Our History

Originally established in 1844 and renamed in 2013, Graceworks has always been a church on the move. From meetings in an old Police court on King William Street, a school house, Park Street and then in 1879 moving to James Street, Graceworks is an established church community. We desire to serve God by loving and serving the people who live in this great city.

We are now looking for a new physical home, and we invite you to come and not only join us, but change us. Be involved in creating a new KIND of church from the ground up, focused on worship and developing community. If you have a passion for loving God,  serving those in need or if you are simply investigating a spiritual curiosity, please consider us.

Over 170 Years of God's Faithfulness!

Designed by the architect of nearby St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, the James Street Baptist Church building was constructed largely from the same plans.
