Greetings, and thank you for taking time to find out about Sudanese Grace Episcopal Church.

We are a parish congregation in the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan.  We pray, celebrate, and share our challenges in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are a community of faith, living in hope, and serving with love.  Our church is in the Anglican tradition; grounded in scriptures.  If you are interested in the Christian faith, we invite you to come and join us in this journey of faith.  All are welcome to worship with us on Sunday at 11:30 am, followed by coffee hour.

About Sudanese Grace

Sudanese Grace Episcopal Church is a community founded by “lost boys” — refugees from war-torn Sudan.  Our journey from the South Sudan included stops in refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya before making Grand Rapids our home and holding our first worship service in 2003. 

Over the past 17 years, our faithful congregation has worshiped in several locations across our city.  Due to the generosity of the former Wallin Congregational Church, we now claim a permanent home on Oswego Street. 

Sudanese Grace Church is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, The Episcopal Church, and the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan.


All are welcome to join us on Sunday at 11:30 am to worship in our native language, Dinka.  On the first Sunday of every month, we worship together in English.
