Welcome to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church!
May God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and increase your numbers until you become a community of peoples.
We're glad to have you visit Salisbury's Downtown church!
Please join us for worship on Sundays. Free parking is available on the street and in municipal lots. Enter through the tower on Church Street, which parallels U.S. Route 50.
Our church was built in 1887 and is a magnificent example of Italian Romanesque construction, with intricate brickwork and more than 50 stained glass windows. On Sundays our average Sunday attendance is around 150.
Our spiritual leader is Father David Michaud, the rector and clergy person who serves the parish along with our Assistant Rector, Adele Hatfield. They lead our worship and look forward with other parishioners in greeting you when you come to worship.
During the year, we usually have three services (two services in the summer at 8am and 10am). Here’s what to expect:
- 7:45am - Holy Eucharist Rite I – this is typically a quiet, said service, with instrumental organ music. It tends to be our most traditional service.
- 9:00am - Holy Eucharist Rite II – we tend to have more young families attend this service, and people who like the combination of contemporary music with guitar accompaniment along with traditional hymns sung with the organ. There is a staffed nursery available at this service for infants to 5 year olds. Ryan Craig is our song leader.
- 11:00am - Sung Holy Eucharist Rite II (Rite I in Lent)—St. Peter’s Choir leads more traditional music at this service, which includes organ music, chanting and incense, a great high church worship experience. This is the most formal of our worship services. There is a staffed nursery available at this service for infants to 5 year olds.
After each service we have fellowship with one another at our coffee hour in the parlor and you are invited to join us for refreshments and conversations, and to learn more about the church.
St. Peter’s has an active children’s and youth program, with Sunday School on Sunday mornings at 10:15am for pre-K through grade 5, and St. Peter's Youth Group for middle and high school students which meets weekly Sunday afternoons at 4pm. In addition we often have family friendly Parish Party Nights the first Friday of the month and other such events and activities.
