 St Anne's Church is made up of an active group of people who love God and want to serve our Community. Our services are modern and informal and we love to get everyone involved.
All ages have a part to play at St Anne's Church and there are groups and activities for everyone, and because Church is not just about Sunday, there are lots of activities going on throughout the week. Why not join us and get involved?

Getting Married

logo wedding

 

 

Getting married is a celebration and public declaration of your love and commitment to each other.

If you choose to get married in church, there is an added dimension – the assurance that God cares about your relationship and that His resources and strength are available to help you.

Including God in your marriage doesn’t mean that you will avoid all the usual ups and downs, but you will know that you can look to God for help and guidance and that His love will sustain you.

dove3You will also have the support and encouragement of the Christian Church family.

Kath Talbot

I've known and been associated with St Anne's Church since I was a small child. I went to St Anne's Primary School and attended Sunday School here.
Although I spent quite a few years living in Stacksteads my attachment to this Church remained.
When I moved back to the area I rekindled the link to 'My Church.'
I've had the privilege to be able serve St Anne's
for several years as Churchwarden.
