Who We Are

St. David’s is a church on a mission, devoted to following Jesus in worship, outreach, diversity, and real relationships with one another.

We are an inclusive, suburban community joyously celebrating God’s love through Jesus Christ. We move to an ancient cadence of worship, fellowship, prayer, and ministry that leads us to new places of love and service to our community and the world.

We invite you to journey with us, no matter where you are in your spiritual life – searcher, churchgoer, or just a person trying to figure out who Jesus is. St. David’s is a place to discover anew, or for the first time, God’s boundless love - and the intimate relationship God desires to have with you.

Our Services

What are services like?
The 8am service is a small, quiet, and reflective service without music and is celebrated in the Taylor Chapel. It is generally 50 minutes long. The 10am service is celebrated in our Sanctuary and has lots of singing, our fabulous Chancel Choir sings - this service generally lasts 75 minutes. Sometimes they're joined by our Gospel choir, Children's choir, or bell choir. Almost all of our services include a celebration of The Holy Eucharist, or Communion. You do not need to be an Episcopalian to receive Communion in our church - all baptized Christians are welcome. (There is also no age-requirement for receiving Communion. So, after a child is baptized and is able to eat solid foods, they are welcome at God's Table.) Near the middle of the service there is a sermon, typically given by our rector, Fr. Chris. It's generally 13-18 minutes in length. You can listen to or read recent sermons on our web site: www.stdavidssf.org - Sermon Library There is a time for coffee, juice, and goodies after the 10am service and there is also an Adult Forum (from September to June), which features guest speakers on a variety of interesting topics.

What is the community like?
St. David's is a warm, friendly, multi-racial congregation seeking to serve the Southfield community. Founded in the 1950's, the congregation strives to create genuine community. We seek to be a place that accepts all without judging. Through our numerious programs and volunteer outreach activities, we offer many opportunities for service in Christ's name.

  • What's written in the 'What to Expect' sections are true. I've tried other church communities and they were not as welcoming as St. David's nor did they fit my religious needs.
