St. Peter’s has vibrant and active programs for children and youth! Young people are involved in Church School, worship services (as servers, readers, teachers, nursery care, sidespeople, and intercessors), volunteering with outreach projects, in youth groups, and in many other ways.
Peel Interfaith Peace Camp
In the summer of 2017, Jewish, Christian and Muslim children from Peel came together to learn about their shared Abrahamic heritage and celebrate being children of faith. We played, learned and made wonderful crafts. New friendships were formed and we learned about our shared commitment to help others.
We are happy to announce that we are again offering an Interfaith Peace Camp in 2018, from Monday, July 23 to Thursday, July 26 for children going into Grades 2-6. Cost is $75/child. Registration is limited to 12 children from the Christian faith, so register your child quickly using the registration form and return to the Church Office by mail, or in person.
The camp runs out of the Adult Learning Centre near Square One and each day we visit a different faith center. On Thursday, July 26, our parish will host a dinner for all of the participants and their families.
Vacation Bible School
Our 23rd VBS program took place from Monday, July 9 to Friday, July 13, 2018, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The children, ages 4-11, learned about God’s love through Bible stories, games, crafts and service projects for the community. Young people, ages 12-18, volunteered to be leaders for the camp. Together the children and youth made new friendships, deepened their connection to God and experienced the joy that comes from helping others. The cost was $30 for the first child and $20 each for siblings, with reduced fees for those who need it. Thank you to our camp director, Charity Gorman and all the volunteers for making it a successful event.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Church School?
It is an opportunity to discuss the deeper questions of faith and how scripture relates to our lives. We provide a program at the 9:15 am service.
What is Confirmation?
At various times during our lives we may feel a need to affirm publicly what we believe and to make a renewed commitment to live out our faith in our daily live. We welcome your inquiry into the meaning and practice of rites of affirmation in the Anglican Church.
In the Anglican Church we have three formal ways of affirming our faith; confirmation, reception, and reaffirmation.
