The Dufferin Grove Farmers' Market can not currently operate in Dufferin Grove Park so they have set up an online store and are taking orders for delivery and contactless pick up at St. Anne's!
 
 
Order online from weekly featured market vendors by Tuesday evening 11:59 p.m. Choose your pick up time (or have your items delivered).
 
Come to the church parking lot, to pick up your orders at your scheduled pick up time. The parking lot is located at 270 Gladstone Avenue, on the south side of the church.
 
If you have not supported the Dufferin Grove Market in the past, this is a great time to start. Support our local farmers and small businesses!

    Note: See below: This is what it will look like when we are able to be back together in real life: 

    ‘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. We meet once a month. 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 take turns bringing food for a potluck supper, and sometimes we also cook together. Whether we bake bread or make soup, you'll enjoy cooking with us. Let us know if you can join us so there's enough food for everyone.

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

    MESSY CHURCH FORMAT:
    • 5:00-5:30 arrival
    • 6:00 supper
    • 7:15 concluding prayer

    **COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL. DINNER IS TAKEOUT ONLY**  Please note that we will not have a sit down meal. We are providing takeout containers with a simplified menu. Extra safety protocols are in place for volunteers. 

    ======

    Please join us for our monthly Community Dinner. Come to eat, or come and help us prepare and serve the meal. We serve about 80 people a takeaway meal including meat, vegetables and cold salads in the summer.  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. 

    We especially welcome helpers for preparation of items beforehand. Although we are working with a limited staff during COVID, we welcome new people visiting the Community Dinner from the community each time. We are happy to train you and grateful for your assistance and support. 

    HELP US PUT ON OUR COMMUNITY DINNER:

    12:15 p.m. Cutting up Vegetables (the first shift)
    3:30 p.m. Cooking (the second shift)
    5:15 p.m. takeout meals are available 
    6:30 p.m. Worship service (not available currently) 
    6:45 p.m. Clean up (until 7:45) 

    Due to COVID restrictions, please line up with social distancing spacing on the walkway between the Parish Hall (651 Dufferin) and the LOFT apartment buildings. 

    • Form a line to the east into the parking lot. Food selections will be indicated on poster on the side door, place your order with the person attending the side door and the food will be brought up to you in a bag to take away or eat outside. Please be patient.

    We apologize in advance for delays in orders as the size of our volunteer group is limited by coronavirus protocol.
