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.

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. With the darker, colder nights now they would appreciate gifts of blankets & sleeping bags in addition to food to assist Bristol's homeless & rough sleepers.

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 will be greatly appreciated.

We are still much in need of extra help for cleaning the Orchard Rooms.  This is done on a rota basis so that the rooms are kept presentable for church and other users. We are only asking for a couple of hours every month, so if you feel you can help, please speak to Linda Summers, Bob Kilmaster, or a warden to find out more, or offer help.
