Jan and I moved here in April 2015 in order to plant Grace Church. We are from San Jose, California, USA, where I pastored for many years. We have two grown children who live in California. Our passion is to understand and experience and share with others all that Jesus promises to be to us as Savior, Lord, and heart-satisfying Treasure – and to lead a home group which is passionately pursuing this. We would love to have you join us.

We meet Tuesdays at 7 PM.

They are passionate to see faith growing and love deepened through nurturing growth through time in the word and prayer, seeking their hearts to be satisfied in Jesus.

Emmanuel Abu

Downtown Home Group


Over the years, I have faced many challenges, there were times I became confused and wanted to live my way away from the Lord, but, thank God, he kept me close. I am the recipient of immeasurable grace and blessing from God. He has led me every step of the way in my medical career. I see his leading hand in virtually every area of my life: my going to England, coming to Abu Dhabi and attending Grace Church are all a testimony. The principal thing in my life right now is live for Him and to be part of the body that seeks to do His will and see others come to grace and salvation.

We meet Mondays at 6 PM.

Ene etteh and lorÉ collett 

Al Rayyana Home Group

Hello, my name is Ene, and I arrived in Abu Dhabi from Reading, England, in January 2015. I work as an Aviation Civil Engineer.  Upon experiencing the church community and structure, I felt called to get rooted in Grace Church and to serve and love the church family.  

I came to know Jesus in my second year at university and was blessed with a strong community of believers. At Grace Church, I strive to encourage deeper relationship among the brethren as we support each other in running the race, fighting the good fight and keeping the faith.  Galatians 6:2


Loré loves Jesus, His message of hope and salvation available to all people... and serving her neighbor as God leads her to. She has lived in the region for a number of years, works as a classroom teacher in Abu Dhabi city and is from South Africa.

We meet Tuesdays at 7PM.

Leonard and Christél Murphy

Al Reef Home Group

We have been in the UAE for 11 years and are working in the education field. We’ve been blessed with 3 adult children and a granddaughter of whom we feel very proud. Both of us have grown up in strong Christian homes and by the overwhelming grace of God accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior and King before our teenage years. Ephesians 2:8 and 9 played an integral part of the conversion process for both Christel and I where we are reminded that it is by grace alone that we are saved so that no one may boast.  It is our passion to develop a home group where the fellowship of believers functions as a 24/7 community of encouragement and support.

We meet Mondays at 7pm.
