Brandywine Collaborative Ministries (BCM) is a partnership of three congregations: Grace Episcopal Church, Episcopal Church of the Ascension, and Calvary-Hillcrest Episcopal Church. As partners with God and each other in mission to God’s world, we faithfully strive to:
We are a tree of life rooted in God's love branching out to embrace all.
Our mission is to be a wellspring of spiritual sustenance, providing support for faith, friendship, and service within the Brandywine Hundred Community.
Whatever your background, you have a place with us. We are a congregation drawn from many ethnic, theological, economic, and political backgrounds. Our congregation welcomes diversity within our midst, just as our Creator has celebrated diversity. We truly are a house of prayer for all people!
Calvary Episcopal Church is located just north of Wilmington, Delaware and just south of Bellefonte. We are a Christian community in the American Episcopal tradition. We welcome all people and seek to live as faithful witnesses to the message of Christ through worship and through service to others, reflecting the manifest glory of God.
Please look around our website and feel at home. We have been a vibrant part of the community in North Wilmington, Delaware, near Bellefonte, for over 150 years.
Thank you for visiting the Brandywine Collaborative Ministries Website. We hope that you will gain a sense of the scope of the ministries of the three Episcopal Churches who function as equal partners in this new and innovative approach to ministry in the Diocese of Delaware.
The prayer of our congregations at Church of the Ascension, Calvary, and Grace is for God to guide us so that we may grow stronger in service to our community and share the love of Jesus Christ, our redeemer, steadfast companion, and chief partner in ministry.
We hope that you will consider coming in person for a visit at any one of our three churches to worship with us on a Sunday morning. You can find out more information about each church through the links provided at this site. It would be our privilege to welcome you.
