let's get started

where there's love, music, kindness and community, there is Grace

Grace Church on-the-Hill strives to be a place of grace, and a welcoming community of faith growing closer to God through the countless and unique talents of its members in worship and in service.

Coronavirus Prayer

Listen to this beautiful prayer for our shared days of uncertainty. View the text here.

"When Churches Are Closed"

 

If Christian folk must always pray

     Within four walls of brick,

How sad 'twould be to close the church

     When half the town is sick!

 

But Christian folk may also pray

     Beneath October skies,

Whose veil of blue can scarce conceal

     The hills of paradise!

 

And in the quiet spots of home,

     With those we dearly love,

With chastened spirits may we seek

     The grace of God above.

And most of all within the heart,

     Far hid from sound or sight,

The human temple's inner shrine,

     Where glows the inner light,

 

Undimmed "when all the hosts

     Of ill are most abroad,"

There, with no intervening priest,

     We all may speak with God.

 

So let us keep our gladsome trust

     This churchless day of prayer,

And prove again the ancient truth

     That God is everywhere.

          — Raymond H. Huse, published in the October 1918 edition of the New York Christian Advocate, a publication of the Methodist Episcopal Church

What is, and what is not happening at Grace over the next few days?

While we will not be holding our usual public worship service this Sunday, there are many ways the Grace Community can continue to share the beauty of our church. We are now live streaming our service through YouTube and on this site. 

Pastoral care will continue unabated within the Ministry of Health guidelines for responsible interactions.

 

If you know someone who isn't online, but may wish to know more about what's happening at Grace, please give them a phone call to make sure they know that there will not be services this week. It's a great way to help us inform everyone, and to catch up with friends. 

You may wish to add to the prayer list. Please email Chris at cleonard@gracechurchonthehill.ca.

 

Our Child Care centre will be closed until at least April 15th.

 

The church office will function through remote access.

 

We wish you all health through the Lenten journey.

Welcome
