What To Expect as a Visitor

Welcome to Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church - Gloucester!  You are not a stranger, only a friend we have not yet met! 


You can arrive at GCPC either from Main Street or South Street in Gloucester Court House. You can let your passengers out either at the Main Street entrance door, or if it’s inclement weather, under the covered portico on the South Street side of the church.


There is plenty of paved parking and a grassy supplemental lot. If you enter from the portico entrance take the first right and keep going, past child care, through the fellowship hall, until you get to the steps leading to the main worship center.  If you enter from the Main Street entrance, just go up the the steps to the main worship center. 


If you have children you wish to place in child care, go left from the main entrance and through the fellowship hall.  The nurseries will be on your right. Our child care givers will treat your children with love and respect and will follow GCPC’s childcare safety policy.  A greeter or usher will help direct you. 


At the top of the steps to the main worship center, you will be greeted by an usher and given a worship program.  An elevator is in the foyer if you don’t like steps.  Once you enter the worship center, take a seat wherever you like. Restrooms are outside the entrance to the main worship center and in other areas of the church.


Our Services and Sunday School

We have a coffee bar beginning at 9 AM, this is followed by Sunday School for all ages beginning at 9:15 AM.

This year we are teaching birth through high schoolers the same lesson, just taught to their level.This way your older children and younger ones can talk about what they are learning in Sunday School!


The 10:30 AM service is structured with thoughtful liturgies and responsive readings as well as traditional & Contemporary hymns. We have special music almost each week by one of our many Choirs.


All services consist of music, reading of the Bible, prayers, a time for greeting each other, and a message by the pastor.  The services are almost always 1 hour or less in duration. 


Each new visitor is invited to give us information about themselves so we can get in touch and meet their family.  Join us in supporting each other in God’s love and worshipping Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth!
