Preaching Calendar 

Here's what's coming up at GPC this year:

To be jubliant is "feeling or expressing great happpiness and triumph". As the people of God we should be jubliant! Jubliant comes from the concept of Jubliee - a festival with major financial and social implications. Let's take a deeper look at what Jubilee was all about and learn more about how to live out of our heritage to be jubiliant Christians and share this with others around us!


Through the lens sermons

Life through a gospel lens: 
1 Corinthians

The Corinthian church is well known as a church with many problems, like which food to eat and when, having sex with the wrong people, and who is better than who.  So how does this help us today?  The focus that we will hold as we read through this book is how to see every area of life through the lens of the gospel.  As we look through the challenges which this church faced and Paul’s warnings and guidance we derive a lot of our fundamental Christology (who Jesus is) and ecclesiology (how to be the Church) which also helps us to navigate not only our problems, but how to be the gathered people of God today in Glendowie. 





Christ Triumphs

Christ Triumphs

In a highly pressured society that forces us to work and live in a way faster than ever before, we all suffer from deep seated issues that we often don’t take the time to address.   In this series we look at how common issues like people pleasing, perfectionism and anxiety can be overcome by the lifestyle that Jesus led.  Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to transform us as we fully accept the triumph of Christ’s grace and power over our inadequacies and ground ourselves in our identity in Jesus.




Is this pandemic a sign of the end times? Probably not but let’s take a look!

The world seems chaotic at present.  Many preachers have many interpretations that they put on today’s events claiming that they are fulfilment of prophecy.  We will take a biblically grounded approach and investigate what the bible says will happen in the end times as we make some sense of the difficult and weird parts of Revelation.  We hope that this will lay a basic foundation for understanding end times prophecies and for discerning and discarding misleading preaching on this topic.


Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 9.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will be wearing a Welcome lanyard.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after our service. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.

Our Service

The main service begins at 9.30am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. One of our leaders will give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. There is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

GPC Kids for children from birth to age 11 (school year 6)
GPC Youth for young people aged 11+

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go into our church lounge for GPC Kids/ GPC Youth.  You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. Whilst you are dropping your kids off at their groups, we pause to take time to chat to someone sitting near or next to us, giving folk a chance to come back before the sermon begins.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.


Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team. 

Other Ministries

We also run the following ministries:

  • Men's Ministries
  • Women's Ministries
  • Music Team Ministry
We hope that whoever you are, you will feel at home at our church.
