St. Peter’s Statement Concerning Racism and Racial Injustice

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church strives to be a place of unconditional welcome and a beacon of God’s love in the heart of Charlotte. Our mission is to nurture a community of courageous followers of Jesus and to inspire love of God and love of neighbor.

Because love is at the heart of who we are, we believe Black Lives Matter. We stand with all those who combat systemic racism and racial injustice, and we pledge to do our part to make the Queen City a more equitable and just place for our black siblings. We are committed to be a loud and clear voice in our community for racial equity by advocating for the reform of unjust policies and practices, and continuing to be a place of transformation and unconditional welcome.

We hope you will join us in this ministry of reconciliation, which is the restoration of all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
