St. Peter's Church in the Great Valley is a historic Episcopal church located near Phoenixville, East Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The current stone church building was constructed in 1744 to replace an earlier wooden building. The original building was a stone structure with a medium pitched gable roof measuring 47 feet by 28 feet. A two-story addition was built in 1856, and the 1 1/2-story Parish House added in 1901. The building was renovated in the 1940s under the direction of R. Brognard Okie. During the American Revolution, the church was used as a hospital by both British and American forces.[2]

St. Peter's Church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
