Welcome to Grace Anglican Church!

Whether you are unsure what a Christian faith is, new in your faith, a lifelong believer, or simply want to know more, we want you to feel right at home visiting with us. Our Sunday gatherings offer a unique style of worship that blends tmusic, prayer, and biblical teaching in the framework of our rich Anglican liturgy and history.  We invite you to visit all our services to determine which one is the best fit for you.

What to expect

The best way to understand the warmth and hospitality of Grace Anglican Church is to come and experience Grace Anglican Church. Come worship with us! Below you will find answers to common questions about what to expect.

What should I wear?

We strive to provide a warm, family-friendly atmosphere that is both authentic and welcoming. The attire of our congregation varies from casual to more formal, based on the preferences of individuals. Whether you are most comfortable in your "Sunday best" or in a pair of jeans, you'll fit right in. Our primary hope is that you will be comfortable worshiping with us and experience the love of Christ and a sense of community.

Where should I park?

Follow the signs as you enter the property and you will find the parking lot on the left. 

Where is the Welcome Tent and the Sanctuary?

Follow the signs from the parking lot that direct you to the sanctuary. As you approach the sanctuary, members of our welcome team will greet you at the "Welcome Tent" and will have information regarding the worship services, show you where to check-in your children for their age appropriate programs, and answer any other questions you may have. 

What are the worship services like?

All of our services offer the four basic movements of the worship liturgy (gathering, word, table, and sending), but present them in differing ways. At their most basic level, you can expect each service to have praise music, a sermon or homily, and holy communion.  

The 7:45 AM Contemplative Service is a little more scaled back with moments of quiet, less music and a shorter sermon. The service lasts about 45 minutes, includes communion, and appeals to early risers and those who prefer a more intimate and reflective time of worship. Despite the shorter duration, it feels more spacious with only a few dozen regulars in the large sanctuary. There is no childcare for this service. 

The 9:00 AM Traditional Service includes the most traditional liturgical elements including vestments, processional hymns on the organ and other choir arrangements. There is typically a choral offertory anthem followed by praise choruses during communion. This service appeals to many families who enjoy a vibrant expression of liturgical worship.

The 11:00 AM Contemporary Service takes the four basic movements of the worship liturgy (Gathering, Word, Table and Sending) and presents them in a contemporary style. Music in this service is led by a band and many parts of the service are done in varying and creative ways.
