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.
A Book Study about Collaborative Ministry
by Lynda Wolf
The recent book study about collaborative ministry marks the beginning of a new stage in the life of St. Peter’s Parish as we work together to support the reign of Christ in the world, in the parish and in each of our lives. The resource text for this study was the book, Collaboration: Uniting our Gifts in Ministry by Loughlan Sofield and Carroll Juliano.
What is Collaborative Ministry?
Ministry is the responsibility and privilege of everyone who has been baptized into the church. According to the authors, collaborative ministry involves each of us identifying our own gifts while recognizing the gifts of others and then using this combination of gifts to achieve God’s mission for the church and the world. Failure to develop a more collaborative ministry results in the mere survival of a church rather than the development of its resources for ministry. At the same time, the authors point out that collaborative ministry is far from a tidy process but can be messy, difficult and even painful. However, they emphasize that collaborative ministry is necessary if we as a church are to live out our witness and common baptismal vocation.
Shared Pain: The Power of Jeremiah's Laments
By Lissa Wray Beal
“You deceived me, LORD, and I was deceived; you overpowered me and prevailed. I am ridiculed all day long; everyone mocks me. Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction. So the word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long.” ‒ Jeremiah 20:7-8
Jeremiah is known as the “Weeping Prophet.” These words are part of a series of laments in which Jeremiah pours out his anger, anguish, loneliness, sense of betrayal, and despair in a form similar to the laments found in the Psalter.

All Hands on Deck
by Vera Sim
I was watching the Laying on of Hands – a practice we have here at St. Peter’s – and wondered why hands were so important to us. Just out of curiosity, I looked up the word ‘hand’ in the Oxford Dictionary, where it read, “the terminal part of the human arm beyond the wrist”. A good description!
