Faith in action

We’ve recently passed our ‘6 month milestone’ since the launch of Common Grace – hooray! – and so we are taking a moment to celebrate all that God has done so far, and to prayerfully strategise moving forward.
In just 6 months, we have had the opportunity to play our part in significant ways like:
And we are just getting started in this important work of seeing Christians become a real force for justice in Australia.
We have much to celebrate and thank God for, but more than anything, we want to celebrate YOU!
We want to thank you for standing with us in these early days and sharing our vision of a diverse community of Christians who come from right across the breadth of the church, all passionate about Jesus and justice. You have shown us that there is strength in unity, as we have all determined to focus on that which we have in common (even though there are many differences between us) for the common good of our world. #UnityIsBeautiful!
And to celebrate YOU, we’ve created a new section on our website where we can see and hear from you… and we’re pretty excited about seeing all of your faces! It will only take a couple of minutes of your time, so add your story to paint the real picture of Common Grace - Jesus' people from churches across the country standing together - www.commongrace.org.au/ourstories.
We’re also asking for your help as we look towards the future. To put it bluntly: we want to know what you think. We’ve created a painless, fast survey and we’d be really grateful if you could give us just a few minutes of your time to give us your insights so that we can learn more about you, and go forward and get better. Please tell us what you think here!
