On the website you can now find recent sermons collated in one place under the tag sermons. Also, this week we start a regular slot called Spiritual Reflections which aims to look at questions of faith in a fresh, imaginative way. Contact Ashley or Ben if you can't find the content.
PRAYER AT ST ANNE'S: A Church is, at heart, a house of prayer, a place where we can encounter God at a new level of depth and delight. Do join us for prayer this month. Morning Prayer is Mon-Fri at 9:15am and Contemplative Prayer, a time of silent love and attention, is at 7pm on Tuesdays. Please note Contemplative Prayer is on a break for August. It will return Tuesday 6th September.
