About Us

Welcome to St. Martin’s-in-the-Field Episcopal Church. We are a busy church located in the heart of Severna Park, and a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland as well as a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion. We are a parish family worshiping together and working together, praying together and playing together – building moral community together.

At St. Martin’s it is our vision and our purpose to help people connect with Christ and each other recognizing that we may ask different questions, seek different answers, knock at different doors and be following different paths. We believe that our various journeys ultimately converge in a fuller understanding of and relationship with each other and with God in Christ.
~ The Reverend Matthew Hanisian

Rooted in Christian Formation

Since our inception, worship has been at the heart of our life together as a congregation. Our parishioners and clergy are at the forefront of bringing Christian Education to the people of St. Martin’s. Christian formation or spiritual growth, is a core value for our congregation. Many classes, for adults, youth and children, are offered throughout the program year to strengthen our connection to our Episcopal roots.

Serving through Outreach

Another vital aspect of St. Martin’s ministries is our mission efforts. Our members are encouraged to share their gifts and talents with others through our many ministries. St. Martin’s has dozens of outreach and mission ministries taking the love of Christ out into our neighborhood, our community and our world.  Come and find a ministry that speaks to your heart and help us change the world.
