Welcome to Grace Church!

Grace Church, is an active, big-hearted, (air-conditioned) Episcopal parish in lower Georgetown.

This is a particularly busy time of year for Grace and our neighbors, and we hope you can join us!

Music on the Lawn begins 6 pm, Thursday, Sept 3, featuring the upbeat, New Orleans infused sounds of Yamomanem. This annual event, which runs every Thursday evening in September, is a joyous celebration of family, friends and community. See the full details.

The Georgetown Candlelight Church Tour is Saturday, September 12. It’s a wonderful way to tour the neighborhood at your own pace, visit the open Churches, hear beautiful music, and say a prayer for Unity and Peace at each stop.

Don’t miss Grace Church’s fall festival—The Taste of Georgetown! This year’s event kicks off October 3 at 11 am on K Street NW, between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson St. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Georgetown Ministry Center for the homeless.

Georgetown Ministry Center’s Second Annual 5 K Race Against Homelessness is Saturday, October 17, 9:30 a.m. on the Georgetown University Campus. Visit Georgetown 5K for more information, and to register.

Grace is pleased to welcome a visit during services from Bishop Mariann on Sunday, October 18.

Keep an eye on this page, and on News & Events, for information about other upcoming programs and ministries.

Sunday morning services at Grace combine simplicity, informality and reverence, continuing the tradition that drew the working people of a rough-and-tumble neighborhood to Grace at its founding nearly 150 years ago.

Volunteers and staff work together to provide high-quality Christian education for our youngest parishioners. The Georgetown Montessori School meets here on weekdays. Adult education programs invite animated discussion of Christian faith and its connection with the pressing issues of modern living, both personal and public.

From the time its Pastor was known as the principal source of financial assistance for struggling dockworkers, canal diggers and their families, Grace has devoted itself to the service of those in need. Through a partnership with the Georgetown Ministry Center and our own Saturday community lunch and conversation, we make the homeless and marginally housed people of Georgetown a special focus of concern.

The Georgetown Ministry Center is currently in need of personal care items: travel sized toothpaste and deodorant, socks, and toothbrushes. These and other items can be donated through GMC’s Amazon Wish List.

Please click around our website, read our blog, and learn more about us through Twitter and Facebook. We welcome you, in this season of new life and always, to Grace Church.
