If you are new to this area and are looking for a church home, we invite you to join us. If you are not currently an active member of a church or if you have never belonged to a church, consider making your home here.
If you are interested in becoming a part of a diverse family with a common faith that reaches out to each other and to all of God's children, join us.
If you seek a community that is committed to worshiping God and to understanding God's calling, and that does not ask you to check your brain at the door, stay with us for a while: you may already be home. And if you have no idea what you are looking for, you are welcome to search among us.
The Episcopal Church is a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion, with 70 million members in 164 countries. We are a community of Christians bound together by our belief that Holy Scripture contains the very core of all Christian faith and thought, by the many ancient and modern stories that connect us to Jesus and his teachings, and by discovering daily God's hope and call to us through our life together.
Endeavoring to proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ and to be faithful stewards of God's gifts, St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Clifton strives to be faithful in worship, to be a center of fellowship and spiritual formation for all who enter our doors, and to serve the homeless and the hungry through the work of St. Peter's Haven.
