We are glad that you have found our website. Christ and Grace Episcopal Church in Petersburg, Virginia, is an increasingly vibrant parish who seeks and welcomes new families and individuals who seek God's love. We are well established but strive to act like a church that is newly formed as our members bring new ideas for ministry within and beyond the walls of the church. The Outreach Garden is a good example of our continual efforts to explore new avenues to reach out to our local and extended communities who face many challenges.
We are diverse in our theological and social positions but find that being together in worship, fellowship and service is more important than strict uniformity in the belief and practice of our faith. We pray and strive to let Jesus be our guide as we seek to love God and our neighbors as ourselves.
Our Mission is simply stated: We offer hope, healing, and hospitality to everyone we encounter. It is our desire that you engage in and experience these aspirations as well. We hope you will join us at Christ and Grace. When you do, you will find, as we do, that the presence of the Lord is in this place.
Our doors and hearts will be open to all. We will provide a variety of worship and study opportunities for people of all ages to encounter the living God. We will be agents of positive change throughout the larger community.
