“To glorify God by proclaiming our savior the Lord Jesus Christ in prayerful dependence on the Holy Spirit, so that everyone will hear his call to repent, trust and serve Christ in love, and be established in the fellowship of his disciples while they await his return.”
Grace Church of Greenwich met for the first time in 1994 in Greenwich’s Hyatt Regency. Since then it has grown under the leadership of the Reverend Tom Oates, moving location in 1996 to the Woman's Club of Greenwich. Although it is based in Greenwich, people come from many other surrounding towns to be a part of the church family. Grace Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America. Since January 2006, we have run two services each Sunday in order to accommodate the growing number of people who are joining our church
