Grace Church is 

Working for Social Justice 

Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression.

Isaiah 1:17

Grace Church Brooklyn Heights is committed to our core value of working for social justice. We are a neighborhood church. We are also a community of faith in the City of New York. New York City is a global city— home to over 8 million people. It is a city of diverse languages and cultures. It is a city of promise and possibility. Unfortunately, many New Yorkers are struggling to access the promise and possibility of our city. According to the Center for New York City Affairs, approximately one in five New Yorkers lives in poverty and nearly half the city’s households are considered near poor. Some of our city’s more pressing concerns include:

  • The need for more affordable Housing
  • Health Care Accessibility
  • Combatting Gun Violence
  • Criminal Justice Reform

Here at Grace Church, we live out our commitment to the ministry of social justice by education (in discussion groups and inviting featured speakers) and advocacy, partnering with institutions and other faith leaders to improve the quality of life for all New Yorkers.

For more information about our social justice and reconciliation ministry, please contact Rev. Leandra Lisa Lambert at llambert@gracebrooklyn.org.
