Historic St. Peter’s Chelsea Episcopal Church is an inclusive faith community celebrating God’s unconditional love for all.
Founded in 1831 to serve the growing neighborhood in the Spirit of Jesus, we strive to anchor and engage the community through worship, serving those in need, civic responsibility, activism, music and the arts in Chelsea and beyond.
All Are Welcome Here!
We are fortunate to worship in one of the most historic and beautiful church buildings in New York City, built in 1838, and coupled with a landmarked Rectory, from which we feed the hungry and care for the needy.
St. Peter’s is often referred to as “The Christmas Church” because of founder Clement Clarke Moore, who created “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” the world’s most famous Christmas poem. Come visit and sit in the buildings original pews, enjoy our Tiffany and J&R Lamb Studios stained glass memorial windows, outdoor garden, Children’s Corner and more! You can learn more about our history and art by clicking the About Us tab above.
Arrive prior to 9:55am for the 10am Service, and ask to ring the historic Allaire Clock Tower Bell!
With blessings of peace,
Your friends at St. Peter’s Chelsea
