By stepping out of your comfort zone and giving your time and talents, you can develop a sense of belonging, connectedness and well-being.

It can be fun and rewarding to work with others to show God’s love and care in our church, and in the community.


Why be a Volunteer?

It’s not for the money, it’s not for fame
and it’s not for any personal gain.
It’s for love of fellow man,
It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give the tithe of self.
  That’s something you can’t buy with wealth.  
It’s not the medals worn with pride.
It’s just for that feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward down in your heart.
It’s the feeling that you’ve been a part
Of helping others far and near,
That makes you a VOLUNTEER.


Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something.

If you are able to volunteer your time and talents, call the church office (905-372-3442) and leave your name and phone number. As well, there will be signup pages on the table outside the Great Hall and at the back of the sanctuary. If you phone the office or sign up, you will be contacted and supported.

Here are some of the opportunities for volunteering your time and talents:

CHANCEL GUILD needs new members. Currently, there are only 5 faithful volunteers who ensure that everything is ready for and tidied up after all weekly services. If there are fresh flowers on the altar, volunteers are needed to deliver them to parishioner who are shut-in. Please consider joining this dedicated group.

GREETERS & SIDES PERSONS are needed on Sunday mornings. If you enjoy meeting people and welcoming new comers to St. Peter’s, please volunteer.

A/V EQUIPMENT & SOUND SYSTEM – The sanctuary has a new video system that will soon be used to stream our services live onto the Internet.. Volunteers are needed to assist with this new equipment, and training will be provided. This is a great opportunity to utilize your technical skills, or to learn a new skill.

FELLOWSHIP after worship has not been a regular part of our Sunday mornings for a long time. It is time to bring it back!  During the summer months, we will enjoy Lemonade on the Lawn. Volunteers are needed to set up and clean up. With enough support, a rotating schedule will be organized. In the Fall, we hope to be able to return to coffee, tea, and treats in the Hutton Room, but only if we have the volunteers to help make it happen.

TEND THE GARDENS – Have you admired neat and tidy flower beds and the beautiful flowers that surround our church property? If you enjoy working outside, volunteer to assist Michal and help to make St. Peter’s a gardening show-piece in the community.

SPECIAL EVENTS bring our parishioners and the community together. Willing hands and joyful hearts are always needed. Please call the office to offer your services to set up, and to assist with the event operations. There is always a need for volunteers to help with the tear-down and clean-up.
