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.

A Surprise Visit to a St. Peter's Namesake
By Lissa M. Wray Beal
On a recent trip to Bermuda (a wonderful escape from Winnipeg’s post-Christmas snowstorms), my husband Steve and I spent a day in the historic town of St. George. The original town was founded in 1609 by temporarily-stranded shipwreck passengers enroute to the Jamestown settlement. It is now a UNESCO world heritage site and, in the off-season, a lovely place to spend our New Year’s Eve day.
We took part in a walking tour, hearing stories of the houses inhabited for centuries and now inhabited by modern families. We saw the old harbor, and, once the tour was over, enjoyed a bowl of typical fish chowder (complete with sherry pepper sauce). But the delight of the day was discovering that the town’s parish church had a very familiar name: the Parish of St. Peter!
