About St. Peter's
St. Peter's is a welcoming and active Christian community of disciples in the Episcopal tradition. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we follow Christ in prayer and praise, study and service. Our engaged laity are led by our priest, with support from our deacon and staff.
Each of our three weekend worship services has its own character, and all include Holy Communion, which all baptized Christians are invited to receive, including young children. We also have a healing service on Wednesday mornings, a prayer vine, and healing prayers for any who come forward at the beginning of our worship services. We offer Sunday School from preschool through high school confirmation. For adults, we offer Bible Study and other opportunities for spiritual learning, formation and growth.
Since 2015, we are honored to be a Jubilee Ministry Center, based on our ministry of joint discipleship in Christ with poor and oppressed people to meet basic human needs and to build a just society. We have regular food drives, volunteer at a Camden breakfast program, help support a school in Haiti, and offer our space to a Boy Scout troop, several AA meetings, and other community groups. We enjoy fellowship through doing ministry together and other special fellowship events just for fun.
We invite you to watch our video and to check out our playlist of "What St. Peter's Means To Me" videos on our YouTube channel. View a video tour or a service, too.
We invite you to join us at any time. Guests are expected!
