St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea is a historic Episcopal chapel on Church Road, southeast of the junction with South Road and Route 1A in Rye, New Hampshire. It was designed by architects Winslow & Wetherell and was built in 1876. It is a single-story structure built of stone and timber, with brick quoining at the corners. It has a slate roof and a small belfry topped by a pyramidal roof. The design is an eclectic mix of Gothic Revival and Stick Style. The chapel's stained glass windows were designed by John LaFarge, the Connick Studios, and Tiffany & Co.[2]

In 1864 Rye's first Episcopal service were first held services at the nearby Farragut Hotel. This chapel was built in 1876 to serve Rye's large summer resort community.[2]

The chapel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
