Grace Episcopal Church is a parish in the Diocese of California of The Episcopal Church. The Episcopal Church is a Protestant Christian denomination which is part of the global Anglican Communion. We are a democratic and hierarchical organization and consider clergy and lay people to be equally important to the work of the church, with each group attempting to find and fulfill our specific call to serve from God. Grace Church Martinez began as a “house” church for the sailing community in 1854. Our anchor symbol honors this association. The current property, consecrated in 1955, is the third site of the parish. Our church bell has been calling people to worship at Grace since 1875.
