This lovely church, surrounded by historic buildings and spacious grounds has attracted many members of the congregation.

The Gloria Dei congregation finds great joy in coming together for worship and various other events and gatherings. Our church community views themselves as friendly, open, accepting, relaxed and welcoming. These attributes are what most new members cite as their reason to join Gloria Dei. We enthusiastically look to attract new members while maintaining the warm nature of the existing community.
