Greetings to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord, Jesus Christ!
I am the Rev. David Hyatt, but most folks just call me Father Dave. I am the honourary assistant curate here at Grace Anglican, the Mother Church of Brantford, and I am delighted to extend my warmest welcome to you.
I am thrilled to be a priest here at Grace. My mom and dad joined Grace in 1957, so I was born here, raised here and, aside from a few brief years that I spent St, Luke’s Anglican, I have spent all of my life here as part of this parish family: the nursery, the Sunday School, Junior Choir, Youth Group, Senior Choir, member of Parish Council, Warden, Lay Reader and now – I still find it hard to believe! – “priested” here in June 2019. My life and that of my family is tied to this beautiful place and especially to the wonderful people here because for all the great things Grace Church has meant to me over the years, it’s the relationships that mean the most! This is truly my church family, my brothers and sisters in Christ! What a terrific company of sinners where we care for one another and our community in loving service as we seek to learn about and to know Christ in Word and Sacrament, through the power of the Holy Spirit, and to serve Him in those around us.
Am I enthusiastic for this place? Heck ya, you bet! I hope you will be, too! Enjoy your visit to our website, and I hope you will get the chance to drop by in person sometime; Please take this as your personal invitation to join our worship in the best of the Anglican tradition, and if you do, please be sure to say “hi,” I’d love to show you around this incredibly special place.
May God richly bless you always, in all ways.
