Vicar - Father Jules Mambu
St. Anne’s is not just a church building, lovely though it is, we are a worshipping community that meet together and pray regularly for the people of this parish and the wider world; whilst maintaining a high church ethos within our worship so admired by our church founder and visionary Joseph Sidebotham click here.
If you are in need of spiritual advice, have questions in general, or want to offer any feedback, feel free to contact Father Jules click here.
Do come and join us at our regular weekly worship on Sundays at 11:15am in the form of a family friendly Sung Holy Communion service followed by tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat afterwards. You will recieve a warm welcome, the people are warm and friendly, and the heating system works too!
We also meet during the week on Wednesdays at 11:30am for a short said Holy Communion service in the Lady Chapel. This is a great way to get to know each other in a smaller and more relaxed environment, whilst also being a perfect opportunity to receive the Eucharist when you happen to be working the unavoidable weekend shift.
We are also blessed with our own youth organisations, Scouts and Brownies which meet downstairs at Church and regularly attend church parade. In addition our parish is also served by St Anne's Primary School in which the church maintains close links.
We are also proud to own a fully restored peel of 6 bells (15-0-12 tenor) within our bell tower. Any experienced bell ringing team are very welcome to play them, especially for weddings or at other times by prior arrangement.
This is our newly designed website launched in April 2019, which is continually being updated on a regular basis! Please keep visiting and treat this platform as your go to place for the latest live news from across our parish.
