All Are Welcome

Welcome to Reverend Mo Lederman!

St. Peter’s Church is delighted to announce that Rev. Mo Lederman will be our next Priest-in-Charge! We are blessed God has called her to us and know she will lead this Parish in an imaginative, honest and approachable way. 

Her first official service will be Sunday, July 14th. Please help us welcome her to the St. Peter’s community!

“It is with great enthusiasm that I have accepted your invitation to be your next Priest-in-Charge! What I hope to bring to St. Peter’s is a spirit of ‘Yes!’ With a spirit of joy and deep faith I believe that St. Peter’s can continue to be an incredible, faithful church that is integral to the Cheshire community. I am delighted to be part of that journey with you!”

    what we’re about

    Supporting out Children and Youth

    At. St. Peter’s, your children will learn about faith, the Bible, service to the community, fellowship, and caring for the earth. They will discover that they are loved unconditionally by God and that they are heirs to a rich tradition of faith as followers of Christ.

    They will participate in age-appropriate, enriching, and fun curriculum that teach the lessons and stories of the Christian tradition.

    Building Community Through Our Ministries

    At St. Peter’s, we strive to create community and to help others. Through our ministry groups, we work to build connections with each other, making a space where folks can convene and walk in faith…together.

    Our ministries also work to create volunteer opportunities to support our broader community as well as our parish. Below are a few examples of our ministry groups. Learn more about our ministries and reach out to learn more!

    Women’s Faith Sharing

    This group welcomes anyone who identifies as a woman — with or without children – to gather in a supportive and safe environment, sharing our walk in faith through reading, conversation, prayer, and lots of laughter.
