Welcome To St Peter's 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.
