According to the Anglican Church in North America’s Catechism, “the Church on earth gathers in local congregations to worship in Word and Sacrament, to serve God according to the Scriptures, and to proclaim the Gospel, under the leadership of those whom God appoints for this purpose.”
The life of the Church involves a continuous action of building up and sending forth. Through worship and education, Christians are built up and then sent out into the world as witnesses to Jesus Christ. In order for the life of the Church to be healthy, both building up and sending out must take place.
The aim of Adult Ministry at St. Peter’s is to build up disciples so that they can be effective witnesses in the world.
