Rector’s Comment

Ponder this if you will

In his recent work on our Parish Strategy document, Russell Manfield spelt out 5 ‘themes’ for future direction for St     Peter’s. By ‘themes’ Russell is attempting to provide five focal points for guiding our Parish into the future. I’m listing these points below for your consideration and comment please: Towards Financial Security Establish a committee […]

It’s a Messy World

It’s a Messy World It’s always important to consider the other side of the argument. As you have probably guessed from a number of articles that I have written I am a fan of ‘church growth’. But it never hurts to look at the other side of the argument to help keep one’s opinions informed […]

How about doing some dreaming?

How about doing some dreaming? To quote from our strategy document… ”It requires only a small extension to view our church as a potential cathedral in perhaps 100 years time, the major church of a still growing city that has become a seat for a Bishop of a new Gold Coast diocese. The function of […]

Welcome to St Peters Anglican Church Southport

Welcome to St Peter’s Anglican Church! We describe ourselves as having a gentle anglo-catholic ethos with a big heart. We are situated on the beautiful Gold Coast and as a parish we are blessed with a beautiful church and grounds. But more importantly than that – our people are beautiful too (although most are far too modest to say so!)

As a parish we hold to four simple qualities:

(1) Generosity: God has given us much and we should pass that on.

(2) Graciousness: we are a little olde-worlde and see the Grace of God at work in our lives daily.

(3) Practicality: we like to roll our sleeves up and get stuck in, and

(4) Commitment: so many of our folk work hard and long for the parish…and do so unsung!

This year our theme for the parish is ‘Let’s get noticed!’ We have so much to offer and yet a sort of older-generation modesty has meant that we have ‘hidden our light under a bushel’. Recently the city of Southport has been made the official ‘CBD’ for the Gold Coast and St Peters is situated right in the middle. With the city of the Gold Coast predicted to double its population in the next 30 years it’s time to ‘get noticed’ as a parish at the centre of it all.

Join A Bible Study Group

We run up to 3 Bible Studies per week at St Peter’s. Wednesdays at 1100 (generally a study of the Gospels), Sunday afternoons (studies of Church History and formation) and occasional studies throughout the year. Please phone the office if you’re interested in joining us – you will be warmly welcomed.
