Integrity-Palm Beach is a chapter of IntegrityUSA, an official organization of the Episcopal Church for over 30 years, that promotes the inclusion of persons of all sexual orientations in the life of the church.  Chapters sponsor worship services, educational programs, social events, and outreach activities.  There are over 70 chapters in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Africa.  Integrity-Palm Beach is sponsored by St. Andrew's, P3 Proud Parish Partner Church.

St. Andrew's is an inclusive church, open to all.  One does not have to be Episcopalian to participate in Integrity. An active chapter, most months Integrity-Palm meetings average 50-60 attendees, representing people of all backgrounds and sexual orientations.

In addition to monthly meetings, Integrity-Palm Beach is committed to moving the Episcopal Church and others forward in its goal of making the church more open and affirming of LGBT people, and ensuring that all of sacraments are available to all the baptized.  The group is also involved in community service, helping to raise funds for the Comprehensive AIDS Program in Palm Beach County, and sponsors a Mardi Gras fundraiser each year for the Youth Drop-In Center of Compass, the local LGBT community center.

On the second Saturday of each month Integrity-Palm Beach gathers for a service of Holy Communion from 6 to 6:45 pmFrom 7-8 pm an informal supper is served in the parish hall, followed by a program on a pertinent issue by various speakers or artists.  An informal social hour concludes the evening for those who wish to stay.
