We welcome all who are visiting us for worship on this Holy Epiphany season. You will notice that St Peter's is a specifically Prayer Book Parish theologically as well as liturgically. What this means is that traditional liturgy (services) are the worshipping expression of normative Anglican, (i.e., of the Anglican Communion) belief. We hope that you find your time in our midst spiritually refreshing and beneficial.

Submission of reports for Annual General meeting: If you are responsible for the submission of a report for the annual meeting please do so (in typed or electronic format) no later than Thursday January 16th at 9 a.m.  Fr Hebb needs time to copy and collate said reports.


New offering envelopes are at the rear – if your name is not on a box then please claim a new box and sign your name on the sheet on the wall provided for that purpose. Let’s all do our bit financially and together keep the doors of St Peter’s open for our upcoming 176th year

2 sun-catchers remain available on a first come first served basis - at rear of church $10.00 each

A container for donations to the Rector's Discretionary Fund has now appeared at the rear - please consider supporting this ever increasing need. As well as requests for groceries, Fr Hebb also fields requests for rent -top-up funds, help with heating bills and gasoline money - sometimes to enable visits family members in distant hospitals.

Financial news: If you or anyone you love participates in the life of our Parish please give a thought to its ongoing life, ministry and presence by supporting St Peter's with a meaningful financial engagement in 2014. FYI: The Diocese has recalculated the sum our Parish is asked to contribute to the greater Church each year -  St Peter's amount will be rising from 13,860.00 to 16,419.00. Last year we were able to pay 10, 350.00. Clearly a challenge faces us.

Seven members of St Peter's joined the good people of  St. Mary’s (York) on Sunday, January 5th, for their Festival of Lessons and Carols for Christmas on the 12th Night of Christmas. Mulled cider was enjoyed afterwards.          

A special joint musical service involving both St Peter's Choir and St Mary's choir  is being planned for Candlemas (February 2) stay tuned for details!


New sign-up sheets for Altar Guild 2014 - (responsibilities can be taught new members) and Church Cleaning 2014 are at the rear.

Annual Meeting January 19, 2014 following Congregational Pot Luck!

Needed:  Volunteers for the positions of Vestry members and synod delegates for 2014 - speak with Fr Hebb
