Please note that Sunday Worship has been adapted due to coronavirus:

You are welcome to attend the service in person (following the Coronavirus Guidelines), watch the livestream service online, listen by telephone, or watch the "Worship Highlights" available each Monday on our YouTube channel.

Please pre-register on Eventbrite if you plan to attend in person. You will still be asked at the door whether you have any symptoms of illness.

If you have not pre-registered, you will be required to register at the door when you arrive (more questions than if you pre-registered).

The worship service has been revised to accommodate these COVID-19 restrictions: The Sunday Worship service is one hour long. It includes two readings, a sermon, hymns (sung by cantors only), and Holy Eucharist (sharing the bread but not the common cup). We are not able to have social time or refreshments.

We welcome your assistance in offering this service. Please let us know if you can assist with our Welcome Team, as a reader or intercessor, as a server/acolyte, or overseeing the sound system.

Sunday worship service outline (pre-COVID):

Welcome! Sunday worship gathers our whole community
to give thanks and ask God to equip us to serve our local and extended community.

The worship service includes music, prayers, a sermon that connects sacred texts to concerns in our world today, and celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

The service concludes with an opportunity for the community to share special blessings, including birthdays, anniversaries and other good news.

Children's Program during the service. Refreshments immediately following the service. All are welcome.

75 minutes.

Every Wednesday - 10:30 a.m. - Holy Eucharist

(On Hold - COVID)

This weekday service offers a reflective pause in your day to remember and be grateful for God's presence in your life, and for personal and community prayers.
All are welcome.

Worship Service At The Community Dinner

(On Hold - COVID)

St. Anne's holds a worship service of communion and ministry of anointing for healing, towards the conclusion of the dinner,
