Welcome

  • We invite you to worship with our inclusive and fully accessible 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 committed to our care. We are committed to serving and caring for those in need in our community. This great building is where we engage our neighbourhood and 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. Meet me for an Americano at one of our great local coffee spots, and let's talk.Do you like to read? I always have books on the go, and I'd love to hear what you're reading. My favourite authors these days: Miroslav Volf, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, René Girard, and Walter Brueggemann. I especially enjoy young adult fiction, and that's the section of the bookstore where you will find me browsing. My next vacation novel is ...

  • 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 ...
