Life-long Christian education is an important part of spiritual formation and growth in discipleship. Through thoughtful engagement and discussion, it helps equip us to think theologically about the often complex issues of daily life. It is essential to all areas of our life together in Christ.
Learning happens in a variety of ways for a variety of reasons. At St. Peter's you may find yourself attending a workshop to find out more about a ministry that interests you, making a set of Anglican prayer beads and learning how to use them, or watching and discussing a movie over a shared meal. All of these can help deepen faith practices and teach us to engage with our neighbours in new ways.
Adult Christian education events that continue from year to year at St. Peter's include:
- Reading for Life Together book group
- Bible and Breakfast
- Lenten Study
- Interactive workshops on prayer - this year watch for Doodle Prayer, and signing the Lord's Prayer
- Dinner and a movie
In addition, for the 2019/2020 learning year, expect to see:
- Indigenous Studies
- A workshop on dementia
- A Black History Month event
- Guest preachers on various topics
