SHARING GOD’S LOVE

Our congregation is lively and diverse.  We come together in worship, service and fellowship: to share our lives, to support each other, to learn from each other, and to have fun together!

THE REVEREND
ROBERT BERGNER,
PRIEST-IN-CHARGE

We are called to love and support each other, to share each other’s joys and sorrows, to pray for one another, to encourage one another and to comfort one another.

We are called to gather together in worship, to sing, to pray, and to hear and reflect on scripture, to break bread
and share the Body of Christ.

We are called to go out into the world,
to serve our neighbors and to share
the good news of God’s love and Christ’s victory over sin and death.

HISTORY

Grace and St. Peter’s is the product of the merger of two parishes in 1990. St. Peter’s did not exist until 1958, but the history of Grace Church stretches back 200 years before the merger, when our nation was newly independent, the Episcopal Church USA had only recently established its own constitution and structure apart from the Church of England, and the town of Hamden was little more than a dusty crisscrossing of paths in the countryside.

There is a small parking lot behind the church, and parking is also available on Sundays in the lot behind the DeMatteo building, next door to the church grounds. 
Enter the DeMatteo lot by the driveway right next to the church’s EXIT driveway.
