Diocese of Toronto Youth Retreat
The AYMC is so excited to announce their annual Diocese of Toronto Youth Retreat. We would like to invite all youth between the ages of 12-17 to join us at Muskoka Woods Centre, September 21-23 for a weekend filled with fun, music and spirituality. The theme for our weekend is simply called ‘Home’. Specifically what it means to be Home in God, in community and in building.

New Testament Greek

Health & Healing Program
The Health and Healing Ministry team is pleased to offer SHARE, CARE, PRAYER. This will be a time for anyone who is facing serious physical or mental health issues to come together for support and comfort.
If you have received a frightening health diagnosis you will benefit from coming together with others. Join us at 1 pm in the Chapel every 2nd Thursday each month.
We hope that you will find peace and hope in the midst of anxiety and fear. Hope based on the God of all Creation, who gives life true meaning.

We are trying out something new for young members of our congregation at St. Peter’s started in February 2018. Young people from the ages of twelve up are invited to participate in a youth-focused chat time within the worship service on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. We will leave the service just after the Gospel to discuss together the meaning of the day’s Gospel reading together…a sort of “create our own sermon” time. A small team of parishioners will share the time with them and help keep discussion going. Then, all will return to the service in time to receive the Eucharist. Please pass the word around to young people and make sure they are offered this opportunity to experience the worship service in a new way. The Youth Chat time will start Sunday, February 11th. Ellen Goodeve, Ann Hares, Suzanne Lawson are happy to discuss this with anyone who is interested.
