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.
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.
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 Thursday mornings 9:30-11:00.
a Wednesday evening study will be recessing until the fall.
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.
