News & Events

St Anne's enjoys working hard and playing hard together as a church family. Therefore there are regular events for the family to get involved in which are listed on the left. However, the regular weekly newsletter items will be posted below to give an overall feel of what is happening at our church.

Open the Book  - A small group of volunteers from local churches go into primary schools to take a weekly assembly called 'Open the Book'. The material is all supplied and well received. The team for Hanham Abbots School need one or two more helpers to assist with a Thursday morning assembly. If you can help or to find out more please speak with Sue Dean on 9323633.

CARE TEAM - We need you! The Care Team is in urgent need of additional volunteers. Currently there are only 12 names on the team list, a number of whom work so they are not available during the day. Can you help for an hour or so a month? The Care Team support members of the church who would appreciate a little extra help - driving to hospital appointments, visiting housebound people, contacting those recently bereaved. This is an important part of our ministry to and for each other so please contact Doreen or Becky for more information. Thank you.

Items for the Julian Trust to be placed in the basket at the back of church please. specifically requested are: UHT milk, tinned tomatoes, tinned tuna, squash, tinned custard, margarine and washing powder. Please note that clothes are not required at this time.

For those of the congregation who attend the Sunday 9.00 am service you are asked to note that on the 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month this will be a reflective Morning Prayer service rather than the usual Communion. Your continued support to the service and to our lay ministers who will generally be leading the reflective services will be greatly appreciated.
