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.
Three Fallacies of Scarcity
As part of St. Peter's Stewardship program we have been presenting short “Stewardship Moments”. This year's theme has been ‘Three Fallacies of Scarcity’.
The worlds of media, politics and industry fill our waking moments with the fear of scarcity and the urgent need to consume and acquire more possessions. That’s how we are told to measure success. The reality of God’s world is that there is an abundance to share. The Gospel encourages us to achieve fullness of life by giving, sharing and working towards bringing about the world God has always intended.
The following are personal reflections from three of our preachers, each speaking to one of the three fallacies of scarcity:
- There Is Not Enough to Go Around;
- More Is Better; and
- That’s Just the Way It Is…”
We hope you find these reflections bring you a sense of hope and help you to think about how these fallacies may be influencing your life.
Mission and Outreach
Transforming News from St. Matthew’s Maryland Community Ministry
For over 45 years, St. Matthew’s Maryland Community Ministry (StMMCM) has been serving the people of West End Winnipeg as a joint ministry of the Anglican and United Churches. Programs have varied over the years, but there has always been a strong presence in the neighbourhood where guests found generous hospitality, food, community, loving care, and a sense of belonging. The Ministry has always been housed on the lower level of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, now part of WestEnd Commons, at 365 McGee Street. The Anglican presence in the Ministry has been strong, first through the parish of St. Matthew’s and, more recently, through the Anglican Consortium in Support of StMMCM. Parishes in the Consortium include St. Mary’s Charleswood, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Matthew’s, St. Paul’s, and St. Peter’s. But transformational changes are afoot!
