LOVING WHERE WE LIVE
At Grace Church we're keen to play our own part in the Bolnore and Haywards Heath community, helping those in need and just getting to now those we live amongst. As a church, we are delighted to be involved in village organisations - hosting the beavers/cubs/scouts Christmas services, volunteering at the school and having our minister on the governing body there. But we are also involved further afield, running services at Oakwood Court residential home where we love getting to know the residents. Here are some ways you might get involved in the local community. Click the grey links for more information.
