On Sundays we offer two services of Holy Communion at 8:15 AM and 10:30 AM.
Our 8:15 service is a traditional language spoken service using liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer.
Our 10:30 service is a contemporary language spoken service using liturgy from the Book of Alternative Services.
There is a staffed nursery and junior church during the 10:30 service from September through May).
At 8:00 am on Mondays and Fridays we have a short morning prayer service in our Lounge. Our service includes Bible readings and prayers. It's a great way to start your morning and you will be on your way by 8:30 am.
Services of Holy Communion
Join us Wednesdays at 7:00 am and Fridays at 12:15 pm for a weekday service of Holy Communion. This is a spoken service and is a great way to spend some time in worship in the middle of your busy work week. Some of our major feast days (Saints' Days) are celebrated at these services. At our Friday service, we offer anointing with oil and healing prayer. Since we are all in need of healing, this service is truly for everyone. Come and see.
St. Peter & St. Paul’s is a community of prayer. We value prayer as the undergirding of our faith and life, and as the chief means by which we commune and communicate with Jesus, experience an intimate relationship with Him, and invite and discern the Lord’s direction in our lives. Some examples of the ways in which we surround our corporate life with prayer are:
Tuesday evening prayer meetings take place at the church on the first and third Tuesdays of each month (from September through May). We gather at 7:00 pm to seek the Lord's face through Scripture and prayer. We spend time adoring and praising our God and also interceding on behalf of the needs of our community and our parish. Please join us for this special time of prayer
Prayer Teams, who minister to all who seek prayer for any concern during the communion time at the 10:30 am service. These prayer ministers are trained, and meet regularly with staff clergy.

At St. Peter & St. Paul’s we try to make our church a welcoming place for all. This includes the following measures for those with special needs:
Building Accessibility: We are currently in the midst of a major building renewal project, which will result in full accessibility throughout our church and parish hall. In the meantime, our building is not fully accessible, but we do have a ramp to the back door from the parking lot and a washroom on the main floor with grab bars. There is a short flight of stairs to enter the sanctuary from our parish hall. We look forward to later this year when those who cannot manage stairs will have full accessibility to our worship space.
Large Print Resources: Large print Bibles are available in the church.
Sensitivity to Gluten: Gluten-free wafers are provided at Holy Communion for those who require them, and they are served on a plate separate from the regular wafers.
