We have much joy in announcing that the Rev. Dr. Derrick Muwina has accepted our call to become our new Rector. Derrick has served as Vicar of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in West Newbury since 2014. Since his ordination to the priesthood in 2002, he has served as assistant, associate, and supply priest for several Anglican/Episcopal churches in his native Zambia and, since 2006, at parishes in Massachusetts. He has an MA in Theological Studies from the Episcopal Divinity School in 2008 and a Ph.D. from Boston University. He is married and has two children. Derrick will begin work on Monday August 5, and his first day to celebrate Eucharist will be August 11. Join us in welcoming Derrick and his family to our church!
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
O God, because without you we are not able to please you, mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
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, just a love of singing.

Choir practice is Thursdays 6:45 – 8:00 pm, and the choir warms up at 10:00 am prior to the second Sunday worship service.
