About Our Church
"Let brotherly love continue." Hebrews 13:1
Saint Peter the Apostle Anglican Church incorporated in April, 2010 in the home of Dr. Warren Smith, one of the founding members. St. Peter’s joined the Anglican Province of America (APA), a continuing Anglican Church using traditional doctrine and liturgy.
Both Holy Communion and Morning Prayer Services were held in private residences and the Kingsport Renaissance Center. With God’s grace, we located and purchased the current location at 3321 Thornton Drive in 2012. Since purchasing the building, we have created a beautiful church with a sanctuary, fellowship hall, nursery, complete kitchen and clergy office.
For more information on the APA see our Digging Deeper page.
Our mission is to bring people to Jesus Christ and to incorporate them into the community of faith through our Historic Anglican Tradition.
We are a small, friendly, and growing community of faith, worshipping our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in the traditional Anglican Way. We use the liturgy of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the King James Version of the Bible. We use The Hymnal 1940 accompanied by traditional organ music for praising God. Our services are traditional, liturgical, and reverential. As Anglicans, we kneel to pray, stand to praise, and sit to listen.
For more information on all things Anglican see our Digging Deeper page.
In addition to Sunday morning services (either Holy Communion or Morning Prayer), we have an active Christian education program with topics ranging from the study of various Bible books to the history of Anglicanism. Other activities include once a month Family Night Out lecture series, Women’s Bible Study group, monthly congregational luncheons, and visiting ill or elderly members, providing them with meals as needed. We also support the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child and Shades of Grace Ministry in Kingsport.
We invite all to join our Christian Family as we worship the Lord and enjoy the company of other Christians. We strive to love one another because our Lord Jesus told us that “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35).
