In our short life as a church, we’ve learned so much along the way from those who have gone before us. We believe that God’s love form the central core of our lives which reflects tangibly on every special occasions such as Christmas, New year, Easter and so on. The church uses such occasions as an opportunity to welcome missionary speakers from various cultures, members of other local tamil churches across the South of England and students from local universities. At GGIC, our mission is to bring people together and make life changing relationships accessible to you.
