Welcome to St. Peter's Anglican Church
- St. Peter's is a Christian community seeking to love God, grow in faith, and serve the world.
- We invite you to join us.
The Parish of St. Peter is a Christian faith community in the Anglican tradition located in beautiful Winnipeg, Manitoba.
St. Peter's is committed to establishing relationships - with God and with one another. We believe that relationships are critical in our high-tech/low-touch world and we want to create an environment in which everyone has the opportunity for a life-changing relationship with God.
Daily Bible Readings
Have you ever wondered how to make Bible reading a part of your daily life? There are many ways to do this but one resource for Anglicans is the Daily Office Lectionary beginning on page 450 of the Book of Alternative Services (B.A.S). This resource offers daily Bible readings on a two year cycle.
Of course, not everyone has a B.A.S. at home so, for the convenience of our readers, St. Peter's is pleased to connect you with Forward Movement Daily Reading which provides readings for each day based on the Lectionary.
Local Food Options in Winnipeg - giving and receiving
St. Peter's Creation Care team has created a leaflet outlining Winnipeg’s Farmers Markets and local food resources, together with other local food options. See the leaflet here or pick up a copy at the church from the Creation Care bulletin board. Through the leaflet and by looking at the map on the bulletin board you may well discover resources local to you that you never knew existed.
Here, at St Peter’s the sharing table in the narthex provides a way for those in abundance to share with those who have less. Equally, those living in apartments bring organic waste from their kitchens, adding it to one of the church’s 3 composters. Food is collected weekly for St. Matthew’s-Maryland Community Ministry.
“How significant is this”? some may ask. Others may not be aware of these projects - each has been happening for quite some years now. In the light of a recent article in the Free Press estimating the annual quantifiable value of food waste in Canada is $31 billion, it is indeed just a small act of sharing and rerouting. Yet it is in these actions we raise awareness in ourselves and in others.
Thomas Berry, theologian and cultural historian, speaks of the sacredness of the earth and of the universe itself as a spiritual being. “The universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects” thus shifting the emphasis from being solely guardians to being profoundly united with the earth. Jesus, himself, gives value to the everyday gifts of the earth; having compassion on hungry people, he chose the words “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted”. There was and is enough.
Our response is somehow and in small ways to seek to love this one planet we call home. As you discover ways to buy locally and to support local farmers, let us know your stories, the challenges and the joys of shopping locally, organically, directly from thefarmers.
