Founded in 1764, St. Peter’s is an Episcopal Church and a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We seek to follow God's leading in our daily lives through worship, formation, reflection, and engaging our world. 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 are a diverse community where everyone can find a place at the table, and 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 our local community, in the city of Milford Connecticut, in our region, and around the globe. We hope you'll explore our site to get to know us, and we'd love to get to know you!
There are numerous opportunities for involvement for both children and adults: Acolytes, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, and Greeters. If you are interested, please speak to the Rector - The Rev. Matt Lindeman.
The Choir of St. Peter's draws its repertoire from the rich tradition of Anglican music, ranging from plainsong to living cathedral composers. Highlights of the coming year include a plainsong Requiem for All Souls (Nov. 3), the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols (Dec. 29), Choral Evensong for the Third Sunday in Lent (Mar. 15), and the deeply-moving days of Holy Week and Easter. You can peruse the Music List under the Worship/Music tab. The Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings (7:00 - 9:00 pm). Interested singers are warmly invited to contact the Choirmaster, Fred Backhaus by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calling the Music Office (203-874-8562, ext. 318).
Children are always welcome in worship. We have coloring materials in the entryway to the church available them to stay engaged, and we also offer nursery care for children (Infant -three years old) who are ready to stay in the nursery with our excellent childcare providers.
Church School is available for children ages 3-11 at 10 a.m. on Sunday during the school year.
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 note to parents...Children are always welcome in worship.
We have a vibrant youth program for youth in Grades 6 – 12. Youth participate in a number of service projects, mission trips, and fun activities, meeting every other week.
As we follow the example of the disciples and apostles, we recognize that Jesus' ministry included teaching. We host a number of bible studies, adult education series, book groups and forums, as well as prayer groups for adults.
