Parish Ministries

We have many wonderful ministries at St. Peter, Quamichan… and so many opportunities for you to find your place in service to others, so many opportunities to share your spiritual gifts. We invite you to consider where God might be calling you to serve.

Are you skilled at Special Event Planning? Perhaps you love children and would enjoy the opportunity to help out in the Sunday School periodically? Are you skilled at knitting and would like to become part of our prayer shawl ministry? Is outreach to the community something that you have always wanted to do?Do you have an idea that needs to be explored?

Fellowship Team, Our Fellowship Ministry is a ministry of Hospitality at St. Peter’s! It includes a good helping of fun, a hearty portion of good food with plenty of fellowship. This ministry places its focus on fostering the spirit of community at St. Peter’s by offering events that bring together the congregation and others in fellowship through a variety of activities. This committee always welcomes new helpers, too! Come join in.

Welcoming Team, focuses on making those new to the parish feel welcome and at home. We have regular “Welcoming Events” for new members so come on out and mingle and get to know your parish family.

Stewardship Team, The Stewardship Team is committed to encourage education in Christian Stewardship — how we as members of St. Peter’s share our time, talents, and financial gifts with our church family and in the community. Our Team meets monthly to plan for the annual stewardship campaign and for the monthly educational activities in the parish.

We welcome to this Team anyone who is grateful for the many blessings in their life and is interested in giving back — in support of the mission and ministry of The Anglican Parish of St. Peter, Quamichan. Contact our church office to be put in touch with the team leader (stpeterschurch@shaw.ca)

Altar Guild, a dedicated group of people that serves by caring for the chancel area in our church. They prepare the ‘Heavenly Feast’ each week for the Eucharist and arrange the flowers on the altar. Training is provided for newcomers… you are welcome to join us.

Church Cleaners This hard working team is volunteer run and cleans the church weekly. They are always very much in need of help.

Historic CemeteryCemetery Team, a faithful group, often joined by other volunteers, that serves by tending the gardens and property of the cemetery, they get together each week on a Monday evening @ 6pm, April to September, to garden and do general ‘tidy ups’… this turns into a wonderful ‘social time’ gathering over coffee and goodies…after the work is done, of course!

Envelope Secretary, This Ministry is responsible for the careful stewardship of the envelope offering given to the church. The team makes sure everyone gets a tax receipt and makes sure everyone gets a set of envelopes for their annual giving. Thank you to our volunteers for your dedicated work!

First Carpenters, a great bunch of retired gentlemen that serve by keeping our church and buildings in good repair…meets on Tuesday mornings at the well equipped parish workshop to carry out maintenance work as needed and to make projects from wood taken from trees fallen on the parish grounds. They always appreciate a helping hand.

Library St. Peter’s has a very complete library of books and theological texts available for lending.
