Regular Services

Here at St. Anne's we have a balanced mixture of services that will suit all tastes at some time during the month. Worship is coordinated by the Vicar, assisted by our Curate and a Self Supporting Minister.

For feast days and other important village events, and for variety we also schedule a number of special services.

Music is arranged by our Organist. St Anne's has a particularly fine organ and a dedicated choir.

We hope you will find our services meaningful and enjoyable.
We especially welcome children who are all warmly invited to our Junior Church, which meets every Sunday at 10am (except the 1st in the month when we're all together). There are various toy boxes waiting to be explored in the Church Centre and coluring material at tyhe back of the church.
Please join us in the Church Centre for coffee and squash after the 10am services.
A collection is taken during the Offertory hymn at the 10am Sunday service. At other services a collection bag is placed at the back of church for your donations. We encourage UK taxpayers to use the yellow Gift Aid envelopes. Please complete, sign and put in the collection bag.


8 am services.

Holy Communion

This service has a regular congregation who find it a valuable and a practical way to start a Sunday. The service does not include hymns and generally lasts around 40 minutes. On the first Sunday in each month the service uses the words laid down in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, but on other Sundays a more modern setting retaining a lot of the beauty of the traditional language is used.

The service is followed by coffee in the Church Centre.

10 am services.

Our 10am services include hymns and are followed by a sociable tea or coffee in the Church Centre afterwards.

Holy Communion

All confirmed members of the Church of England are welcome to take communion as are those who regularly take communion in their own churches. If you do not wish to receive communion but prefer to receive a prayer of blessing just carry the service book with you to the altar rail to indicate that you do not wish to receive the bread and wine - or remain in your seat. The service lasts about 1hr 10 mins.

Junior Church

Junior Church is held in conjunction with the 10am Communion and Morning Prayer services except during school holidays. Children start in the main service, either sitting with their parents or with other children at the front, and more to the Church Centre just after the start of the service, returning just before the end.
