St. Alban’s Church, St. Pete Beach
open, inclusive, welcoming
St. Alban’s is a faith community where diversity is honored and celebrated; where acceptance, encouragement and love are given so that all people may explore their journey in faith; and where, through our many gifts, we cultivate a desire to give in thankfulness for all God has given us.
We are a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida and are part of the world wide Anglican Communion. The Rt Rev. Dabney T. Smith is the Bishop of the Diocese. The Rt Rev. Barry Howe and J. Michael Garrison are Assisting Bishops.
As responsible stewards of the church and its property, we are exploring ways in which we can become a ‘green’ church. To that end, we are making it easier to pay pledges or make donations by using the donate button on this website.
The Rev. Gigi Conner is the Priest in Charge.

TRACES OF THE TRADE- February 4 @ 5:30 pmKatrina Browne makes a troubling discovery – her New England ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She and nine fellow descendants set off to retrace the triangle Trade; from their old hometown in Rhode island to slave forts in Ghana to sugar plantation ruins in Cuba. Step by step, they uncover the vast extent of Northern complicity in slavery while also stumbling and stretching their way through the minefield of contemporary race relations. The film aired nationally and was shown at the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2009. It now serves as a catalyst for education, dialogue and action in screenings throughout the US. and overseas.
We begin with a lite pot-luck dinner – discussion follows the screening of the documentary.
