The faith community of St. Peter's gathers several times a week to offer praise and thanks to God and to be nurtured and challenged in its spiritual growth through worship. Our celebrations are marked by a spirit of joy, warmth and reverence. Exceptional music and thoughtful, provocative preaching enliven our Sunday experience of our beautiful Episcopal liturgy.
This is a Eucharistically-centered parish, celebrating the Holy Eucharist several times per week:
- 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon in the Sanctuary
- 8 and 10 a.m. Sunday morning in the Sanctuary
- 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning in the Parish Hall
- 7:30 p.m. Wednesday evening in the Absalom Jones Chapel
- 10 a.m. Thursday morning at The Moorings in Lewes (formerly Cadbury).
Rite II is used for most services.
The Laying on of Hands and Anointing, with prayers for healing, are offered during the Communion portion of most Eucharists. At the Sunday services if you wish to receive unction or to share a special prayer request, please meet a member of the clergy in side chapel during the distribution of Communion.
All God's people are welcomed to the Lord's Table to receive the Holy Sacrament of Communion, including children. The ushers will help direct you to the Communion rail. If physical limitations make it difficult for you to come to the rail, please let an usher know, and we will be happy to bring Communion to you in your pew.
