What we believe

We are called "Grace Church" for a reason. God's grace is his extravagant, undeserved kindness to us in Jesus. And God's grace changes everything:

  • it restores us to the relationship we were made for
  • it unites us and empowers us to be a new kind of community
  • and it ignites us with compassion to reach out to a needy world

At Grace Church we seek to be a place where God's grace is received and lived out. We'd love to welcome you some time.

Who's who

Meet the team

Andrew Latimer

Rev Dr Andrew Latimer

Minister

Andrew spent a good chunk of his childhood messing around on boats, and therefore he’s felt very at home working for 5 years at St Peter’s Barge, and since 2015 in Maritime Greenwich. He loves Jesus, his wife Josie, their 4 daughters, hanging out with friends, over-analysing films, and seeing the English language used correctly. He does all his own stunts.

Andrew Sach

Rev Dr Andrew Sach

Minister

Andrew serves part-time at Grace Church Greenwich, and part-time as a tutor on the Cornhill Training Course, helping to train other preachers. He has been a regular speaker at university missions and is the co-author of several books with decreasingly-imaginative titles: Dig Deeper (2005), Dig Even Deeper (2010) and Dig Deeper into the Gospels (2015). He has a background in science that began with an explosives factory in his parents’ garage aged 15 and ended with a PhD on why two ears are better than one. He enjoys playing Bach on the piano and attempting to pour nice shapes in his coffee with frothed milk. He has 8 godchildren.

Fiona Mahendran

Fiona Mahendran

Women's worker

Fiona joined Grace Church in September 2020. Having studied law, European languages, and politics, Fiona worked for an in-house legal team in a global oil and gas company. During this time, she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Saviour, at her then local FIEC church, and subsequently served with the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship for 6 years.

Fiona brings her passion for Jesus, eagerness to work with women as they bear witness to his gospel truths in every inch of their lives, and her love of baking and picnics to Greenwich!

Imogen Dancer

Imogen Dancer

Church Co-ordinator

Immy joined Grace Church when she came to Greenwich to study Events Management at university in 2017. She now works part-time on the staff team as Church Co-ordinator. Immy enjoys Autumn, walking, board games, pick-n-mix, rainy days and time spent with friends and family. Immy is married to James and they are expecting their first child in March 2021.

Sam James

Sam James

Youth & Children Worker, Music Co-ordinator

Sam heard the gospel when was 18, he’d never been exposed to christianity before then and it changed his life forever. He went to become a jazz pianist in London and married a dancer. He and Eva are still doing their best impression of La La Land (without the dodgy ending) and have a daughter called Naomi. Sam heads up the children’s ministry at Grace Church and loves to see God’s Word change other peoples’ lives as well as his own.

Jonathan Pick

Jonathan Pick

Ministry Trainee

Jono was a part of Grace Church as a music student before joining the team as a Ministry Trainee. He finds it a real privilege to get to know Jesus better, and to help others do the same. He enjoys eating food, playing Fifa, and riding his bike (when it’s not too rainy!).

Paulo Carvalho

Paulo Carvalho

Ministry Trainee

Paulo is the best portuguese trainee that Grace Church has had in years. He is also the first one. He reminds with nostalgia his university years, when he started to experience the transforming power of Jesus’ words.

He’s a Biology graduate from Coimbra (home town). He’s a ornithophile (bird-lover), he loves his fixedgear and will take any opportunity to tell you how great Portugal is.

Niamh Sanders

Niamh Sanders

Ministry Trainee

Niamh’s a ministry trainee and gets a lot of joy out of chatting about Jesus as her job. She’s a classical viola player by trade and she loves to laugh (particularly at a good viola joke!) Despite her Irish upbringing she hates the rain and doesn’t own an umbrella.

James Dancer

James Dancer

Ministry Trainee

James was saved in 2016 whilst hearing the Bible taught at Grace Church Greenwich, and is now serving on the staff team as a Ministry Trainee. James’ musical background as a conservatoire graduate and secondary school music teacher means you will usually find him drumming in the church band, or constantly tapping on the nearest surface he can find.
