Welcome to Saint Peter’s!
Saint Peter’s has been a place of ministry and mercy in the heart of Central Square for 175 years, and God willing, we have only just begun! We are committed to following the way of Jesus, a journey that sustains us amid the changes and chances of life.
We invite you to join us on a Sunday morning for lively worship with sermon and music, on a Wednesday evening for a contemplative service and our Adult Forum, on a Saturday afternoon as we feed our hungry neighbors, or perhaps at a concert or other event in our sanctuary. If what you read here speaks to you, then come and see!
Scenes from Our Church Life
The Reclaiming Jesus Statement
Saint Peter's endorses "Reclaiming Jesus, A Confession of Faith in a Time of Crisis," a statement endorsed by Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop and leader of the Episcopal Church USA, and other prominent religious leaders on Ash Wednesday, 2018.
Prayer of the Week
Set us free, O God, from the bondage of our sins, and give us the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to us in your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Wednesday, February 13, 7:15-8:15 pm: Meet Saint Peter’s organ! Jonathan Ambrosino, an organ restoration specialist, will explain the workings of our historic organ. We’ll explore the keyboard and peek into the mysterious organ room. Come at 6:30 pm to share in a simple dinner before the forum begins. To enter, ring the doorbell at the 13 Sellers St. entrance of the church.
Saint Peter’s choir is always happy to receive new members. No audition is required, and you don’t need to have any special training. If you love to sing, you will be welcome. To join the choir, contact our Minister of Music, Paul Keene, email@example.com. Choir practice is Thursdays 6:45 – 8 pm, and the choir warms up at 10 am prior to the second sunday worship service.
