I invite you to the observance of a holy Lent, and to make a right beginning of repentance, by self-examination; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.

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.
