Welcome to Saint Anne’s Church

Welcome to St. Anne’s

Many of you will already feel caught up with preparations for Christmas, planning parties, buying presents, getting the tree and so on. For others, the prospect of Christmas means a period of loneliness even worse than the rest of the year. As with Easter, the Church provides a penitential season before Christmas, Advent, which encourages us to reflect, quietly, on our failings and what we are about and what is not right and good in our lives as we await that day when Christ will come again. Christmas too, for many, is a time for recalling what is important in our lives, family, friendships, community and also what is not, those things which can often clutter up our time but which are neither healthy nor enriching.

I hope you that you may find time this Christmas to join us at St. Anne’s and reflect with us, as we celebrate the birth of the one who came to bring us life and life to the full on what is good in your life and what is not. Perhaps too, as you approach those New Year’s resolutions, to resolve to strengthen those ties of family, friendship and community, to reach out to that neighbour on their own or in need, to rejoice in the joy in your life and to be one who brings joy into the lives of others.

However you celebrate Christmas, I pray that it may be for you a time of happiness, reflection and joy and that it leads you into a blessed and fruitful 2019.

The Church at St. Anne’s wishes you a very happy and holy Christmas!

Everyone is welcome at St. Anne’s from the deeply faithful to the questioning and the curious.  Wherever you fall, I hope that you will find a safe place of prayer and friendship where you may encounter something of the God who loves us all.

Fr. Andrew+
