Children

  • Worship services: a ‘children’s address’ is part of most regular 9am worship services.
  • Sunday school is held on most Sundays during the school terms. Children between 2 and 12 years of age are warmly welcomed to come along, whether regulars or visitors to St Peters.
  • Class groups from St Peters Junior School are invited each term to attend a service with their families. The children participate in the service by reading lessons, singing and leading us in prayers. The Junior School chaplain leads and facilitates these services, in collaboration with the congregation.

Music

Music is much loved at St Peters and is an integral part of our congregational life and its ministry outreach. The SPLC chapel houses a 3 manual pipe organ, as well as a grand piano. These are used to accompany the 9am worship service, staffed by a voluntary team of organists and pianists. Currently we use four sung liturgies, on a rotational basis. While the congregational music tends towards the traditional (and focuses on what works best with organ or piano accompaniment), it is nonetheless wide ranging and includes the best contemporary hymns and songs.

Choir

Rehearsals: Thursday evenings 7.30pm, Ministry Centre, Chapel Road (off Lambert Road), Indooroopilly campus.

St Peters choir is a non-auditioned SATB choir and is warmly welcoming of new members of all ages and stages. The choir’s repertoire is diverse, ranging from Bach Cantatas to Gospel. They sing regularly at worship services throughout the year, and on various special occasions (e.g. Christmas, Easter, Reformation Day).  St Peters employs a professional choir director to lead the choir as part of the music ministry of our church community.

From time to time, choral bursaries are available to auditioned singers wishing to develop their singing in the context of Christian worship. For more information about joining the choir and/or the choral bursary program, please contact us via the church office, church.office@stpeters.qld.edu.au and we will be pleased to get in touch with you.

Shedmen

Meetings: 6.30pm, third Tuesday of the month, various venues.

The men of St John’s church (Corinda), St Peters (Indooroopilly) and Good News (Middle Park) meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 6.30pm on a rotational basis. The meeting is informal. The usual format is to assemble and enjoy a drink and chat while the BBQ is prepared.  After the meal the “guest speaker” leads a discussion on their particular experience or area of interest or expertise. 

There is an open invitation for men of the congregation to attend.
