YOU'RE NEW, WELCOME!

Believers, 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.

St. Martin’s Episcopal Church 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 (8:00 a.m.) 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!

 

…and Martin, a lifelong soldier, thus ripped his cloak on two,
offering half to the naked beggar, swearing an oath unto the Lord,
“Never shall I make war again…”
