Welcome to our Parish

St. Peter’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church is a faith community that seeks to equip and nurture persons to live out the love of God and to share the message of Jesus Christ through servant ministry to the greater community.

We respect the dignity of all persons regardless of national origin, race, gender, age or sexual orientation, and welcome and encourage them to participate fully in all areas of our parish life.

Our worship and all of our common life together centers on the Holy Eucharist, which we share together each Sunday. Jesus shared bread and wine with his first followers and we believe that his risen presence can be found in this Sacrament.

Come discover and enjoy a people with open hearts, open minds, and open arms. Whatever situations you may face, there is a place for you in the caring, supportive environment of St. Peter’s by-the-Sea.

Our worship is open, thoughtful,
reverent and inspiring.

Rooted in Tradition

In 1902, St. Peter’s was recognized by the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi as an organized mission. On  January 21, 1921, St. Peter’s became a parish. Throughout its life, St. Peter’s by-the-Sea has been involved in the community: from opening its parish hall to Gulfport Little Theater productions in the 1930’s, to feeding the hungry during the Depression and becoming a headquarters for the distribution of information and relief after Hurricane Camille in 1969. After recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Camille, St. Peter’s continued to grow and prosper throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s. On June 26, 2000, St. Peter’s by-the-Sea consecrated the Gothic style building at our present address on Beach Drive. On August 29, 2005, ...

Community

We gather as a family. Young or old, there is a place for all at our table. We believe that the community is the missing link in our lives today. People are scattered and worn thin while seeking a niche or place to belong. Ours is a place where all children can be known by name; where the stranger is greeted warmly; diversity is embraced; and the suffering may find a place of solace and hope. From parish suppers and book discussions to annual festivals and special celebrations, we gather in Jesus Christ to strengthen  one another for service in our community ...
