Grace Episcopal Church

Bremo Bluff, Virginia

Welcome to Grace Church, located in Bremo Bluff, a historic river village on the James River in Fluvanna County, Virginia.

We are an Episcopal congregation, but our membership is made up of a broad diversity of previous religious affiliations. Our common interest is in the fellowship and worship of God, and all who wish to participate in the service and activities of this church are invited to join us, whether or not you have had any association with a church in the past. The Episcopal liturgy of today is clear and direct, and readily accessible to anyone who has an interest in making religion a part of their lives.

Grow In Grace

Three buildings house our church and activities. The central building, currently our Parish house, is the most historically interesting. Originally built in 1835 by General John Hartwell Cocke as a chapel for the enslaved persons on his Bremo plantation. It served that purpose until after the Civil War when the Cocke family donated it to the Bremo Bluff community for its church – and was moved 5 miles for that purpose.

A small building, it was outgrown and retired as a church in 1924. A new, larger brick church was erected (the current Grace Episcopal Church,) and the now Parish House was moved yet again behind the new church. It is listed in both the National and Virginia Registers of Historic buildings.

The Ranson House, which is the small white house on the north side of the Parish House, briefly served the community children as a schoolhouse and currently houses our church office.
