Sunday, November 17, 6:00 – 7:00 pm: Let the exquisite music and gentle cadence of the ancient service of Evensong help to end your day in peace and hope. We will sing hymns and hear Bible readings, and the choir will sing “The Magnificat” and “Nunc Dimitis” by Herbert Sumison, “Almighty and Everlasting God” by Orlando Gibbons, and “Preces and Responses” by Janet Wheeler. To attend, enter the church by its front door on Massachusetts Avenue.
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, whose blessed Son came into the world that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God and heirs of eternal life: Grant that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves as he is pure; that, when he comes again with power and great glory, we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and 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. To join the choir, contact our Minister of Music, Paul Keene, firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
