Street parking abounds around the church. On Sundays, there is no fee for metered spaces. Handicap parking spots are located near the corner of N. Tejon St. and Monument St., with wheelchair access located at the northeast corner of the church building.


On Sundays centuries-old rituals and God’s message of hope and love combine to inspire and challenge us to face a noisy, complicated world with grace and love.

We welcome you to participate in and experience a transformative order of worship, beautiful choral music, vibrant congregational singing, and inspiring sounds from the organ. The order for the service--prayers, hymns and lessons—are provided in a bulletin so that all may participate as they wish.

At the 10:30 am service, children join the a member of the clergy for the children’s sermon after Sunday School, and then join their families for the remainder of the service.

Following either service, hospitality hour in the parish hall gives everyone a chance to connect with old friends, make new ones and weave more threads into the fabric of our parish life.

Ushers at the back of the church are available at anytime to answer any questions. We hope you will help us welcome you personally by completing the Contact Us form.

I go to church for spiritual healing, and for the sense of peace I get while there.  I love the tranquility and family feeling of the congregation.   More...

My hours at Grace are the highlight of my weeks. I love coming to help the gardeners on Saturday morning. And on third Saturdays I help Anna, Spot and Jill on Altar Guild before heading out to get dirty. On a deeper level, I’ve really benefited from helping facilitate a small sharing group in the Faith Seeking Journey last year, and I look forward to another amazing year in that wonderful program.

I attend church because growing up with my grandparents; especially my grandmother, she believed it was important for the family to worship.  I really did not have a choice…even when she was not going (…was not well, etc), my cousin, brother and I had to go.  As I got older, church became a major part of my life…it was and is a place to grow with others who are on a spiritual journey such as I.  More...

I was raised in a Pentecostal Church, and when I came here, it was so very different. In no time, though, it felt like home—as so many people welcomed me, and helped me on my path to becoming an Episcopalian. More...

I love that it is a downtown Church that draws a broad spectrum of members from across the Pikes Peak region, including especially from the arts and academic communities. I love that Grace has hosted community events for nearly a century with Taylor concerts—especially Advent Lessons and Carols and Britten’s Noye’s Fludde—and Jazz in the Garden. I love the stone walls, the painted ceilings, the shadows, the smell of beeswax, the organ, and the liturgy—Rite 1 Eucharist, evensong, compline, the Maundy Thursday Watch. I love that our children grew up in Grace, attending an academically rigorous Sunday School, singing in children’s and youth choirs, serving God as acolytes and serving the world with adult & peer outreach projects.  More...
