skeptics, married, single, divorced, partnered, those
who have lost their faith and those who are trying to
find it. Whoever you are and wherever you are in your
walk with God, St. Martin’s is happy to welcome
you to our community.
is a passionate, dynamic community in motion in the heart of Radnor. We are
gathered around the idea that the Kingdom
of God is here, now, and
available by being a loving contribution to this world. We believe in the
goodness and worth of every human being, indeed all of the creatures of God,
and seek to embody that regard and respect in all of our relationships. We are
an historic church, dating from the laying of the cornerstone of the present
church in 1880. For more than 130 years, St. Martin’s
has been holding worship services and serving Radnor and the surrounding
communities. Today, rich in its treasured history and always coming to new life
amid current aspirations, we are a community bursting with life and the
invitation to share this with all fellow seekers.
Our life together is centered in our worship,
offering up our lives, needs and commitments to God and the world, guided by
the rich tradition of the Episcopal Church. We are a church of Word
and Sacrament. We are nourished by scripture through how we bring our lives to
it, as well as how we enact it each day. Our primary sacraments, Baptism and
Eucharist, are touchstones for how God is acting through us in the world, and
offer a chance to gather and love God and each other. Each Sunday, we offer
both traditional ()
and more contemporary worship (10:00) drawing on a wide variety of music,
language and liturgical resources.
We are a congregation of the Episcopal
Church in the Diocese of Pennsylvania. We extend the welcome and love of God to
all who enter our doors, and our communion is open to all who hunger for God.
We offer a wide variety of opportunities for people to be engaged in ministries
of outreach and service, formation and fellowship. Our Children’s and
Youth Program and Sunday School are held central to
who we are and wish to become in relation to the Kingdom of God
that is within and surrounds us. Families of every kind are all welcome here.
We're grateful you have shown interest in St. Martin’s,
and we look forward to visiting with and learning more about you personally. If
you would like to know more about us, please give our priest Chris, a member of
the congregation, or our office a call!
