St. Martin's Church is an historic Episcopal church at 50 Orchard Avenue in Providence, Rhode Island.

The congregation was established in 1885 and the Gothic Revival church building was constructed in 1917 to a design Wallis Eastburn Howe to replace an earlier wooden building.[2] It is a granite structure with a squat square three-stage tower at its southeast corner. The parish house, attached to the main building's northeast corner, is a Tudor Revival structure added in 1925.[3]

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
