OPEN DOOR PROJECT


Questions? Email opendoor@stpeterslewes.org


We have been dreaming.  We all love St. Peter’s and we are anxious to continue to share and welcome new folks to our community.  Saint Peter’s square is a unique place and we attract folks in many different ways.  We have been dreaming about what the future holds and what God will need our space to be for those who come after us.  The Vestry started to prayerfully discern this in a project titled “Open Door”.


At the annual congregational meeting last November, we shared with you a very rough draft of our vision and you gave us a great deal of excellent feedback.  The Vestry, Open Door Committee and staff have been working on increasing the amount of usable space at Saint Peter’s while maintaining green space.  We know we need more worship and meeting space but want to be sure to keep the special feel and ambiance of St. Peter’s square.  


Phase 1 of the Open Door project will bring additional seating and much-needed bathrooms into the church building. Below are our architects drafts of how that will work and what that might look like. Also below is the presentation Fr. Jeff gave at the 2019 Annual Meeting. 


Campaign Prayer:

Gracious and loving God, you brought our ancestors to this great land and continue to draw newcomers into our midst; open our hearts to embrace the future you have called us to; Grant us the will, strength and courage to live into our vision of being a Sanctuary in the heart of Lewes, with open doors to everyone, and continue to serve our wider community through Jesus Christ our Lord, with whom you and the holy Spirit live and reign, one God, now and forever. Amen.
