Mission Project for St Peters Candelo
Exciting progress continues to unfold with the mission project at St Peters Candelo. A range of community members have expressed they wish to share and engage in the vision and development of St Peters as a space for worship and celebrating the arts, along with other ways to reach out to people seeking to explore matters of spirituality and faith. We have been regularly delighted and encouraged by community members in this area of the Parish who are clearly seeking ways to connect with the church. Our responsibility therefore is to make Jesus accessible to them.
This will be achieved through:
- The provision of a suitably accessible, flexible space for the community to engage in range of activities and events
- Providing a welcoming space and forums for exploring matters of life and faith
- Using liturgy and worship creatively to connect the broader community with the sacramental presence of Christ
- Being present in the local community, walking alongside them, being a nurturing and loving presence
We are aiming to commence regular services of Holy Communion at 5pm on the first Sunday of each month beginning in February. Please let us know if you have any particular insights or ways you would like to be involved in this exciting project!
In the meantime, why not join us for Bible study each Wednesday at 9am at The General Store Cafe. We meet for discussion, study and prayer and enjoy coffee or breakfast too. The final Bible Study for 2017 will be 20 December, and will resume in February 2018.
Tamlyn Magee is just one of the local artists keen to explore opportunities offered by the proposed revitalisation of St Peters. You can see her performing with her harp in the YouTube clip below.
