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 below and on the left. Weekly newsletter items will also be posted below to give an overall feel of what is happening at our church.

Items for the Julian Trust can 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. Your donations will be greatly appreciated in helping the charity to assist Bristol's homeless & rough sleepers.

Cake 'n Shake is a new toddler group with a difference. It is not replacing KRASH Club but in this group the priority will be on the parents - although the children, of course, will be well looked after and have a great time as well. There will be healthy snacks to enjoy and a treat of some delicious cake for the adults who will also hear a little about an important aspect of parenting - based on the excellent book written by Madeleine Stanimeros. The group will meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month, at 10.30am in the Orchard Rooms. Help will be needed in the form of caterers and assisting in setting up and clearing away - as well as chatting informally to the children and adults. If you can spare a couple of hours each month please see Jo as soon as possible.
