Whether you are just starting to explore matters of faith or spirituality, or a mature Christian looking to go deeper, there is something at St Anne's for you. If courses aren't your thing, we also offer Spiritual Direction, meditation and Mentoring. In 2018 we will be beginning another Step Up year of intentional discipleship together with our neighbouring parish. We currently have a small group exploring 'Hearing God's Voice' and 2 Lent groups running from 5th March - 9th April (Tuesday evening and Monday mornings)

FOSA organise coffee mornings twice a year at Richmond Town Hall. Other coffee mornings take place on an occasional basis.

We hold regular community events including 'Staycations' - an opportunity to socialise, visit places and take part in a range of activities. 2017 Summer Staycation included museum visits, fish and chips, daily lunch together, dominoes, candle making, hand massage, games and much more. In February 2018 we had a coffee and film morning at the local cinema. Struggling to get out? No problem - we can organise lifts for those who need help with transport.

Audio-Visual Facilities

We are a Fairtrade church as part of our commitment to the Anglican marks of mission - to challenging the unjust structures of society. Amongst other things this means stocking our serving area with fair-trade tea and coffee and using fairly traded products at church events. If you find yourself at St Anne's church you are welcome to make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and to leave a donation ( if you wish!) in the wall box.

Whether you've not been to church for a while - or never been at all - you are very welcome at St Anne's. We recognise that stepping over the threshold of any new building can be challenging and we will do our best to support and welcome you - whichever day you come and whether it is to worship or for some other reason. If you need anything or if you would like to give us feedback on your experience, please do get in touch.
