Every Sunday we gather together for worship. It’s the most important thing we do as a congregation. In worship we gather in God’s presence to receive His love and grace through hearing His Word, and receiving the Sacraments. We then return our thanks in prayer and praise.
The worship life of St. Peter’s is one of our real strengths as a congregation. Having at least two services each week means that we are able to provide a style of worship for those with different tastes.
A traditional worship service using the liturgy of the Church.
Hymns are sung to the accompaniment of the organ.
Holy Communion is generally celebrated weekly.
An inter-generational family worship service that includes a children’s message.
Music comes from a variety of contemporary Christian music as well as some of the classic
hymns that are led by one of our bands.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. Fellowship over ice-cream is a highlight after the services in the summer months and soup in the winter months.
'CONNECT COMMUNITY' Worship Service
A relaxed style of worship with upbeat music and flexible seating, held in Peace Hall on the 1st Sunday of each month at 5.30pm. An evening meal follows at 6.30pm with time for fellowship. The evening meal is free of charge, but you may like to give a donation towards the meal.
Growing FAITH at home
We promote and utilise the Blueprint Ministries FAITH5 (Faith Acts In The Home) during our services, centred around our church-wide faith practice of the FAITH5: Share, Read, Talk, Pray and Bless. These services are more interactive and challenge all those attending to explore a certain topic dealing with strengthening our relationships as the family of God.
A service is held at the Loxton Community Hospital at 10:45am every second Thursday of each month.
And regular involvement of School Chapel at Loxton Lutheran School every second Friday at 2:30pm, during School terms.
A Worship Team meets for planning. It tries to ensure that worship is meaningful and helpful and, above all, that it keeps its focus on God himself. Behind the scenes many people are involved every Sunday in greeting, reading lessons, acting as servers at communion, making coffee or soup, cleaning, ushering, providing flowers, music, transport etc.
Contact the Ministry Centre if you are willing to help in any of these areas. In the end, every member has a role to play - encouraging everybody by your presence, praying for those who lead the worship and for the worshippers, and attempting to make everybody feel welcome
