Worship

Sunday morning worship at 10:30 a.m.


What to expect:
  • Worship at St. Anne's is the traditional Anglican liturgy of the Holy Eucharist in modern English.
  • The greeter will welcome you as you come in, and give you a program.
  • You are welcome to find a seat where you feel comfortable.
  • The service includes scripture readings - readings come from the lectionary, a schedule of readings designed to explore the whole bible over a 3-year period. The lectionary is shared across many Christian traditions.
  • The service includes communion, and you are invited to come forward to receive the bread and wine, or to receive a blessing.
  • Following the service, we invite you to stay for refreshments. Refreshments are usually served in the Skey Room, located in the St. Anne's Parish Hall, which is adjacent to the church from the parking lot.
  • Note that the church is now fully wheelchair accessible. We have a wheelchair accessible washroom on the main floor, as well as washrooms on the lower level.
What to expect for Children:
  • We hold a weekly children's program during the school year.  On Sundays, we invite children to join the Children's Table (at the back of the church) for activities tied to the themes of the Sunday service. This way they are in earshot of the liturgy and learn to participate at their own speed. Children are also welcome to stay in the pews and to come forward for communion. Once a month, we hold Messy Sunday, a children's program. Messy Sunday takes place in the Music Room (lower level of the church) and children re-join the community in time to receive Communion. Messy Sunday is a new initiative building on our successful Messy Church - an after-school children's program held once a month on Wednesday, beginning at 5:00. Messy Church: Details here.
