The last five years have been a very exciting time for St. Anne’s. The church is now open on a daily basis and we have a rapidly growing “Junior Church”. In addition the church has been developed as an important local venue for concerts and community events and the building is there as a meeting place or resource for all. The first part of our ambitious development programme, ramped access to the church, is now complete. This will enable many more people to have easy access to the church.
We are now beginning Phase Two of our development which is a toilet/kitchen extension which will cost in the region of £350,000. This will provide good facilities for all who use the church. The Church Council has applied for Heritage Lottery Funding to help with this project and we already have over £100,000 towards the total needed from donations, legacies and existing funds.
The church community of St. Anne’s are very grateful to the many generous donors who have enabled us to complete the Ramped Access. We are now beginning a fund-raising campaign to enable Phase Two to be completed. There will be a series of events in the coming months and, if you are in a position to support our efforts, details of how to donate are provided below.
Thank you for your interest in St. Anne’s. We hope to see you at some of our future events.
With all good wishes from the whole church community of St. Anne’s.
