Who we are

Welcome to St. Peter's Anglican Church

The search for a spiritual home is an important quest. It's the search for a community of Christian Faith that "feels right" and "fits." It's a place where we feel "we belong" and the Christian gospel is presented in a way that inspires our lives, deepens our faith, challenges our thoughts and speaks to the longings of our hearts. It is a place with a worship pattern that feels 'familiar' but also refreshing. It's a place where the lives of the young, children, teens and young adults are nurtured in a meaningful caring way. You could say it's a matter of taste. At a deeper level it's about the soul's journey towards God. In other words, choosing a spiritual home is a very important decision.
St. Peter's does not claim to be the 'right' place for everyone, rather it is one of the ways by which people can "taste and see that the Lord is good."

History of St. Peter's Anglican Church Calgary AB

St. Peter's History

In 1893, the church began as "The Mission of Glenmore". Services were conducted in a little school house that is now the site of the YMCA on Heritage Drive. Since that early beginning St. Peter's parish has grown and expanded significantly. Over the years we have had six Rectors beginning with Archdeacon Tims (after whom the Chapel in the Church is named) from 1926-1943; Rev. V.S. Crowe served from 1944-1948; Rev. V.S. Ford served from 1948-1952 and Canon Morgan served as Interim from 1953-1955; Archdeacon Robert B. Crowder served as Rector from 1955-1959. Archdeacon Crowder returned to us upon his retirement and we were very fortunate to have him as a very active Honorary Assistant until his death in April 2007.

The period of the late '50s, early '60s was a period of substantial growth, and as a result the existing Church building became inadequate and plans were made to construct a new church on the present site at 75th Avenue and Elbow Drive.

The church building was opened and dedicated on February 21, 1961. In July of that year the Rectory was completed and in 1967 the Parish Hall extension was opened. The Rev. Canon W.I.D. Smith served as Rector during this busy time and retired in 1977.

In October 1977, Archdeacon Robert Pynn was appointed Rector and served until January, 1991 when he was appointed Dean of Calgary and Rector of the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer. In August 1991, Bishop Gary Woolsey joined St. Peter's parish family as the new Rector. Bishop Woolsey, after 35 years of ministry, retired at the end of May, 2002. The following February The Rev. Grant Rodgers came to St. Peter's and served as Rector for 5 years until his move to British Columbia in August 2008. In September 2008, we welcomed The Venerable Richard LeSueur to St. Peter's as Priest in Charge, followed by Helen Belcher. Our current incumbent is the Rev.Dr. Jane Rowland.   Edit
