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.

Reflections on Our Journey to Experience Hope Growing

As supporters of the Anglican Grow Hope Project, a group of 25 parishioners and friends, from as far away as Germany and the United States, gathered early Sunday morning, June 3 at St. Peter’s in preparation for a 2 hour road trip to St. Luke’s Pembina Crossing. We were heading to a worship service and community gathering with many other rural and urban parishes from the Diocese, a BBQ lunch and celebration of the Grow Hope Project in the Pembina Valley. A key opportunity for us was to see the living Grow Hope crop we are supporting. A sense of comradery and anticipation was in the air, with a buzz of voices filling the narthex. Margaret Clarke, our trip coordinator extraordinaire, distributed a map with tips for our travels to St. Luke’s. Off we went with vehicles filled to capacity, some driving in a caravan as we started on our journey. Our travellers were asked for their insights on our experience and these are woven into the story we share with you. Our story is about strengthening community, building relationships, togetherness, hospitality, gratitude, the awesomeness of creation, mission, love, sharing, serving, helping, hope and the amazing goodness of God.
Upon arrival, many participants indicated they felt God’s presence as they reached the crest of the hill overlooking the lush Pembina Valley and saw the historic church nestled below. The sky cleared, the sun was shining and everything was beautiful for a wonderful celebratory day. The church is located near the Pembina River amongst rich agricultural lands and rolling hills.

Mission and Outreach
Transforming News from St. Matthew’s Maryland Community Ministry
For over 45 years, St. Matthew’s Maryland Community Ministry (StMMCM) has been serving the people of West End Winnipeg as a joint ministry of the Anglican and United Churches. Programs have varied over the years, but there has always been a strong presence in the neighbourhood where guests found generous hospitality, food, community, loving care, and a sense of belonging. The Ministry has always been housed on the lower level of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, now part of WestEnd Commons, at 365 McGee Street. The Anglican presence in the Ministry has been strong, first through the parish of St. Matthew’s and, more recently, through the Anglican Consortium in Support of StMMCM. Parishes in the Consortium include St. Mary’s Charleswood, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Matthew’s, St. Paul’s, and St. Peter’s. But transformational changes are afoot!
