  • We invite you to worship with our inclusive and fully accessible neighbourhood-minded community. Be part of what we are doing 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 strive to be -
     in Sunday morning worship especially, but also through a full calendar of opportunities to learn, experience the arts, and engage 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 meet to 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 community. I want to support the interlocking contributions of so many neighbourhood organizations, each of us doing our part in partnership and face-to-face friendship. Meet me at one of our great local coffee spots, and let's talk!A bit about me: I always have books on the go, and I'd love to hear what you're reading. I enjoy reading theology, and I also keep up with some young adult fiction (that's the section of the bookstore where you will find me browsing). I enjoy athletics: running, rockclimbing, yoga, canoeing and kayaking. I'm a cyclist - everyday and ...

  • The Rev. Judith Alltree, Honorary Assistant The Rev. Judith Alltree is fond of using the phrase “the ministry of small gestures” to describe her work. “That really sums up, in one sentence, what we do,” says Alltree over the course of an interview at the Mission’s Hamilton headquarters. “We listen. I go onboard now with little bags of chocolates for the crew. It’s a little gesture, a small gesture, but it just says to the crew, ‘We’re happy to see you, we’re glad you’re safe. What do you need, how can we help you?’ ”These small gestures—a bag of chocolates, a kind word, the lending of an ear—can go a long way in accumulating the trust of a ship ...

  • 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 ...
