We are a diverse and welcoming community of people who support each other in our spiritual lives. Whoever you are, you are welcome here. This is a church for people who ask questions, make mistakes, and enjoy being human in the light of God’s love.
The building where we worship was consecrated in 1842. Its history and simple beauty matter to us, but what matters more are the 174 years of prayers that have been prayed here. Come. Our church building is always open, and is used by many people in the community as a place for quiet prayer.
We believe the Episcopal Church offers a unique way of experiencing God and living into a faith community. We want to share that. At the same time, we do not wish to overwhelm a visitor. Click here for more information about a visit to Grace-Calvary.
And because we have three services, we don’t always recognize who’s a visitor and who’s a member who usually worships at a different service! So when you visit, please let others know you’re visiting! You’re also invited to fill out a card in the pew to help us get to know you.
We recognize our style of worship is not for everyone, but if you want to be here…we want you to be here! We would love to offer you a place at His table.
We are a congregation of 300 members who share ministry with close to 100 congregations across middle and north Georgia and make up the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. We have through the years developed our own particular expression as a fellowship of Christians who celebrate and share the good news of God’s love as we have come to know it in Jesus Christ.
The people of Grace-Calvary Episcopal Church worship in the oldest unaltered church building in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. Built by Jarvis Van Buren, a relative of U.S. President Van Buren and consecrated on Oct. 10, 1842, the church is a beautiful example of Greek Revival architecture. The building’s historic features include over 42 multipaned windows that still retain most of the original hand blown glass, straight-backed box pews and a “double-decked” pulpit. Our pipe organ is the oldest working church instrument in Georgia.
