Welcome to St. Peter's Anglican Church
- We are a people seeking to know, love, and follow Jesus in serving God's mission.
- 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.
What's Coming at St. Peter's
"A Light in the Darkness: Searching for hope when Christmas hurts." Tuesday evening, December 16th, 7:00
Throughout the season of Christmas and the weeks leading up to it people often experience a sense of loneliness and sadness as they don't necessarily feel the 'merriment' that is expressed through all the hype connected to this season. Through music, specifically chosen readings and prayer this service offers an opportunity to find light and hope in the midst of the darkness.This service can be meaningful to many people experiencing various kinds of difficulties, and may also be of particular significance for those who have experienced a loss in the last year.

San Pancho/ San Francisco Knitting Project for Newborns
This February Rod and Susan Sprange will be heading to Mexico once again and are hoping to have a suitcase full of baby clothing to deliver to the village hospital in San Pancho/San Francisco. New or "as-new" items for babies up to 6-months welcome. We are halfway to the goal of 50 pounds and what is most needed now is sleepers for the babies to go home in. To learn more about this project see page 11 of the June Elm Leaf.
Everything changes radically from the moment you know yourself as being sent into this world. . . The change of which I speak is the change from living life as a painful test to prove that you deserve to be loved, to living it as an unceasing "Yes" to the truth of that Belovedness. Put simply, life is a God-given opportunity to become who we are, to affirm our own true spiritual nature, claim our truth, appropriate and integrate the reality of our being, but, most of all, to say "Yes" to the One who calls us the Beloved.

Season of Advent
Advent, the season of waiting, is that time of the year when we watch, wait and prepare for the coming of Jesus... As we begin this new liturgical year and prepare for the coming of Jesus, we are called to listen to God’s word, to act on God’s plan for the world, to live in relationship with Jesus, and to remember his promise to return.
