Sunday, October 20, 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 “Précis and Response” by Janet Wheeler and “Collegium Regale: Magnificat and Nunc Dimmitis” and “My Eyes for Beauty Pine,” both by Herbert Howells. 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
Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Sunday, October 20, 11:45 am: When the sun shines brightly in Saint Peter’s sanctuary, the beauty of our stained glass windows blazes forth. Each of these windows has a story behind it, beyond the scenes depicted. Parishioner James Greenwood will share with us about the people who donated our windows, their historical background, and the artisans who crafted them. The forum will begin immediately following the 10:30 am service.
Saturday, October 26, 2:30 – 7:00 pm: CommonCare is Saint Peter’s meals ministry, a community meal open to all. Join us to help cook the dinner, serve, or clean up, or on Friday night to help cook the main dish. See our video of CommonCare in action and the complete work schedule. To volunteer, please send an email to CommonCare@saintpeterscambridge.org.
