Grace at the Circle is a space created for Progressives who would like to explore issues of social justice and faith.
Grace at the Circle is primarily a monthly gathering with a potluck dinner; there are also monthly and annual events allowing members to engage in interfaith dialogue, participate in one-time service projects or attend art events together in and around the city of Buffalo.

Grace at the Circle meets on the last Monday of each month from 7pm - 8:30pm, at St. John’s-Grace Episcopal Church, 51 Colonial Circle, Buffalo, NY 14222. The goal is to spend one year – a cycle – focusing on strengthening our faith, building a community and inspiring each other. Cycle One started on August 28th, 2017 and will end on July 30th, 2018.
What to expect ... The monthly gatherings are informal, informative and always exciting! We start with centering and an introduction of the guest speaker and topic. Then we break to fix plates of food from the potluck (some people bring their own plates, cups and silverware to cut down on paper and plastic waste - however this is not a requirement). We sit around a big table, while a guest provides a short presentation of his or her own passion. Then we have a large group discussion until we run out of time.
Grace at the Circle is …
· An adventure a small group can take together over the course of a year.
· An enhanced Bible study with a service component.
· An excuse to get together to eat.
