Welcome to St. Peter's -- Carlton. We are a warm Anglican Church in the heart of downtown Toronto, at the corner of Carlton and Bleecker, just east of Sherbourne. St. Peter's is a place of refreshment, welcoming people who seek spiritual transformation since 1863.
You are invited to experience the love of God and neighbour, to grow spiritually, and to join in works of service to others. There are educational experiences for children, young people, and adults. Our building is a place of beauty and peace. Our people are diverse, and we are an inclusive community of believers. You are free to share in our community and to ask questions about anything.
"Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine."
St. Peter's welcomes people of all races, creeds, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation and gender identity.
We are an inclusive Christian community welcoming people from different paths--learning together, caring for each other, and reaching out to our neighbours, in the service and love of God.
