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.
San Pancho Hospital
The baby clothes have arrived!
This is one-year-old Brittany and grandma (Mum was too shy to be in the photograph). Brittany is sporting a hand-made cardigan and checking out her new hand-made cuddly duck. A little while later she had a big happy smile as she hugged the toy.
Rod and Susan have delivered the baby clothes, blankets, and other items to the hospital at San Pancho in Mexico. They have sent us a wonderful article, complete with pictures. The items were enthusiastically received with one hospital volunteer commenting that “These hand-made clothes will become family heirlooms, the story will be told for many years” Read the whole story here

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 Lent
Lent is a time to examine our fundamental values
and priorities in the light of the Cross. We are encouraged, in the name of Lord, to observe a holy Lent by self-examination,
penitence, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, and by reading and meditating on
the word of God. Read More
