The office has my email address, so why am I not receiving the newsletter by email?
The email list is self-subscribe and completely separate from our regular parish database. The parish office will not add addresses to the email list. This ensures that we only send mass emails to people who wish to receive them. If you have never received an email from Grace Church, you may not be on our list. Click here to join

How do I get a copy of the birthday/ anniversary list?
A link to the birthday/anniversary list is emailed with the first newsletter every month.

How do I change my email address?
Open any Grace Church email and click the link that says "Update Profile/Email Address" at the bottom. You should then receive an email with a link to your registration page, where you will be able to edit your email address and areas of interest. If you no longer have access to your old emails, use the link on our website to sign up again with your new email address.

How do I take my name off the email list?
Click the button that says "SafeUnsubscribe" at the bottom of any email you have received from Grace Church. This will open a page where you can remove your email address from specific interest lists (i.e. no longer wish to receive the newsletter by email but want to stay on the Parish Wide email list) or opt-out of receiving all future communications. Once your opt-out choices have been made, you are automatically removed from the chosen lists.

If you unsubscribe to all of the mailing lists, you will be added to the 'Do Not Mail' list and Grace Church will no longer be able to send you emails through the list. Please note however, that unsubscribing from the email list will not prevent the parish office from being able to email you individually should the need arise, provided we also have your email address in our regular parish database. The information we have on file in the parish database (maintained by the parish secretary) is completely separate from the email list.
