Institution of our new Rector

On Sunday 3 November 2013 the Revd Jacqueline Williams was instituted as the new Rector of St Peter's Parish, Auckland Park by the Rt Revd Steve Moreo, Bishop of Johannesburg. Friends and family of our new rector, congregants of St Peter's, other diocesan members and members of the community gathered to witness and celebrate the happy occasion.

After the beautiful ceremony, which was interspersed with verses of the hymn 'We love the place, O God, Wherein thine honour dwells' the congregation gathered for an abundant tea catered for by the Townsend family.
We warmly welcome Jacque to our church family and look forward to many fulfilling years together.

Update 2013

Our previous Rector  Revd. Dr. Vicentia Kgabe left St. Peters Church for Weltevreden Park end of January 2013. We wish her a fruitful Ministry.

Our interim Priest Revd. Trevor Slade was with us until the end of October 2013.
We appreciated and enjoyed your stay with us.
