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.

The Season of Lent

The first Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord's passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church to prepare for them by a season of penitence and fasting. This season of Lent provided a time in which converts to the faith were prepared for Holy Baptism. It was also a time when those who, because of notorious sins, had been separated from the body of the faithful were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness, and restored to the fellowship of the Church. Thereby, the whole congregation was put in mind of the message of pardon and absolution set forth in the Gospel of our Savior, and of the need which all Christians continually have to renew their repentance and faith. The Church therefore invites all faithful people to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word.

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.
