Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will be our guest on a Sunday morning and let us welcome you in person.
The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew (SsAM) is a vibrant and passionate Christian faith community located in the heart of downtown Wilmington, Delaware. As you explore this website, you will see we have a heart for ministry in the city and for the people who live here. Our Sunday worship inspires and calls us to love and serve the Lord in our daily lives and in our encounters with people we meet along the way.
The Rev. David T. Andrews, Jr.
“SsAM will be a dynamic spiritual center which is active in the pursuit of peace and justice in the community, and a place where all of God’s people are honored.”
“To be an inclusive Christian community which worships God, follows Christ in all aspects of our lives, and serves the Greater Wilmington area through actions and ministries which promote peace, justice, reconciliation and empowerment for all people.”
