St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, is an Anglo-catholic church in Denver, Colorado. Its building, "considered by many people to be one of Denver's most beautiful churches" is a Gothic style church built c.1907-1909 that was designed by architect Ralph Adams Cram. It was dedicated January 17, 1909 as Trinity Memorial Church and renamed to St. Andrews in 1917.[2]

The distinguished architect Cram, of Cram and Ferguson in Boston, Massachusetts, was commissioned to design the building for Alexis Dupont Parker as a memorial to his wife. Parker was a "railroad magnate" of the Colorado and Southern Railway who was educated in the Episcopal Ministry and was president of the board of the Colorado diocese of the Episcopal Church.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]

Expanded in 2008 to a design in keeping with Cram's original plans for a larger church, St. Andrew's now seats 175 in a sanctuary that includes works by Denver artists Marion Buchan and Albert Byron Olson. The parish house is by Denver architect Jacques Benedict.
