Worship at Grace-St. Luke’s

Worship provides intentional opportunities for people to thank God for blessings known and unknown, connect with one another, be fed by Word and Sacrament, and be restored to face whatever lies ahead. Our various services offer readings from and meditations on the holy scriptures, music, silence; most services include sharing in the holy meal (Holy Communion) from God’s Table as food for the journey. All are welcome to any and all that we offer at GSL.

During the season of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to doing our part of joining in the practices and precautions that might slow the spread of the coronavirus. Effective March 22, in-person worship offerings are suspended from our space at the corner of Peabody and Belvedere to online offerings. We hope you will join us according to this schedule of Weekly Virtual Offerings for worship and more.

A Closer Look

Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church is a welcoming community of faith in the heart of Midtown Memphis. We are a vibrant church with members of many religious backgrounds and ages from across the city. Ask around, and you'll find that we've made Grace-St. Luke's our church home for a variety of different reasons. But some that will keep coming up are the glorious Episcopal worship service, the warmth of the community, the inspiring music, the passionate spirit of inclusion, and the open-mindedness that welcomes questions, debate, and discovery.

We welcome all who seek to love God and participate in an open and supportive community based on the example and teachings of Jesus Christ. That means we respect the dignity of every human person by welcoming and affirming all. We hope you'll visit us on a Sunday or another day for any or all offerings available. We look forward to meeting you.

The Mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. Grace-St. Luke's Vision is to be a thriving community of hope, belonging, and healing through worship, parish life, and service, and who rejoices in the love of Jesus to transform the world.
