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.
San Pancho Baby Clothes Project
By the Rev. Rod and Susan Sprange
Once again St. Peter’s and friends have overwhelmed us with your generosity in providing baby clothes for the new-borns in San Pancho Mexico.
As we were unable to travel to Mexico this winter we recruited our good friends Ron Boyd and Marilyn Meakin to transport the heavy suitcases to Mexico and then arrange transportation from their friend Bertha to San Pancho, an hour and half outside of Puerto Vallarta.
Here are some photos and a few excerpts from Ron’s email describing their visit to the hospital where Anna-Louisa (head paediatric nurse) gratefully received the clothes. And some comments from Michel, the volunteer who coordinates the clothing project.

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.
Why Go to Church in Holy Week
The crucifixion of Jesus on the cross and the resurrection of Jesus two days later are the two events that are at the heart of the Christian gospel. In order to truly celebrate Easter, we must first have walked with Jesus to the cross. For this reason, please plan to make the Holy Week events a priority.
We share a celebratory meal which incorporates foot washing and the Eucharist. It concludes with a solemn walk from this celebratory time into the church which is stripped and made ready for the solemnity of the next day.
