A Word from our Rector

Welcome to Grace Church! That’s what we’ll say to you when you visit us on a Sunday morning at our beautiful and historic church building in downtown Providence. For right now – welcome to Grace Church’s website! We hope you find on these pages words and images that will inspire you to visit us in person for worship. Grace Church is a diverse community of Christians who come together from towns and cities for miles around to pray, serve, learn, sing, and worship in the Anglican tradition. While our building and much of our worship are traditional and remind us that the Church exists through the centuries, our message and preaching strive to bring the timeless teachings of Jesus Christ into this century and speak to people’s lives today.
As rector, I hope to have the chance to welcome you personally to Grace Church some Sunday soon. While we have families who’ve been in our parish for generations, we are a church that is always growing and changing, reflecting the vitality of our city, and indeed the greater Providence area. Some of our parishioners travel an hour each Sunday to worship with us! So whether you’re new to the area or have been a Rhode Islander your whole life, whether you live twenty minutes away or two blocks away…we hope you’ll visit us soon and be moved to make this amazing parish your church home.

– The Rev. Canon Jonathan Huyck, Rector
