The Nativity Pageant

The Nativity Pageant sign-up and first rehearsal will be on November 29 following the 10:00 a.m. Service. 

Prayer Ministry

Prayer Ministry: " Daughters of the King" is an order of women who have committed to pray daily for their church. This ministry of prayer is critical to the health and success of ministry in a parish.  No matter how much effort we put into the work of the Holy Spirit it is the Lord who makes our work fruitful and effective, so this prayer support is vital!  " Daughters of the King" pray independently at home each day and gather together to meet and pray about once a month. If this sounds like a ministry you feel called to, please speak with the Rev. Cynthia Knapp, as we are considering starting a chapter at St. Peter's.  

A Young Family Christmas Party

A Young Family Christmas Party will be on Saturday, December 5th from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00p.m.  The young family fellowship group is for those young adults, either single or married, whose children are still very young ( approximately six years and younger ).  While there is no real age "cut off" the crafts will be geared toward little ones. There will be a potluck supper, so please let Kelly Thomas or the church office know what you can bring and how many of you there will be.  You are welcome to bring friends who might like to learn more about the church and would like to join in the fun.

Healing Service Sunday

Healing Service Sunday will be December 6th at 5:00 p.m.  The holidays can be a challenging time for those who are dealing with difficulties or illnesses and for those who have lost loved ones.  This service is a Eucharist service with scripture, music and a homily focused on healing and extended time of prayer for healing with stations for prayer.  We hope this time will be a blessing to our own parish family and to anyone else who would like to come.

St. Peter’s was founded in 1764 as a parish of the Church of England.  St. Peter’s is an Episcopal Church, and a part of the world wide Anglican Communion.  We uphold the authority of scripture and seek to follow God's leading in our daily lives. We welcome all persons who are searching for meaning and purpose in their lives and who wish to learn more about the Christian faith.   We invite those who are seeking a spiritual home to affirm their faith and grow with us.

Inside St. Peter’s

St. Peter’s celebrates life, not only within our walls, but also outside in the local community and around the globe.

Christian Formation

Church School is available for children ages 3-11 at 10 a.m. on Sunday and younger children are cared for in the nursery. Visitors are encouraged to have children attend a class. One of the Greeters or Ushers can direct you to the nursery. The Church School aged children should begin in the service with their parents and will be brought up to their class by their teachers following the children's message. A youth program is also offered for children in Grades 6 – 12.

Bible Study

St. Peter’s offers adults the opportunity to grow in their faith through various bible study opportunities:

a Bible study that meets Tuesday mornings at 7:00-8:15 am is studying the book of Joshua.

a women's Bible Study that meets Tuesday mornings 9:30-11:00 that is currently doing a Beth Moore study on 1 and 2 Thessalonians,

a Wednesday evening study beginning Jan. 14th at 6:30pm called "True Spirituality" that is part of the "Living on the Edge" series by Chip Ingram.

a Thursday night Alpha class beginning January 15th at 6:30 is an exploration of the Christian faith that is helpful development for those newer to the faith and enriching for seasoned Christians.  


We are committed to serving the community by serving those in need through our various mission and outreach opportunities.


Free monthly meals are served to the public. We have participated in Habitat for Humanity and Homefront – building and repairing homes locally.  We are a founding member of Milford Pastoral Counseling Center and Beth El Center.  We provide regular support to the Milford Food Bank.  We also provide backpacks and gifts at Christmas for children in need through our Giving Tree. Our Prayer Shawl group knits shawls for cancer patients, new moms and others in need of comfort and prayers. They also provide hats for the homeless and for cancer patients at Yale New Haven Hospital.


Since February 2008, St. Peter’s has sent parishioners to build a home for a family in Juarez, Mexico. Funds have been raised to sponsor at least 11 “arks” for Heifer International, providing livestock for families in developing countries.    Donations have also been given to support other mission efforts throughout the world.
