for the coming years.

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ in South Cheshire and to the ends of the earth to the glory of God. This is based on the Great Commission Jesus gave to his church in Matthew 28:18-20.

To make disciples of Jesus Christ: There are thousands of people in South Cheshire who do not yet know Jesus. We want to share the good news of Jesus with people so they can trust Jesus as their Saviour and then grow as his disciples (followers).

In South Cheshire: We recognise that our calling is both to the immediate area of our churches, but also to the many towns and villages in which our people live and work.

And to the ends of the earth: Our chief focus is in South Cheshire. But Jesus has given us the privilege to be part of his global mission. We do this through giving, prayers and sending people to serve the nations.

To the glory of God: The ultimate aim of everything we do is that God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit be praised by more people.
