"Messy Sunday" Children! - September 23, 10:30 a.m.

posted 29 Jun 2017, 11:29 by Gary van der Meer   [ updated 21 Jun 2018, 11:25 ]


Introducing a new monthly children's program on the Third Sunday of every month. 

We invite children to join us in the music room at 10:30 a.m. 

We call it Messy Sunday because it's the same idea as our wonderful weekday Messy Church: games, music, stories, food. 

It's a great opportunity to learn what the Sunday liturgy is about, since that's where we are the other Sundays of the month. We have an hour before we receive communion, and we make the most of it!

St. Anne's offers a monthly tour at the conclusion of the worship service on the First Sunday of the month. The tour focuses on the Byzantine Revival architecture, Group of Seven paintings, and some of the interesting characters whose legacy continues to echo in the life of our community. This church is a national historic site, and our tour brings people from all over Canada and further afield, and we would be pleased to have you join them.

The tour is approximately 45 minutes in duration, and you are welcome to take pictures. Our tour leaders are trained and knowledgeable, and enjoy answering questions. We are delighted to introduce you to Robin, Roy and Lynn (Roy at left). 

There is no charge for the tour - Gifts to the Restoration Fund are gratefully received.
Everyone is welcome to attend the worship service as well as the tour. If you are not able to attend the service, please come into the church and find a place to sit until the liturgy concludes.

Upcoming Tour Dates:

Coffee and cookies afterwards for those who want to linger. A great option if you were busy on the weekend, or to add a time to connect with God in the middle of the week. 

Everyone is welcome, so you can drop in! You do not have to be Anglican to participate in the Eucharist.



Please join us in the church, 270 Gladstone Ave. The church is accessible, with a wheelchair ramp and barrier free washroom.

  • August 1
  • September 5
  • October 3

* If you would like an informal tour of the church on a weekday, why not drop in. We would be pleased to show you around after the liturgy concludes.

‘Messy Church’ is our way for families to be part of our church community in a relaxed inclusive setting built around fun, creativity, hospitality, and celebration. Each session includes time to run around and play, a story, a craft – and food. As our children say, "It's Church - but we can be messy."

Plan to join us in the Ministry Centre, 276 Gladstone Ave around 5:00. We start with playing. We introduce our theme and a special activity. We will bake bread and make soup together. Let us know if you can join us so we bake enough bread!

You do not have to be a member of this church or any church to participate. Everyone is welcome.

And introducing our new Sunday version of Messy Church: "Messy Sunday". Please join us on the third Sunday of each month.

    Please join us for our monthly Community Dinner.  Come to eat, or come and help us prepare and serve the meal. We serve over 100 people the kind of Sunday dinner that we would like to have in our own homes. Christianity is about service, and this activity is one of the more pleasant ways to render it to those who need a little help from us. Do consider joining in through your presence, food, or cash donation.

    HELP US PUT ON OUR COMMUNITY DINNER:

    • 2:30 p.m. Food preparation begins
    • 5:15 p.m. Dinner is served
    • 6:30 p.m. Worship service
    • 6:45 p.m. Clean up (until 7:45)
    Everything happens on the lower floor of the Parish Hall. Please enter the hall through the glass doors on the north side of building, on the walkway between the Parish Hall (651 Dufferin Street) and St. Anne's Place (661 Dufferin Street).
