Saint Martin’s Church, located at the corner of Solon Road and Chagrin River Road – 6295 Chagrin River Road – in Bentleyville (across from the village hall and police station) near the village of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio and warmly welcomes newcomers and visitors.
We are a family friendly and welcoming community of faith with our roots in the Anglican tradition of worship. Pre-COVID we offered two Eucharistic worship services each weekend: 8 a.m. Sunday (Rite I Said) and 10 a.m. Sunday (Rite II Choral). We plan to return to this pattern when the pandemic has been eliminated. Many other ministries have flourished among us, some of which continue to be active in this time of restriction, including Outreach, Bible Study, Educational Series, Ecumenical Participation, Pastoral Care, The Order of the Daughters of the King, and Parish Life, not to mention the many worship oriented programs such as Chancel Choir, Acolytes and Servers and Readers, Altar Guild, and others.
Our professional leadership is provided by our priest The Reverend John Cerrato and by our staff: Choir Director Tim Cochran, Organist Kent Cicerchi and parish administration Michele Baskette. Our governance is centered in a Vestry (church council) made up of parishioners who give of their gifts to manage and care for the needs of the parish. Many volunteers add much to the vitality of our community, serving not only in the Church but also in the wider world.
Sunday morning is our principal time of worship, with occasional worship services offered on Wednesday evenings. CURRENTLY WE OFFER MORNING PRAYER VIA ZOOM AT 10 AM EACH SUNDAY.
