Welcome To St Peter's Church Gold Coast

Welcome to St Peter’s Anglican Church Gold Coast! Whether you are just ‘passing through’ or considering making St Peter’s your spiritual home, allow me to tell you something about our Church.

Firstly: we value our tradition. Our services of worship are, for the most part, Eucharistic. That is, we focus our worship on the presence of Christ encountered in the bread and wine of the Service of Holy Communion.

Secondly: we value you. We do so enjoy meeting new people, and if we can possibly find a reason to socialize with you (over a cup of tea, at a BBQ or even at our occasional wine and cheese evenings,) we will! If you break bread with us you are one of the family.

Thirdly, we value the grace of God at work in our lives. We live in a beautiful place—the glorious Gold Coast—and God has blessed us with much. How can we not share this?!

Finally (because these sorts of lists need to end somewhere,) we value the community in which we find ourselves: by offering gifts of worship, prayer and music that all are welcome to be part of.

One does not run into God in the streets

“One does not run into God in the streets; one does not—now—run into Christ: but the Church is always there. There are so many who would be ready to admire her for some things at least, in spite of all the faults they find in her, so many who would willing to “cooperate” with her,…

What did the Romans ever do for us?

“What did the Romans ever do for us?” Recently, one of my comic heroes passed. Terry Jones, the (very!) creative director of Monty Python’s Life of Brian, and actor in numerous Python skits, has made his final curtain call. In The Life of Brian he played Brian’s mother and the phrase that ‘she’ uttered: “He’s…

Our Nation

How easily we take the notion of ‘nationhood’ for granted. “We are a nation,” we say, and it seems so obvious that it is hardly worthwhile discussing. Yet, it may come as a surprise to learn that the ‘idea’ of ‘the Nation’ has come under a veritable avalanche of scholarly debate in the last forty…

Stained Glass window of the lamb of God

The Lamb of God

The day after Jesus has been baptised by John the Baptist, we hear John proclaim: “Behold, the Lamb of God!” and, at this point I would argue, the church is granted for all time one of the most powerful images of our Lord: “The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.”…

What is baptism?

What is baptism? In the early Church, candidates for baptism gathered in the dark of night, naked, to wade into the deep. This was no conventional rite. They threw off their clothes to show themselves naked before God—without secrets, without shame. As one ancient writer says, ‘Casting off these fading leaves which veil our lives,…
