The Mission of St. Andrews By-The-Sea:
Worship God, Teach the Gospel, and Welcome and Serve All Within Our Inclusive Community.
About the Church
A few yards from the pounding Atlantic Ocean on the North Carolina Outer Banks is an Episcopal church that has provided a refuge from stormy weather for more than 100 years.
St. Andrew’s By-the-Sea is a safe harbor from both natural tempests and the whirlwinds and rough waters that too often characterize modern life. It is a place of peace and contemplation, where the people of the Outer Banks — resident and visitor alike — are invited to find fellowship and to seek and explore the mystery of God through the teachings of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Plan a Visit
St. Andrews by the Sea appreciates your interest in our ministry and extends to you a warm welcome! We want you to feel comfortable with visiting our church.
We believe young children learn best in a happy relaxed atmosphere. We provide a loving, encouraging environment that will foster learning experiences from group participation to individual creativity to the development of new skills while guiding the child to obtain greater independence, social competence, and self-fulfillment.
