St. Peter’s parishioners provide Christmas gifts for local children through the auspices of Gifts of Love, a local community program which manages the food bank and provides help to needy citizens.
St. Peter the Fisherman has been both life-giving and given life by reaching out into the greater New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater areas. Our identity has been deeply formed by the desire to share the bounties that God has so graciously given to us. Through the following ministries, we continue reaching out to our city and our neighbors:
The program's goal is to connect caring adults with elementary students at Chisholm School to provide a friendly helping hand on a one-on-one basis. Not only providing encouragement but help with their studies. This lets them know someone personally cares about them, their education, and their future.
St. Peter’s the students at Chisholm School by collecting new sneakers for the students and school supplies prior to and during the school year. In addition, we provide funds and other items for their "Chissy Bucks" store.
Mission: To provide individuals and families nourishing food in a safe, welcoming, environment.
St. Peter’s a founding member of a consortium of 4 churches that serve the hungry in New Smyrna Beach. All are welcome, those who desire fellowship and company during a meal. The program is support though volunteers preparing the meals and many corporate sponsors through their donations.
In the fall St. Peter’s celebrates the joy of animals on St. Francis Day with a Pet Blessing and collects pet supplies for the Edgewater Animal Shelter. The shelter needs help year around so please visit their website to see what contributions you might make.

Habitat is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. We build with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds. St. Peter’s parishioners volunteer in building projects, support individual houses and provide free housing for university students from various northern colleges while in Florida working on Habitat houses during their spring breaks.
Cards of encouragement and prayers are sent monthly to those serving our country, names are submitted by our parishioners and signed by our Rector. Twice per year those active duty personnel are given $25 gift cards or care package. We hold a Remembrance Day celebration in November for our veterans.
