Church Ministries

Saint Peter's relies on all of its members to create our worship and feed our community. Taking part in an organized ministry is a great way to plug into the community and be the body of Christ in action. If you are interested in participating in any of our ministries or want to propose a new ministry, please contact the Rector.
