Established in 1705, Saint Anne's Episcopal Church continues the tradition of worship, service, learning, and fellowship that began when the first congregation of faithful Christians gathered here in Appoquinimy more than three hundred years ago and named their church Saint Anne's. As we did then, so we do now, we invite everyone to come and experience the saving grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Come and see. Everyone is welcome.

WORSHIP + STUDY + SERVICE

Saint Anne's Episcopal Church offers a safe and sacred space in which Christians gather to grow in the essential practices of worship, study, and service. Worship, both private prayer and corporate celebration, is the foundation of our Christian life. In worship, we open to receive God's Holy Spirit and to stay connected to the flow of God's grace, which is the source of divine life and love. Study informs, strengthens, and develops our Christian life. In study, we nourish and nurture our faith, going ever deeper into the divine mystery of the revelation of God in Jesus Christ by exploring Holy Scripture and the Christian tradition. Service is the practical expression of our Christian life. In service, we engage with each other and with our neighbors in life-sustaining ministries of hospitality, generosity, and care. If you desire to grow in Christian faith, hope, and love, we invite you to come to Saint Anne's and to join us in Christian worship, study, and service.

Historic Old Saint Anne's

Located on the corner of S. Broad Street and St. Anne's Church Road, Middletown, Delaware
Established in 1705 in Appoquinimy (present day Middletown and Odessa), Saint Anne's Church has two historic sanctuaries in which to worship: the Town Church (which was completed in 1888) and Old St. Anne's Church (which was completed in 1768). Built on top of a hill at the head of one of the branches of Appoquinimink Creek, Old Saint Anne's Church is a beautiful 18th century American church building that stands surrounded by majestic trees and Saint Anne's historic cemetery. Special worship services are offered at Old Saint Anne's Church throughout the year on Sundays and Christian holy days. Please check the Church Calendar for our worship schedule. Private and community tours of the Old Saint Anne's are available by appointment. For more information, please contact the Church Office at 302-378-2401.
