We invite everyone in the St. Peter’s community to take part in filling out our Parish Survey. The results of this survey will be used to compose our Parish Profile that will be presented to potential candidates for the position of Incumbent here at our Parish.

We have 2 surveys: One for youth and adults that is to be filled out individually and should take about 30 minutes. The second is one for the children (ages 0-12) in our parish and should only take 5-10 minutes. A paper version of the Youth and Adult survey will be mailed out at the end of November if you would prefer to fill it out in hard copy.

The survey is completely voluntary and anonymous, so please be as honest and open as you want. It is important that you provide as much detail and information as you feel comfortable to disclose in order for us to portray an accurate representation of the dynamics and needs of our parish.

Sidespeople Needed

With the introduction of hybrid services, we are looking for a few more volunteers to be sidespeople. The most pressing needs are in-person sidespeople for the 8:00 a.m and 11:15 a.m hybrid services and Zoom sidespeople for the 11:15 a.m service. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Gary Spence at garyspence@rogers.com or speak to any of our friendly sidespeople. As per Diocesan policy, in person volunteers must be fully vaccinated.

Looking for Tech Help and Zoom Hosts

We are looking for people from youth on up who are interested in joining the hybrid services in-church production team and/or co-hosting the Zoom services. We will provide training. Roles include operating the webcams and sound in the church building, and Zoom hosting which can be done in the church building or online, so that we can have “hybrid” church services. Please contact kyoko.h.kobayashi@outlook.com to indicate your interest in being trained for this role.

COVID Mandatory Vaccination Policy

The Diocese of Toronto is introducing a policy that requires clergy, diocesan employees and volunteers, and parish employees and volunteers to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19. Volunteers who wish to continue doing their ministry in person, please make sure you read the full policy, found here. This policy is to be implemented by September 30th. The bishops and diocesan leadership have decided not to require proof of vaccination to attend worship in an Anglican church in this Diocese, but they strongly recommend vaccination for those who are medically able.

Our Fall 2021 SPAN newsletter is here.
