Welcome to Summer at
St. Peter's

From Sunday, June 30th through to Labour Day Weekend (Sunday, September 1st) many of the regular rhythms of life at St. Peter's change. This is the place to find out about all the events and changes that you need to know for a fun Summer with the people of St. Peter's Anglican Church.

Baptism!! Are you or someone you know interested in being baptized? We will be including baptisms as part of our final outdoor service of the year on August 18th. If you are interested in getting baptized or having someone baptized please contact our Associate Curate,
the Rev. Ryan Deyo
for more info. (

Sunday Services

All our Sunday morning services from June 30th through to September 1st will begin at 9:30 am instead of our regular meeting time of 10:00 am. We feel the having a slightly earlier start time to the service allows people to make the most of their Summer Sundays. Like many of our volunteers, our choir takes a break during the Summer months, though our organist does continue to lead us in the musical portion of our worship. Additionally, during the Summer we will not be hosting our regular coffee hour after the service. We want  to give our many hard working volunteers some much deserved time off before we restart our coffee hour again when we relaunch our ministries in September!

An additional note about the livestream of our Sunday Services. Beginning June 30th, we will start live-streaming our services from our new YouTube page! Our services will continue to be uploaded to our Facebook page once the service is completed, but you will no longer be able to watch the live-stream broadcast from Facebook.

Summer of Simplicity

This Summer in an effort to explore and learn more about what it means to be a "Spirit Led People," we are encouraging our community to try out various Spiritual Disciplines or Practices. Our worship life is no exception to this, as we will be bringing the practice of "simplicity" to our Sunday services.

What does it mean that we will be engaged in a "Summer of Simplicity" regarding our Worship times? 

It's back to the books... prayer books that is! This Summer we will be distilling our worship service down to its most basic and powerful elements. An added element (or actually a reduction) of this which will be in contrast to how we do services during the rest of the year is that we will not be using our projector and screen liturgically. We are encouraging those that join us to pick up the books provided in our pews and follow along during worship! All our services will be liturgically taken from the "Book of Alternative Services" with hymns from "Common Praise." With so much of our lives consumed by screens, this is a great opportunity for us to disconnect and get back to our prayer book roots!


Sunday School for Children

With many people going on vacation throughout the Summer months, it can be difficult to properly staff our Children's Sunday School program. We take childcare seriously at St. Peter's and want to ensure that your children are properly cared for and protected while they spend time playing and learning more about God with us. For this reason, and to also allow our volunteers to have a break from ministry, our Sunday School program will be shut down  and not running through the Summer months (June 30th - September 8th)

That being said, we still love when children join us in our regular service on Sunday mornings! Children are a beautiful addition to our Sunday worship and are never considered a nuisance no matter how much noise they make! All children are made in the image of God and we believe the noises they make are a joyful noise unto the Lord! Please feel free to bring your children into the service. We will have bags of toys and activities for young children as you enter into the church, or feel free to bring your own toys! Children are welcome to take up as much space as they need, even if its a whole pew!


Wednesday BCP Services

During our regular worship life at St. Peter's we hold a Noon, spoken word, worship service taken from the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer, which includes a brief homily highlighting various saints throughout the Church's history. However, during the Summer months we do not run this service.
Our Wednesday Noon services will return beginning September 4th.  


Sunday Services Outside!

With the beautiful weather of Summer comes opportunities to make changes to our regular Sunday Morning service. On July 28th and August 18th at 9:30 am, we will be holding our services outside amongst God's beautiful creation. This is an opportunity for us to join with all Creation as we worship Jesus, our God and King! Should the weather not be unpleasant for an outdoor service we will meet in the church instead. Check out our announcements or our Facebook page for more details about these unique services!


Five Friday Nights of Fellowship Campfires

As part of our Summer examining what it means to be a "Spirit Led People", we want to enable and encourage people to engage in various spiritual disciplines or practices. Fellowship is a discipline that in not only easy to practice, but fun too! To help foster this discipline in our community we are going to be hosting Five Friday Night Fellowship Campfires in our back parking lot.  

Join us from 5:30 -7:00 pm at one or all of our campfires throughout the summer. We will be hosting the campfires on July 5th and 19th, and August 2nd, 16th, and 30th. Whether you regularly attend St. Peter's, or are looking for an opportunity to check us out, this is a great opportunity for us to gather together for some good food and good times. We will be providing hotdogs and marshmallows for those interested in cooking over the fire, and we encourage you to bring camping chairs/lawn chairs, drinks, and any other snacks  that you  might like to enjoy!

Should the weather not be favourable to gather outside, we will meet in our parish hall located in the basement of our building and fully accessible from the parking lot. If we are meeting indoors (because of weather) we will also have some board games for kids (and grownups) to play. Should the city issue a fire-ban due to dry weather, we will still gather outside, but will cook the hotdogs indoors, so as to comply with city by-laws.

We hope you can join us this summer!
