Welcome to our Parish

[smartslider3 slider=2]

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.
