Welcome to St. Andrew’s by the Sea Episcopal Church, a friendly community of faith to the young, old, and to the young at heart, a warm and caring church serving both our local community and also our many Winter Texans and summer vacation visitors.
Inspired by our patron saint, Andrew, a fisherman by profession, who became a “fisher of men”, we continue to bring the Gospel to the people of Port Isabel, South Padre Island and the surrounding communities in addition to our multitude of visitors.
St. Andrew’s, located at the point of Yturria Street and North Shore Drive, is an Episcopal Church in the Diocese of West Texas, situated on the shore of the Laguna Madre, with a breathtaking view of the water directly across from the church.
Please browse through the various areas of our website to learn more about our church. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing.
