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.

"There's power in love. Don't underestimate it. Don't even over-sentimentalize it. There's power, power in love… Ultimately, the source of love is God himself: the source of all of our lives… There's power in love. There's power in love to help and heal when nothing else can. There's power in love to lift-up and liberate when nothing else will. There's power in love to show us the way to live. Love is not selfish and self-centered. Love can be sacrificial, and in so doing, becomes redemptive. And that way of unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive love changes lives, and it can change this world… Imagine a world where love is the way. Imagine our homes and families where love is the way. Imagine neighborhoods and communities where love is the way. Imagine governments and nations where love is the way. Imagine business and commerce where this love is the way. Imagine this tired old world where love is the way. When love is the way - unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive. When love is the way, then no child will go to bed hungry in this world ever again. When love is the way, we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook. When love is the way, poverty will become history. When love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary. When love is the way, we will lay down our swords and shields, down by the riverside, to study war no more. When love is the way, there's plenty good room - plenty good room - for all of God's children. When love is the way, we know that God is the source of us all, and we are brothers and sisters, children of God."

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.
