We offer Adult Christian Formation classes both in-person and digitally.


We use the term “formation” to refer to Christian education, but it means more than just education. “Formation” implies a continuous, life-long journey marked by questioning, wondering, learning. We are being formed constantly as Christians as we strive to discover and define our personal relationship with God.


At St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, we are committed to Christian Formation for all ages, and the opportunities it presents to wade into the waters of deeper spiritual fulfillment. 

Please check our weekly Key News email and the Sunday bulletin current Adult Christian Formation opportunities.

Reccurring Groups at St. Peter's

Centering Prayer Group

Please join us on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30-9:00 a.m. in the church. We enter quietly, and at the sound of the bell, become centered in silence, entering the peace of God's loving Presence.

Foyer Groups

Foyer Groups begin in October and run through May. They are a great way to meet new friends and to reconnect with some old ones. Each Foyer Group is made up of 8-10 people who take turns eating/hosting dinner at their homes. We also have foyer groups who hold dinners in restaurants all over the island.


You can sign up online or contact the church office for more information. We hope to see you there!

Community Garden Project

Over the last several years, the people of St. Peter's have maintained a garden space on 9th Street. This space has been designated as a growing space to be used by our members in partnership with neighbors in Fernandina.

If caring for creation is a passion of yours or you would like to learn about compost and gardening, please contact Rachel Davis to receive our monthly newsletter!
