Peter's is an active church with a rich history. With a growing
membership, St. Peter's seeks to worship God, to support the
spiritual growth of all parishioners, to reach out to the surrounding
community, and to preserve our unique Christian heritage for the
benefit of future generations.
Peter's has served as an active center of worship for nearly 300 years.
A member of the Diocese of Albany, St. Peter's existed before the
formation of the Episcopal Church after the American Revolution. The
current St. Peter's Church is the third structure in the parish's
history, the first having been built in 1715.
of the life of the church takes place in the Guild House adjacent to
the church, which houses the church offices, the Sunday school
classrooms, the nursery, the choir room, the archives, a large
auditorium with full kitchen, the Pumpelly Room parlor for receptions,
and upper floor apartments.
Central to parish life,
however, are the Sunday and Wednesday services of morning prayer and
Holy Eucharist. Visitors to St. Peter's repeatedly comment on the
glorious choir music, the thought-provoking sermons, and the inspiring
worship space. We invite you to come worship with us.
