No matter where you've been in life, no matter where you’re going, no matter where you are on your journey with God or do not believe; know that at St. Peter’s 
you are welcome at our church.

We are an inclusive and affirming Anglican church worshipping in the modern Anglo Catholic tradition in the heart of South Oshawa. We are a small church striving to fulfil God’s call to create a community of compassion and care for all people. We encourage questioning, dialogue, exploration and doubt. We know that the mystery of God is too great for any of us to understand fully. Together, through worship, community, work, and reaching out to our neighbours and the world we continue to discover what it means to share in God’s love.

St. Peter's Oshawa is a member of Proud Anglicans

Our Motto
“St. Peter’s Feeds God’s People”

At St. Peter’s we recognize hunger takes on many forms.

There is the hunger for daily bread. Many people in our neighbourhood and the world suffer from food insecurity and economic problems. Through St. Peter’s Pantry Services at our Food Bank and Cooking Club and various outreach services we seek in a small way to ensure people have the human right to adequate food, nutrition and care.

There is the hunger for community and a sense of belonging. At St. Peter’s we strive to break down the barriers in our society and to be an affirming and inclusive parish welcoming people of all races, genders, ages, education, social, economic or mental health status and sexual orientations.

There is a hunger for something bigger than ourselves. We believe that bigger “something” is God. At St. Peter’s we believe our spiritual hunger can be fed through worship, prayer, learning, sharing, and working and celebrating together as we all seek a closer connection with God and each other in a community of faith.

Our worship draws on the best of both the older and modern Anglo Catholic liturgical styles. We are a sacramental church and encourage people to worship God with their whole bodies and all their senses. To this end we enrich our worship with chant, bells, incense, holy water, and a variety signs and symbols to all to the glory of God. Please join us as we explore and celebrate God’s world together!
