Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here

Grace Church, Newton MA is a faith community in the Episcopal (Anglican) tradition. Every Sunday at communion our priest says, “Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.” And we mean it! Exclusion is not our style. Hospitality is. We are straight and gay, from many different racial and ethnic backgrounds, seekers and doubters, newbies and lifelong church-goers. We are known for our commitment to social justice, our support of women in ministry (ordained and lay), and our love of learning and discussion. We’ve been in Newton Corner for a while (since 1855). We grow in faith together, and extend Christ’s welcome out into the world.

For Family and Friends Attending the Funerals at Grace Church

The community of Grace Church extends our sincere condolences.

Here are a few notes to orient you to our parish.

Map and directions are here 

Parking: Grace Church has a very small shared lot with two handicapped spaces. Street parking will be available on one side of the street on Wednesday and on both sides of Eldredge St. on Saturday. Please plan on arriving early so that you will have adequate time to find street parking. Carpooling is recommended.

Accessibility: Grace Church is handicapped accessible. There are two handicapped parking spaces in our small parking lot. There is an accessible restroom, and the sanctuary is accessible with special wheelchair seating towards the center of the pews.

Communion: At Grace Church, all who seek God are welcome to receive Communion, or to come forward to receive a blessing instead of the bread and wine. It is also fine to remain seated during Communion if it is not your tradition or wish to receive. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we welcome you, and wish you solace and strength in your time of grief.
