OPEN HEARTS.
OPEN MINDS.

Join us for worship at 11 AM every Sunday.

Welcome to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. A theologically 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. We believe that God created all there is and declared it to be good. We believe that all people are beloved by God and are of equal worth and dignity.

Together, we raise our voices for justice, serve our neighbors and our city, and care for our planet and all of God’s creation. We invite you to participate in our life of prayer, learning, and service.

Journey through Lent

We invite everyone to journey with us through the season of Lent. Walk our outdoor Stations in the Street; attend our Lenten Sunday morning series or Tuesday Discipleship Group; or join us at Sunday worship. Learn more about Lent at St. Peter’s.

Worship With Us

We gather together every Sunday at 11 AM for a worship service with choir and organ at our historic church at Third & Pine Streets. We also offer a 9 AM Sunday service for families, a Noon weekday Eucharist service, and other weekday prayer.  Learn more about regular worship services and how you can join us.

For Families

Although St. Peter’s welcomes children at all times, a special service for young children and their families takes place at 9 a.m. every Sunday during the school year. We also provide Sunday School for children ages 6-10 during the regular 11 a.m. worship service. Learn more about how we welcome children!

All are Welcome

Not only does St. Peter’s Church accept and welcome a wide range of theological ideas and perspectives, we also accept and welcome all people. We believe that all people—of all races, nationalities, and gender identities—are beloved by God and are of equal worth and dignity. Learn more about what we believe.

Food Cupboard

St. Peter’s operates a Food Cupboard to distribute groceries every Saturday from 8-10 a.m. at the Parish House. The Food Cupboard is managed by volunteers from the church, neighborhood, and community. Click here to learn more or volunteer.

Sing in the Choir
