About Grace

Grace Episcopal Church

Nestled in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, Grace Episcopal Church retains much of the charm of the farm community from which it sprang. As the oldest Episcopal Church in the Brandywine Hundred, the congregation was first housed in an early stone school-house purchased and refitted for church services in December, 1835. 

Our current home dates back to 1872, when 10 acres were purchased to build a church and cemetary. The original stone chapel was completed and the first worship service and dedication took place on July 4, 1875. 

That legacy of tradition offers both opportunities and challenges as we embrace the increasing pace of life in the twenty-first century. Like our earliest forebearers, we don't all agree how best to meet these challenges, but we agree that through nurturing faith, and church family, and instilling a deep knowledge of our Lord, Jesus Christ, we can journey forward as the Lord calls us.
