Welcome to St. Peter’s Church

We are glad you’re here. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church has been praising God since 1761—and we are still at it! A progressive, Christian church, St. Peter’s is a safe place to explore or deepen your faith, a joyful place to worship, and a lively place to connect with others.

Together, we raise our voice for justice, diversity, and love for all of God’s children and our planet. We invite you to learn more about St. Peter’s and join us for a service on Sunday. There is a place for you here. Learn More »

Meet Our Rector: The Rev. Claire Nevin-Field

I have had a lifelong fascination with Jesus, and find him to be: joyful, puzzling, funny, frustrating, humbling, deeply engaging, and life giving. Anne Lamott was right when she called laughter “carbonated holiness.” I find much humor and joy in life—and in church.

I was born in the northeast of England, and I’m delighted that my path has led me to Philadelphia and to St. Peter’s Church. In addition to being rector here, I am also a former nurse midwife and a mother of two daughters. My husband and I (and our three cats) live near the church in Queen Village.

I extend a warm invitation to you and your family to visit St. Peter’s for a Sunday service and let us walk with you on your journey of faith.
