Hike, Bike & Canoe with St. Anne's - Here's the Plan!

Getting out in the Great Outdoors is one of the ways St. Anne's celebrates God's blessing of the earth. 

We hike in the spring and the fall, often on the Bruce Trail, as a day excursion. We enjoy the exertion, the beauty, and the conversations that happen as we walk. We enjoy meeting the people who join us, some from the congregation, plus friends and future friends. 


Our hikes always include time to for rest and refreshment at the end!




In addition to hiking, please join us for the following events:

Saturday, May 12: Ride for the Rouge.
We have a group participating in the charitable bike ride though the wonderful Rouge Park. Please contact us by email to participate with our group. Learn more about Ride for the Rouge.

Sunday, May 27: Bike the Waterfront.
Bring your bicycle to church on Sunday, May 27. We will gather our bikes in the parking lot for a blessing, and then leave St. Anne's together for a leisurely ride on the Waterfront Trail. Bring some lunch to eat before we depart at 12:30 p.m.

Sunday, June 10: Canoe the Humber
As an addition to our Paddling Together art events last year, we added a real canoe day, and it was so wonderful we're doing it again. After church, we'll drive together to Old Mill subway station to rent canoes for a ride on the Humber River. The wildlife is amazing, right in the city. Approximate cost per person, $25.00. Learn more about canoeing on the Humber.

Saturday, June 23: Pride & Remembrance Run
We join the team Proud Anglicans every year to celebrate that St. Anne's is an LGBTQ+ Affirming Church! Run 5K or walk 3K. This year's run supports: Transition-Related Surgery Compassionate Fund at Women's College Hospital, Canadian Gay & Lesbian Archives Digital Hub Project, and other charities. And join us to walk with the Proud Anglicans in the Pride Parade on Sunday, June 24. Learn more about the Pride Run.

And coming this Fall:
  • Fall Excursion to the Wye Marsh for the Bird Migration. This will be a full-day excursion on a Saturday in late September or early October. Watch our events page!
