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.
Grow Local, Feed Global
Anglican Grow Hope Project
Anglican Grow Hope is a new project of Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). It is designed to raise funds for PWRDF projects in a unique way and was developed in partnership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
Our Diocese is blessed to be partnering with the Chris, Leianne and Jonathan Lea family who farm at Pembina Crossing. They are donating 15 acres of their farmland to Grow Hope. To date our St. Peter’s donations are in excess of $2,000 which includes the matching dollars from our Mission and Outreach fund. These donations go towards the cost of the crop inputs. In fact our Diocese has raised the $4,500 needed to pay for this year's grower input costs. The proceeds from the harvested crop are donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and these can grow by 4 times due to the federal matching funds.
On Sunday June 3rd at 11 am we (along with our diocesan sisters and brothers) are invited to join St. Luke’s Anglican Parish at Pembina Crossing for worship and meet the Lea family. In fact Chris is the priest at that parish! Their farm is located right at the parish so we will have the chance to see how things are going. Following the worship service we have been invited to stay for a hosted lunch. It should be a wonderful time. Anyone interested in participating can either sign up on the sheet in the church Narthex or call the office at 204-488-8093. The plan is to arrange car pools (it is about a 2 hour drive each way). Please note we anticipate leaving about 8:30 am and should be back by 4 pm we estimate. If you have any questions please call the church office.

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.
