Welcome to Grace
On behalf of the Grace Episcopal Church community I want to welcome you to our website. We are a vibrant community that seeks to serve Christ in all people. Our motto is “Whoever you are, wherever you are, come to the holy table and receive the supper of the Lamb.” This is our ministry – and our weekly invitation to communion – and we mean it.
So if you are looking for a new church community or coming to visit us for the first time know that you are welcome here at Grace!!
Our main service on Sunday is at 10:00am. We offer quieter services at 8:00am Sundays and on Saturdays at 5:00pm in All Saints’ Chapel. During the week we worship on Wednesdays at 7:00am and 10:00am.
Grace Church is handicap accessible and conveniently located at the corner of County and School Streets, on the edge of historic downtown New Bedford, just minutes from Dartmouth, Fairhaven, and surrounding areas.
If you would like to know more or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
May Christ’s Peace be with you,
