St. Peter's Episcopal Church is an historic Episcopal church located at 239 Second Aveune at Adams Street in Seward, Alaska. The first Episcopal services in Seward were held in 1904 by a priest from Valdez. The church building was constructed between 1905 and 1906 and was consecrated on April 1, 1906 by the Rt. Rev. Peter Trimble Rowe, the first bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska. The interior of the church is noted for the 1925 reredos of Christ's Resurrection and Ascension which was done by Dutch artist Jan Van Emple.
St. Peter's is still an active Episcopal parish.
