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.
Greetings from Down Under
Ray and Fenella Temmerman
Greetings friends at St Peter’s. We read of events with interest – now Linda’s departure with sadness and gratitude for all she has given, then the imminent welcome for the refugee family from Iraq. We celebrate with you from here in Australia.
For those who do not know, Ray and I are here for just over a year, now living for six months on the Far South Coast of New South Wales. We are following a dream for this time in our lives, Ray working on a doctorate out of Sydney College of Divinity, while I explore what I would name creative, contemplative and conservation pathways.
Follow the link to a snapshot of parish life in Australia from each of us; we find ourselves increasingly grateful for all that surrounds us, all that is in us.
