Nursing Home Visiting
We visit 6 Nursing Homes on the Sunshine Coast
The majority of the people in these Nursing Homes, if not all, have been part of a church family at some stage of their lives.
These visits are essential for their spiritual wellbeing and it is important for them to feel and know they are still a part of the family of God through Jesus, and always will be. Contact Rev. Tania Eichler. (07) 5443 2133.
Communion Services held once a month in Maroochydore are as follows;

These services are well attended and are enjoyed by the people at these facilities and by the volunteers who participate.
On Wednesday nights commencing at 5pm in the hall we aim to show the love of Christ by providing a three-course home cooked meal to people who are homeless, disadvantaged or lonely. We also provide clothing and toiletries when needed. A few minutes each week is spent sharing from God’s Word.

Weekly Prayer Meeting
Prayer is a very important part of our fellowship at St. Peters. Prayer meetings are held in the church each Tuesday morning from 9.00am to 10.00am. We also have a prayer diary where each parishioner is remembered in prayer once a month. A prayer chain for emergencies and a list inserted into each week’s pew sheet covers those needing immediate support and those requiring ongoing support. To put someone on the prayer chain or in the pew sheet lists it is essential to obtain that person’s permission, or that of a close relative.
The contact for placing a name on the prayer chain or in the pew sheet is Doris Crerar. Phone (07) 5443 2133.
Hospital Visitation and Care
If you have a passion for caring for others, then consider coming to a Pastoral Care Team Meeting to discover more about who we are, what we do, and how we do it!
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 11.00am – after Wednesday Worship.
We try to care for all of our parishioners, as well as reaching out to those in the wider community. Pastoral home and hospital visiting occur as required. Parishioners who are unable to attend our church services share Holy Communion at home with members of our friendly team. Using a variety of appropriate cards, we aim to reach out to others through our ‘Encouragement with Cards’ Ministry.
