Spirit Filled, Reaching Out, Inviting


Welcome to

St. Andrew's by-the-Sea


Welcome to the website for St. Andrew’s by-the-Sea, an Episcopal parish serving Little Compton, RI and Westport, MA.  Whether you are looking for a place to worship while visiting the area, or you are a resident of our towns and want to join our Church community, we hope that this site will be helpful and informative.

St. Andrew’s is named for Andrew the Apostle, a fisherman and the brother of St. Peter, who was called to leave his nets and follow Jesus.  When the church was founded 100 years ago in 1914, the vision was for St. Andrew’s to be a spiritual home for the fishermen and workers of Little Compton, and we remain committed to this vision of being a spiritual anchor for the people of our community.  We are a church that is motivated by love for God, as exhibited in our worship, and love for our neighbors, as shown in our ministries of service and care.

Please explore this site and see what God is doing in our lives.  Come and join us at  evening prayer, or at one of our weekly worship services.  You are welcome at St. Andrew’s by-the-Sea  as a visitor, a friend, or a member, and we hope to see you in person very soon.

We are blessed to live in a wonderful area and to have a beautiful church facility.  You can see more about Little Compton and the surrounding towns here and you can see our church facility here.
