Welcome to Faith Des Peres Presbyterian Church!

Our story began in 1833 when a group of early St. Louis settlers came by wagon from the east and built an old stone church on Geyer Road.  Fast forward to now and you’ll find us worshiping in a beautiful New England style sanctuary on Clayton Road, serving the greater St. Louis community through our many mission projects, and growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ by actively engaging in thoughtful conversations with people of all ages and backgrounds.  We invite you to join us on Sunday for worship at 10:30 am. Whether you're new to church, haven't been in a while, or looking for a new church home, you are welcome at Faith Des Peres!

What are your worship times?

We worship every Sunday at 10:30 am at the Clayton Road location (main church). On the first Sunday of the month we celebrate the Sacrament of Communion with an open table. Children attend worship for the first 10-15 minutes before leaving for Sunday School except for communion Sundays and PALS Sundays when they attend worship for the entire service.


You have two locations. Which one should I go to?

Normal Sunday worship services, church offices and all functions are at the Clayton Road Church (11155 Clayton Road). During the summer we hold four Sunday morning worship services at the Old Des Peres Church (Memorial Day weekend, Labor Day weekend, and the 1st Sundays of July and August).  We also hold several other events at the Old Des Peres Church, such as an Easter Egg Hunt . 


Exactly where are you located?

Faith Des Peres is located on the north side of Clayton Road, midway between Ballas Road and Lindbergh Boulevard. A map can be found here. 

If you're coming from I-64/40, take the Spoede Road exit, go south on Spoede. Turn right (west) onto Clayton. Go through the stoplight at Geyer Road. Then look for us on the right (north) side of the road. 

Worship is held at the Clayton Road (main) Church, with the exception of Memorial Weekend, the first Sundays of July and August, and Labor Day Weekend, when we worship at the Old Des Peres Church. 


Where can I park? 

Some parking is located in front of the church, but the main parking lot is located behind the church.  There is a handicapped accessible entrance and parking on the west side of the building. To get to the sanctuary, you may use the doors on the east side of the church marked "church entrance" or the front doors.


What should I wear?

There is no dress code here. Our members dress comfortably. For some, this is their “Sunday best” while others prefer simple, casual clothes. Dress as you like.


What do you offer children?

Children are an active and vital part of our faith community. We believe that children are not only the church of the future; they are the church of the present, too.  For information about our education program for children, click here.


Do you have childcare available?

Childcare for children ages 4 and under is offered from 10am - 12pm every Sunday.  We have a professional, trained caregiver who has gone through a criminal background check prior to serving in any area dealing with children. You'll find the nursery on the upper level of the church, just a few steps away from the Sanctuary.
