Bringing the Community together for Good


Worship Times

10:30 a.m. - Holy Eucharist - Every Sunday
Weekly worship gathers our whole community, in all its diversity of backgrounds, interests and concerns, to give thanks to God and to ask God to equip us to serve our community and our world. The worship service includes music, prayers, a sermon that connects sacred texts to concerns in our world today, the bread and wine of the eucharist, and time to be together and support each other in the journey of life. 75 minutes. 

10:30 a.m. - Holy Eucharist - First Wednesday of the Month 
The monthly weekday eucharist offers a reflective pause in your day to remember and be grateful for God's presence in your life, and for personal and community prayers. Located in the Church. 45 minutes. Note that this same worship service is held all other Wednesdays at St. Anne's Place (661 Dufferin Street) and visitors are welcome to attend.

Pastoral Outreach:
We hold weekday worship services in several care facilities and residences. Also plan to be with us for the monthly Community Dinner, which concludes with a brief worship service. 
  • St. Anne's Place, 661 Dufferin - Every Wednesday 10:30 a.m. (except the first Wednesday of the month in the church)

  • We invite you to worship with our inclusive and fully accessible neighbourhood-minded community. Be part of what we are doing at St. Anne's: Bringing the Community together for Good. We believe God wants a church that cares unselfishly for the good of all. That's the church we strive to be -
     in Sunday morning worship and through a full calendar of opportunities to learn, experience the arts, and engage the world of nature. We are committed to serving and caring for those in need in our community. This great building is where we meet to engage our neighbourhood and bring our community together. Our ministry team is here for you and always ready to encourage you as you discover the ways God is calling you. 
  • The Rev. Canon Gary van der Meer, Pastor & Incumbent I'm really interested in the role our church can play in the health of the whole community. I want to support the interlocking contributions of so many neighbourhood organizations, each of us doing our part in partnership and face-to-face friendship. Meet me at one of our great local coffee spots, and let's talk!A bit about me: I always have books on the go, and I'd love to hear what you're reading. I enjoy reading theology, and I also keep up with some young adult fiction (that's the section of the bookstore where you will find me browsing). I enjoy athletics: running, rockclimbing, yoga, canoeing and kayaking. I'm a cyclist - everyday and ...

  • The Rev. Judith Alltree, Honorary Assistant The Rev. Judith Alltree is fond of using the phrase “the ministry of small gestures” to describe her work. “That really sums up, in one sentence, what we do,” says Alltree over the course of an interview at the Mission’s Hamilton headquarters. “We listen. I go onboard now with little bags of chocolates for the crew. It’s a little gesture, a small gesture, but it just says to the crew, ‘We’re happy to see you, we’re glad you’re safe. What do you need, how can we help you?’ ”These small gestures—a bag of chocolates, a kind word, the lending of an ear—can go a long way in accumulating the trust of a ship ...
