why should I consider joining?

Thoughtful people are asking….What is EfM and why should I consider joining?

EfM is the acronym for Education for Ministry, a distance learning program of the Episcopal Seminary in Sewanee, TN. 

It is a four year program of study, group reflection/discussion, worship, Christian community and spiritual friendship

More details available at


Have you ever read a book that really engaged you and made you think? Or, watched a movie or heard a talk show or had a conversation that seemed to challenge your view of life or your faith? Have you ever opened the Holy Bible but found it too difficult to understand how it could relate to questions raised by life’s big and little questions? Do the current political issues within the church frustrate you and cause you to wonder if the church has ever before gone through such turmoil? Did you come to the Episcopal church from another Christian denomination or another faith and wonder what the Episcopal church “thinks” about this or that? Do you sometimes think that you are the only one who struggles to understand your faith? Do you love the thoughtful sermons preached every Sunday at St. Peter’s but wish the conversation could continue? If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions you might be a good candidate for EfM.

Welcome to St. Peter's

Sanctuary in the Heart of Lewes

Saint Peter's Episcopal Church serves the city of Lewes, Delaware, and the surrounding community. Located in the heart of the First Town in the First State, Saint Peter's is one of the oldest congregations in the state of Delaware. The church has served the community faithfully since 1681.


Today, Saint Peter's is more active than ever. We are a warm, welcoming congregation with warm and welcoming clergy. We invite anyone seeking a relationship with Christ to join us.

We are open for in-person worship. Masks are voluntary.

For more information about our worship, children's programs or our nursery, please call Saint Peter's Parish office at [302] 645-8479, or email Our office hours are 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday.


The mission of St. Peter's Church is to share the love of God through worship, Christian formation, and reaching out to those in need in the community.


Secondary Title

"Jesus said therefore, ‘What is the kingdom of God like?

And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed

which a man took and sowed in his garden;

and it grew and became a tree,

and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.’”

                                                                                            —Luke 13:18-19

St. Peter’s continues to be a dynamic and growing community of faith providing a sanctuary in the heart of Lewes, open and welcoming to all. So far in 2016 we already have 24 new households worshiping with us. Our church can be likened to the trees in the parable of the mustard seed, providing a place for birds, our ministries, to grow. Birds supported in our trees include, among others, pastoral services, outreach, worship, music, Christian formation and parish life. Our ministries provide wonderful and needed services to parishioners, those seeking to learn about the Lord, and those in need throughout the Cape region. All of the property, administration and ministries done by St. Peter’s of course require financial and volunteer support. Please take some time to consider what St. Peter’s means to you personally and the greater community. Then determine what you can do to support the church.

Pledging.  Pledging is the primary way to financially support St. Peter’s. A Pledge is your estimate of what you expect to give to the church during the next year. It isn’t a binding commitment and can be modified at any time. It can be given weekly, monthly, or annually. Your pledge goes to support all aspects of the church. By pledging, you’re providing the Vestry with the information it needs to generate a realistic budget and to plan for next year’s activities.

Join us on November 6, as we give offer gifts to God and join in "Growing St. Peter's in 2017." 

Pot Luck Luncheon and Annual Meeting.  As in previous years, we will have a Pot Luck lunch after the 10 a.m. worship service on November 6.  Please bring a covered dish to share.  The Annual Meeting will follow at noon.  Both will take place in the Parish Hall.

For additional information or if you have any questions, please contact Bob Fischer, Stewardship Chair or click here.

  • Baptism at St. Peter’s Church

    The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is celebrated according to the canons of the church and the rubrics of the Book of Common Prayer. By Baptism, we become full members of the Body of Christ and His Church. Baptisms are therefore part of the public worship of the church and are not performed privately but rather during one of the principal Sunday services. It is expected that persons who are Baptized at Saint Peter’s will answer affirmatively the questions asked in the baptismal covenant, particularly concerning their participation in the life and ministry of this parish. When we baptize infants and small children, it is expected that their parents and/or guardians will assist their children in regular attendance at worship and in the life of the congregation.

    The Book of Common Prayer directs that it is especially appropriate for Holy Baptism to be performed at these feasts: The Baptism of our Lord, The Great Vigil and Easter, Pentecost Sunday, and All Saints Sunday. It is also appropriate to celebrate Baptism at the visitation of our Bishop. In addition to the dates listed above, a baptism may also be scheduled on other Sundays of any month other than those listed above. Except in the case of extreme emergency, baptisms will not be performed in the season of Lent.

    Before the Baptism is celebrated there is always instruction for the individual and/or parents. Godparents are also strongly urged to be participants in this instruction. If you wish to be baptized or to have your child baptized, please speak with Fr. Jeff. 


  • Blessings for Birthday and Anniversary

    Our congregation enjoys receiving blessings for birthdays and wedding anniversaries.

    Pet Blessing

    Each year on the anniversary of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Peter's holds a blessing ceremony for our pets.

  • Confirmation & Reception

    Confirmation is a pastoral rite in which a mature person, who was baptized as an infant or young child, reaffirms his or her baptismal vows with a blessing and laying on of hands by the Bishop. Reception is a similar rite in which a Christian, who has been baptized as an adult in another tradition, is received into the Episcopal Church by means of a blessing and laying on of hands by a Bishop. The Bishop visits Saint Peter’s Church once every year, in part to Confirm or Receive new members into the Church. Prior to his visit, those wishing to be Confirmed or Received, will be prepared by Fr. Ross through study, prayer and contemplation. If you are interested in being Confirmed or Received, please speak with Fr. Jeff.

  • Funerals and Memorial Services

    The death of a child of God is a tender event. Members of the church are urged to call Fr. Jeff as soon as possible when death is anticipated or has come, in order that he may bring the comfort of our faith and the presence of the church family. In addition, parishioners are encouraged to sit down with the Rector ahead of time to make advance arrangements. It is appropriate for the funeral of a Christian to take place in the Church. A viewing can also be held in the parish hall or the church prior to the service. The service should be held at a time when the congregation has an opportunity to be present. Members and their families may also avail themselves of the Pilottown Cemetery. 

    St. Peter's Pilottown Cemetery Policy & Operating Procedures- Download PDF

    St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is available to the community to conduct weddings, funerals and memorial services in accordance with the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer and the traditions of the Episcopal Church.  


  • Holy Unction & Sick Calls

    All parishioners are strongly urged to inform the church when they or a loved one are seriously ill and/or hospitalized. Our clergy are very willing to visit and pray with members of the congregation at any time, but especially when they are in need. When you call the office, please let the staff know if you or your loved one would like to be anointed with the oil of the sick (Holy Unction) for healing and/or have Holy Communion brought to you.


    Entering a Holy Union or marriage is a major rite of celebration in the Christian community. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is available to the community to conduct wedding services in accordance with the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer and the traditions of the Episcopal Church.

    St. Peter's will provide service to anyone if at least one partner is a baptized Christian. In the course of this celebration, a couple declares before God and the congregation that they are knowingly and without reservation entering a relationship that has consequences for them and for society as a whole. When two people present themselves for a Holy union, they are declaring that they are a part of the Christian community and are, or desire to begin to be participants in the life and witness of the faith community.

    In order to uphold the integrity of both the Sacrament of Holy unions and to provide a setting in which the couple and their families and friends can celebrate its joy, the following policies and procedures are adhered to in this parish. For more details about weddings at St Peter's download the document provided in the link.

  • Prayer Vigils

    At various times during the Christian year it has become a tradition at St. Peter’s to hold a prayer vigil in the Church. In preparation we make certain that at least one person is responsible for one hour, but more than one person is welcome to participate at any given hour. The hour may be spent in reading the scriptures or other devotional literature that is made available, in meditation, or prayer. This is done for the purpose of making intercession for the worshiping community in its ministry. Traditionally we have a Prayer Vigil beginning the evening of Maundy Thursday that goes through Good Friday, as well as before and during events that affect the parish and world.

  • Ordination

    This sacrament is the setting apart, by the laying on of hands and prayer by a bishop, of a person, to function in the Ministry of Word and Sacraments in the Church. There are three orders of ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church: Bishop, Priest and Deacon. Those who are contemplating a vocation of ministry should speak with Fr. Jeff.

  • Reconciliation

    The sacrament of Reconciliation is a rite by which a minister of the church absolves and offers forgiveness of sin to a penitent in the name of Christ and his church. The sacrament is also known by the term confession and is available to anyone who feels that sinful events in their life have caused a block in their relationship with Christ. It is by no means mandatory, but is rather a means offered by the Church to help reconcile individuals to God and to receive counsel in restoring their relationship with Christ. It is celebrated upon request to Fr. Jeff.

  • Support Groups

    The gathering of small groups of people for the purpose of support, healing and well-being are profoundly helpful for persons facing serious challenges in life. These groups arise on an as needed basis. Effective support groups are usually composed of four to eight persons, have a primary purpose, require a commitment to confidentiality and to meet for a limited period of time. At the end of this predetermined time, the group decides whether to continue to meet for another specified period of time or to conclude. Further information may be obtained by calling the church office.
