Thinking of Coming to St Anne’s this Sunday?
Due to the Coronavirus public worship at St Anne’s has been suspended, though the church remains open when possible for private prayer.
When we can resume worship this is what you can expect on a usual Sunday:
Situated on Dean St, just off Shaftesbury Avenue, St Anne’s has step-free access throughout the church. You will be greeted with a smile and be given the order of service which is printed in one easy to follow booklet.
There is a table reserved for children and their parents with some books and activity sheets for children to enjoy. We do try and involve younger members in the service in different ways. There are baby changing facilities too.
Our service begins promptly at 11am and we normally precede it with about ten minutes of quiet as we prepare to worship. We do encourage everyone to be here for the start of the service at 11, but try not to make you feel bad if you don’t manage that. We’ll just be pleased to see you!
As well as times of peace and quiet before and during worship we value singing with gusto, thoughtful preaching and being in the company of people who take God and their neighbour more seriously than they may take themselves.
Our service is a Eucharist ( Holy Communion / Mass) in which we gather round the altar to receive Christ in bread and wine, or to receive a prayer of blessing. Anyone who would usually receive communion in their home church, or feels moved to receive here is welcome to do so.
After the service most people stay for refreshments and (usually) on the second Sunday in the month some of us go out for lunch together locally. All are welcome to share in these.
We’d love to welcome you to St Anne’s – a church that welcomes anyone who feels in any way ‘at home’ in Soho.
