GRAY — There is a new church in town, but it is a new church with deep roots and global Evangelical connections.

Reformation Anglican Church is 20 minutes from either Portland or Lewiston and can be reached from the Windham lakes region or Freeport area within 30 minutes.

The church is born of the protestant reformation in England in the 16th Century and is known for hymns such as “Amazing Grace,” “Rock of Ages” and “O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing;” through evangelists like George Whitefield and John Stott; through Bible teachers like J.C. Ryle and J.I. Packer; as well as the abolitionists John Newton and William Wilberforce and many other leaders, writers and thinkers such as George Washington, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and C.S. Lewis.

Today there are tens of millions of Anglicans with churches in 164 countries throughout the world.

As Anglicans, they value their place in this global communion of churches, in their rich history of faith and practice, and a deep commitment to the authority of Scripture and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“We are a community of broken, imperfect people who have found forgiveness, healing and redemption in the person of Jesus Christ,” according to a statement from the church.

“Our goal as believers is to connect people to Jesus so that they might grow to maturity as his disciples. As we do that, we will come to know genuine life and peace in Him as we journey through the wilderness of this life.

As we near Easter they invites others to join on this journey of faith.

The church meets for worship and a meal at 10 a.m. every Sunday in the red brick One Gray Center building at 6 Main St. in Gray. Feel free to contact the pastor at (207) 894-0177 or visit the church at
