The Vision of Grace Church is to be a Holy-Spirit-led community of Christ-followers who love God above all else and love others as ourselves.
*The Mission of Grace Church is to call and equip people to become Spirit-filled followers of Jesus Christ, who experience and extend the love of God to the church community, our neighbours, and the world.
Through "Grace Local Ministries" and "Outreach (Grace Community Services)" along with the Christian–faith programs/courses and various fellowship activities/events, we encourage you to put into practice the *Mission Statement listed above in order to accomplish our church's vision.

He has also served in CRC ministries and congregations in Montreal, Quebec, Waterloo, Ontario, and Vermillion, South Dakota.
Since serving as the music director at this church in February 2007, Carol’s passion has always been involving everyone in the congregation to take part in the music ministry. Whether young or old, with or without music training, any ethnic background, everyone is invited to take part during the Sunday worship service and other events through singing, dancing, playing an instrument, reading, etc. As Carol says, "everyone is blessed with some form of God’s given talent, use it to praise the Lord and share it with His family." Carol is the music director at Grace Church. She began her training at the piano at age 4. She graduated with a piano performance degree from the University of Toronto.
What a great privilege I have as God Almighty has enabled me to respond to His call by working in three churches starting in 2006 as the church’s full-time office staff.
With His Word given in mind and heart, Micah 6:8, “…To act justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God" has guided me in my service and life. Additionally, as a passionate sister in Christ, I highly value and care for all people and also seek to achieve and maintain positive relationships with Christ-followers for God's great mission.
Sarath and Kamini Peiris have faithfully served as custodians of Grace Church since February 1996.
