St. Peter’s Anglican Church stands on one of the major thoroughfares of a busy and multicultural city as a reminder of God's generosity and hospitality.
We seek to be a place of soulful reflection for those who seek healing and spiritual renewal, a voice of reconciliation in a sometimes harsh world, and a place for dialogue and action in matters of social and political transformation.
We are a community seeking a faithful response to the love of God in Jesus Christ.
I hope your visit to our site, no matter how brief, may be a time to enjoy the beauty and peace of this special place.
The Search for a Spiritual Home
The search for a spiritual home is an important quest. It's the search for a community of Christian Faith that "feels right" and "fits." It's a place where we feel "we belong" and the Christian gospel is presented in a way that inspires our lives, deepens our faith, challenges our thoughts and speaks to the longings of our hearts. It is a place with a worship pattern that feels 'familiar' but also refreshing. It's a place where the lives of the young, children, teens and young adults are nurtured in a meaningful caring way. You could say it's a matter of taste. At a deeper level it's about the soul's journey towards God. In other words, choosing a spiritual home is a very important decision.
St. Peter's does not claim to be the 'right' place for everyone. St. Peter’s is one of the ways by which people can "taste and see that the Lord is good."
Many thanks for visiting St. Peter’s web site. If you would like to meet with me personally, or with one of the clergy, I would be pleased to do so. Pray for every Christian and every community. May God's grace in the risen Christ lead and inspire you in all things.
