Thought for Day:
You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith, and hope.
St Peter’s – a place to belong
We are the Anglican parish church for Takapuna, Belmont and surrounding area and are committed to growing as disciples of Jesus Christ and, in turn, growing new disciples.
We believe that Jesus sends us to share our faith with everyone we meet, telling them of His love and His great desire for us all to be reunited with Him.
Through our worship services and events, we seek to communicate His message in relevant and practical ways. We enjoy a variety of worship styles from the quiet beauty of the Book of Common Prayer, the lively Sung Eucharist to more informal and personal gatherings in homes.
The early Christians met to devote themselves to studying the Scriptures and to worship. They were also devoted to having meals together, praying for each other, and looking after each other. Two thousand years later we haven’t stopped!
If you feel ready, you can put your roots down at St Peter’s, become established and begin to participate and contribute to what God is doing in our community. Involvement is the route to belonging – the more you give of your gifts, time and talents and invest in the community the stronger your sense of belonging. At St Peter’s there’s a place for everyone with lots of ways to contribute – from serving in some way during worship, leading a group, helping with children or youth and using your practical skill to support others. We’re a growing, serving community – with lots of options for involvement!
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to know more about us and what we do or if we can assist you in any way.
