Clean Up Day

Church Clean Up day is Saturday, May 26th from 9am-1pm (approx). Many hands make like work. If you can spare an hour or two, that would be much appreciated. Bring a friend if they are willing to help out. A lot of the work will be outside as well as in the church proper and parish hall. Cleaning supplies are at the church but if you wish to bring your own, that is fine too.

Cemetery Day

June 10th at 9:15 am will be our annual Cemetery Day. A Piper will lead the congregation to the cemetery after the service, which will be followed by a luncheon in the Parish hall. Rev. Tom Lapp will perform the service in Rev. Terry's absence. All are welcome as we honour those buried in the cemetery. 

Strawberry Supper

Strawberry Supper on June 22nd from 5-7 p.m. Come and enjoy fresh seasonal berries, salads, dessert and beverages. Adults are $15; children 12 & under are FREE. Everyone is welcome. Wheel chair accessible at side door. Need info? Contact 705-436-9769.

Soup Sundays

soupNext date: June 3rd after service. Homemade soup (sometimes chili), buns, beverages and dessert will be served. There will be a good will offering basket for those who wish to make a donation. Proceeds will be used to help in the community. Everyone is welcome to join us. If you have any questions, please speak to either Judy Martin or Mike Hogg. We thank you for your participation in this outreach project.

Calling New Choir Members

If you love to sing, the choir needs you!! No formal choir experience necessary. Practice is after service on Sundays. Please speak to Jean Zielke our organist, if you are interested or talk with any of the choir members. We would love to have you join us. 

Selection Committee

The selection committee elected at the September 10th Vestry meeting will be Karen Lewis,
Mike Burrows, Judy Martin and Myrlene Boken, we ask that you keep the selection committee in your prayers. Update: the church profiles have been accepted by the Bishop; there will be a further meeting at the end of May to choose questions and then names will be given for selection. The process takes time and we thank one and all for their patience.

St.Peter’s New Walkway

IMG_3878
We would like to thank Mr. Elliott of Sargeant concrete for his generous donation and delivery of concrete that was used to repair our church’s front entrance ramp on July 31, 2017.  We are so appreciative of this gift, and for the driver’s patience as we moved the concrete. 

Our church building is over 155 years old and so there is always a lot of upkeep.  This past winter saw some notable deterioration of a concrete walkway at the main entrance.  It became a safety priority as many people require accessibility to the building, and the existing ramp had crumbled.  Our church enjoys a broad spectrum of regular attendees, and so ensuring safe passage and access is of critical importance to us.

Our church provides weekly worship and programs, but also supports many community outreach projects.  Keeping our maintenance costs as low as possible, allows us to optimize our service to the Innisfil community.  Your generous support has helped immensely with our goal.  

Our largest community program is the “Innisfil Christmas for Kids” which started over 20 years ago at St. Peters. This program has grown to include other area churches, businesses, and individual sponsors. Collectively, we supported over 70 families this past Christmas – with food, clothing, personal care items, and children’s presents.  We also provide assistance year round to families, through food drives, provision of school supplies, family crisis assistance, and refugee sponsorship.

On behalf of the St. Peter’s congregation, we are sincerely appreciative of your support.
Warm Regards, John Alksnis, People's Warden, St. Peter's.

Dedication

George Leggett 2Two historical documents were dedicated at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Churchill, Ontario by the Reverend Matthew McMillan. The first is a three-ringed binder of census, births, marriages and death information about the Reverend Canon Morgan and his family. He planted nine Anglican churches in the Barrie area, St. Peter’s being one of them. The second is a three-ringed binder of census, births, marriages and death records for all the clergy who have served at St. Peters from 1856 to the present day. The binders are presented in gratitude for all the years of selfless service to the Anglican Church. The two binders were researched and presented to the archives by George Leggett, who worked endless hours compiling the information.
