St. Peter’s Church in the Great Valley, is a vibrant Episcopal parish with a fascinating history. We were founded well before the American Revolution, as part of the Anglican communion. We are still in a country setting, a little off the beaten track. on sixteen beautiful acres at the highest hill in the Great Valley. We are just north of Paoli, Pa, near the intersection of Routes 29 and 202 and Penn State Great Valley. We are also 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia, and three miles west of Valley Forge National Historical Park
The mission of St. Peter’s Church is,
by the power of the Holy Spirit, to nurture people of all ages in the knowledge and love of God in Jesus Christ, and to make Him known in the wider community.
St. Peter’s has two worship spaces:
— The historic Church offers an intimate, contemplative setting built in 1744; the box pews and whitewashed walls offer a unique experience of worship.
— The Bank Barn, on the other hand, was built in 2005 in the style of a light-filled Welsh bank barn, with exposed wooden beams and a wall of windows in the main worship space overlooking a grassy meadow, and sunny meeting rooms on its lower level where children gather each week for Sunday school.
