Welcome to Saint Peter's Episcopal Church, located in the heart of Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.
St. Peter's Church is a diverse parish filled with people from all walks of life — single, married, children, partnered, gay, straight, families, young, and not-so-young. We are Christians worshiping God in the Anglican tradition and committed to life-changing worship and authentic community.
You'll find rich worship rooted in ancient liturgy, real community with people who will become your friends, and relevant ways to help you grow in Christ and serve the people of the Lakeview community and the world.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey — doubting, full-of-faith, or in between, there's a place at God's table set for you here.
