Welcome

Refugee sponsorship, DONATE HERE!

Our Church and Mosque congregations are coming together in a fundraising contest to jointly sponsor a refugee family from Syria. Join St. Anne's and the Islamic Information & Da'wah Centre as we work together!

From the article in the Toronto Star:

Assisting Imam Ilyas Ally: “We thought it was a great opportunity to send a message to both our congregations and also to the wider public, that Muslims and Christians can be working together and really ought to be working together.” 

The Rev. Gary van der Meer: “I think competition is a healthy thing, in a good sense of friendship. We’re in the stage of two communities wanting to understand each other, and this’ll be a great opportunity for us to work together… We really want it to be about the neighbourhood connecting.” 


We are under construction!

St. Anne's is now a fully accessible building for our community. The wheelchair ramp and main floor barrier-free washroom have been completed. We have a few cosmetic finishing touches still to complete, but we are ready to welcome you. Please enter from the parking lot door as pictured below. St. Anne's is dedicated to Bringing the Community together for Good. 

Worship Times

We invite you to worship God with us. Our worship schedule continues unchanged during the construction project.

Every Sunday 10:30 a.m. – Holy Eucharist

A weekly service of Morning Prayer is held each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Come to the Ministry Centre at 276 Gladstone Ave. Everyone is welcome.

Special Services

Worship & Pastoral Care in the Community

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. 

Welcome

  • We invite you to worship with our fully inclusive neighbourhood-minded community. Come and be part of what we do 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 are striving to be -
     in our Sunday morning worship especially, but also through a full calendar of opportunities to learn, experience the arts, enjoy the world of nature as God's creation and gift committed to our care. We are committed to serving and caring for those in need in our community. This great building is where we bring our community together. Our ministry team is here for you and always ready to encourage you to discover the ways God is calling you. 
  • The Rev. Gary van der Meer, Pastor & Incumbent I'm really interested in the role our church can play in the health of the whole neighbourhood. I support the interlocking contributions of so many neighbourhood organizations, each of us doing our part in partnership and face-to-face friendship. If you like walking or biking, you might run into me - trying new coffees and new IPAs, and always ready for a good talk.What could we talk about? I like to talk about books and the ones you have enjoyed the most. We could talk about God too - or a good open-ended open-minded conversation about spirituality.We could talk about your interests. Here are a few of mine: I like to play in the kitchen - what ...

  • Shauna Cairns Gundy, Pastoral Assistant At St. Anne's, my focus is on pastoral care and visiting.   I am committed to affirming the ministry of seniors, and to involving them in our community.  In our midweek worship services, we encourage everyone to take part in readings, discussion and prayers.  We also include worship at the conclusion of the monthly Community Dinner.  I invite you to pull up a chair as we pray for each other and share communion.  Raising our children, my husband Michael and I have enjoyed many spontaneous conversations exploring  “faith and what it’s all about.”  I want to encourage the conversations that help you in your journey of discovery and faith. I love the strong sense of caring community at St ...

  • The Rev. Canon David Neelands, Honorary Assistant In my ministry, in general, I care a lot about getting a clear and attractive message out about the gospel, and I find that this gets renewed all the time.  I am amazed at how I find my experience to be one of proclamation and response. Most of my community involvements are through church -- I am a pretty churchy person.  My passions are books and music -- all kinds of books, especially fiction that deals with character in a humourous way.  My favourite writer at the moment is David Foster Wallace.  My favourite opera right now is Philip Glass's Satyagraha.I love the people and the energy of St. Anne's.  It is a welcoming, honest, and interesting group of ...

  • John-Luke Addison, Director of Music As Director of Music at St. Anne’s, I am able to share my passion with the community by guiding the musical culture of the church. I say ‘guide’ as I am merely the facilitator for all things music at St. Anne’s, as everyone contributes musically each Sunday, even by raising their voices during their favourite hymns. My goal is to nurture the musical gifts of the church community and produce the finest music possible to praise God. I would love to chat with you if you feel you would like to be involved with the music program, whether singing in the choir, playing an instrument, or anything else. The choir is not exclusively for those who can read ...
