St. Peter's Anglican Church provides numerous opportunities for the parishioners and members of the community to worship.
If you can use a phone and can pray, then you are perfect for the Prayer Chain. It’s really that simple. You get a phone call with information of a person needing prayer, you call one other member on the chain to pass along the information and then you simply pray for that person and everyone else on your list. Doesn’t require heavy lifting or money, just time in your day. It does however require confidentiality so you’ll have to be good at that. Please contact Aileen Brown to say you’ll give it a try! She’ll be happy to hear from you.
Baptism: Baptism (which comes from the Greek verb “to wash”) is the universal ritual of initiation into the fellowship of followers of Jesus Christ known as the Church. Christians, whether adults or babies, are baptized with water in the name of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Baptism is one of the two holy acts mandated by Jesus. The other is the sacred meal of bread and wine known as the Eucharist.
While people are baptized as individuals, they are baptized into a community of faith that promises to persevere in resisting evil, forgive one another, as God has forgiven them, seek and serve Christ in all persons, strive for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being, strive to safeguard the integrity of God’s creation, and respect, sustain, and renew the life of the Earth. Parents bringing children to be baptized make a commitment to nurture them in the faith and life of the Christian community. All baptized persons are encouraged to participate in God’s work in the world through their gifts of time, talent and financial resources. Please contact the church office at least 30 days before the date of a Baptism for more information about our baptism policy.
Weddings: Christian marriage celebrations the union of a couple in the context of their relationship with Christ and the whole Christian family. Anglican weddings normally take place in the church Sanctuary. Please contact the church office at least 30 days before the date you'd like to get married. This allows time for proper preparation for marriage and for a conversation with the priest about the details of the service. This will also allow you to be informed about our policy on weddings.
Funerals: Christians believe that the end of this life on earth is the beginning of a glorious new life in Christ. Anglican funerals try to balance the grief of the living with a celebration of the life of the deceased, and faith in the hope of the resurrection. If your loved one is approaching death or has died, our priest would be honoured to walk with you and support you in this difficult time. St. Peter's Anglican Church offers various forms of service from the prayer books of the church. These services offer different opportunities for family and friends to participate. The priest and family together arrange the service structure, readings, music, readers, prayer leaders and other appropriate ways to remember the departed. Please contact the church office as soon as possible after a loved one has passed away for more information regarding our funeral policy.
