Belgrade and St. David's Church, also known as Pettigrew's Chapel, is a historic Episcopal church and home located at Creswell, Washington County, North Carolina. St. David's Church was built over a number of years. It is a cruciform, weatherboarded frame structure with a cross gable roof. It features a late-19th century two-part bell tower with a four-faced, pyramidal, bell-cast spire. Belgrade was built about 1797, and is a small one-story Georgian style frame dwelling with a steep gable roof. It was the home of the home of Charles "Parson" Pettigrew, first Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
