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.
Primate's World Relief and Development Fund
When disasters like the recent earthquakes in Nepal capture the world’s attention, relief organizations like the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) are on site in short order to assist. But have you ever wondered where this organization came from? And what exactly does it do when there are no large-scale disasters that require its assistance? Read More

Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawls are a tangible sign of our love and concern for one another. They are a comfort to someone who is going through a difficult time, whether that be illness, death of a loved one, or any other painful life challenge. They can also be offered as a sign of love from the community in times of celebration - marriage, birth of a child, going away to college.
If you would like to contribute your knitting or crocheting skills to this ministry, resources, including prayers before beginning and patterns, can be found at http://www.shawlministry.com/.
Completed shawls can be passed on to Shelagh in the office.
The Season after Pentecost
Also called Ordinary Time. It is through the regular worship of this season that we discover
the deeper meaning of the more dramatic seasons of the church year. It is during this season that we discern how we are called to live
according to Jesus’ life, death and teachings.
