Saint Peter's-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church, known locally as The Gingerbread Church is an historic church located at the junction of Ocean Avenue and Lake Drive in Cape May Point, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. Originally built for Philadelphia's 1876 Centennial Exhibition, it was moved to Cape May Point in 1879. The church has been moved four times since, first to get a cooler location closer to the shore, then, as the shoreline retreated, to safer locations away from the shore. It is now near the original site, and much closer to the shore.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
