Who We Are

We are St. Gregory’s, an Episcopal Church located in downtown Boca Raton. Our mission: Transforming hearts and community through Jesus’ love. 

We are diverse in thought, traditional in worship, and dynamic in love—a church of the past, present, and future. We are a beacon of light shining on one of downtown Boca’s busiest corners, signaling that Christ’s message is alive and well in South Florida. We are more than 1,100 members strong and growing.

The vision of St. Gregory’s is a church thriving in God’s love in Jesus Christ and faithfully pursuing this mission by:

• Celebrating God’s love in worship that shapes hearts, challenges minds and renews lives.
• Sharing God’s love by caring for each other and all in need with the relentless compassion of Christ.
• Growing in God’s love through a commitment to Christian formation for all ages.
• Spreading God’s love with an unconditional welcome to all God’s children.

 

With this vision in action, our church is a source of spiritual sustenance for our congregation members and the greater community. We have more than 80 active ministry groups that deepen our fellowship with one another and foster our Christian faith. For us, church life is more than an hour in the pew on Sunday. It’s a lifestyle that revolves around Christ and one another. Learn more about our ministry groups.

St. Gregory’s is dedicated to serving others—as Christians, we believe service transforms us by revealing what Christ-like compassion means. We strive to make Jesus’ love real in the world by ministering to the poor locally and abroad, alleviating the suffering that is all too common in the world. Read about our service work and how you can get involved.

We are especially dedicated to our youth and teens, helping them become disciples of Christ and strong in their faith. Our vibrant Sunday School and Youth Group programs are just two examples of our commitment to the our children—click here to discover more.

Most of all, we are a church that is ready to welcome you. Join us this Sunday for worship and see why St. Gregory’s is diverse, traditional, and dynamic.
