Who We Are
The congregation of St Peter's is a close-knit and friendly community, made up of both young and old. We enjoy regular worship and fellowship. We are a member of the Lutheran Church of Australia and acknowledge the Holy Bible to be the true Word of God.
We are involved in various outreach programmes and mission support. We enjoy regular fellowship and spiritual growth activities such as Bible Studies, Choir, Band, Prayer Group, Morning Praise Worship, Breakfast Meetings and other fun events such as quiz nights and craft mornings, dinners and a Church concert, usually held every two years.
On Easter Sunday we hold a dawn music service in the observatory on the top of Mt Wellington, where the sun rises during the Service.
Prayer Breakfast is held each month at the School, and in December we meet at the Springs on Mt Wellington.
What We Believe
Lutherans believe in one true God
Lutherans share the belief of all other Christians that the one true God has made himself known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Lutherans believe that God loves all people.
Lutherans believe that God loves every human being, even though none of us deserve his love.
Lutherans believe in Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is God's Son. Because he loves the world, God sent his Son Jesus to make things right between God and us. Jesus took the blame for the sins of all people. Jesus died for everybody. Jesus also broke the power of death by becoming alive again.
Lutherans believe God's forgiveness is a free gift
Because of Jesus, God has forgiven all sins of all people. God offers his forgiveness to everyone as a free gift. We don't have to earn God's forgiveness or pay for it. It is ours when we believe in Jesus as our Saviour. God offers us his forgiveness in the good news about Jesus, and in baptism and holy communion.
Lutherans believe what the Bible says
The Bible is the word of God. Lutherans accept the Bible as the authority that decides what they are to believe and how they should live. Lutherans believe that the good news about Jesus is the key to the whole Bible.
