About


THIS IS WHO WE ARE!

St. Anne's is a lively Anglican congregation in the west end of downtown Toronto. Our church building is a national historic site, a Byzantine revival church inspired by the architecture of the Hagia Sophia, and the home of the only known religious paintings by Canada's iconic Group of Seven.

We are an inclusive and fully accessible neighbourhood-minded community. All people are welcome to
worship God with us.

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 and through a full calendar of opportunities to learn, experience the arts, and engage the world of nature. We care about justice. We are committed to serving and caring for those in need.

Our ministry team is here for you
and always ready to encourage you.

We invite you to be part of
what we are doing at St. Anne's:

Bringing the Community together for Good.

I'm New!

All are welcome at St. Anne's! You can join us for worship on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. either in-person or by watching online on our YouTube page.

You can also join us on Thursdays for morning prayer at 9:30 a.m., or spend some quiet between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. We also celebrate Eucharist on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.

During the week, the parking lot is leased to the chocolate factory across the street. If you are visiting on weekdays, please park in the four marked church spots nearest the wheelchair ramp and side entrance to the church.

If you are visiting for a funeral, please note the signage and directions for parking.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate requests for extended parking for local neighbourhood residents.
