Simon and Rachel Dowdy lead Grace Church in Dulwich, southeast London.
Grace Church is a church community that meets in the heart of Dulwich. Their aim is to explore the message of Jesus Christ and the significance of his life, death and resurrection in a way that is accessible to all. They are an Anglican church, although not a parish church, and welcome anyone regardless of his or her stage of Christian understanding.
Simon and Rachel have three children: Hannah, Jack and Jemima.
‘Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain’ 1 Corinthians 15:58
We have started preaching through Ecclesiastes during the autumn and against a backdrop of ‘vanity’ it has been wonderful to be reminded that the work of the Lord, who rose from the dead never to die again, is not in vain.
We are grateful for Christian camps over the summer for our children. Please continue to pray for them to seek first his kingdom and for distinctive living at university and school. Rachel’s mother moved to sheltered housing in Manchester over the summer where she is just 20 minutes from Rachel’s sister, which should make it easier for the family to provide for her long-term care needs.
