Please join us! St. Peter’s Church in the Great Valley is a place to gather in community for fun and socializing, and to help serve others. Throughout the year, we host a number of events that knit our parish closer together and also provide opportunities for people from outside the parish to join us. Additional information may be listed on our calendar.

A note about volunteering

If you find that you have a few extra hours a month, there are a number of ways to give back by serving those in need or the church. It can also be a fulfilling way to connect with people, whether it is with other volunteers or those in the community who are being impacted. View the opportunities for giving back on our volunteering page.

We welcome and encourage the community to attend the following events and activities:

Vacation Bible School – June 17-21

St. Peter’s will host Vacation Bible School half-day camp from June 17-21, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. This year’s theme is “Abundance Orchard: Where Faith Grows and Hungry People Are Fed,” which focuses on issues around food scarcity throughout the world, drawing on Biblical images of feeding as part of each day’s session.
