About St. Anne's

We are a welcoming, all-age Anglican church seeking to worship God and serve our local community. We have a varied programme catering to all ages during the week and on Sunday mornings.

We have a strong focus on providing the best services for weddings, baptisms and funerals as well as a team of people who visit the sick and elderly in our community.

The links with the local Church of England school next door are very important to us and we work hard together to encourage children in the school to grow in their faith. If you would like to find out more about anything that you see here please do contact us or come along to one of our services, we’d love to get to know you!

Online Giving

As with all charities at this time St Anne’s is struggling with finances as some of our income stream is from services, weddings and baptisms as well as hire of the church hall. With our buildings being closed and services now online for the foreseeable future we are using our reserves to pay our ongoing bills as we continue to reach out and support our local community with food drops, prescription runs and pastoral care. If you are able to walk with us financially at this time then an easy way to give is by using this QR code which you can scan on your mobile phone or by visiting this website https://thyg.uk/CUR011466. Thank you for supporting us in this way.

Church Re-Opening

Due to a third lockdown we have taken the decision to suspend in-person worship and review this on 21st February 2021. Because of the ever changing local and national picture regarding the Covid 19 pandemic we will continue to reassess the services and groups we are able to run at this time, but we remain hopeful that as we move forward we will return to some of our more familiar patterns of worship. For up to date information continue to check back to this page or follow us on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/StAnnesChurchWorksop/ Pre-recorded services and live streaming daily thoughts for the day will be available on our Facebook feed @StAnnesChurchWorksop. Do take care and we will see you soon.

A Christmas Message

So, here we all are! After a year unlike any other, we face an Advent and Christmas unlike any other. It remains unclear what restrictions we’ll be living under this month but it’s safe to say that many of our usual traditions will have to be reimagined. I’ve heard many people say that Christmas “just won’t be the same” this year and doubt whether it will have its usual “magic”. It is likely that more of us will feel isolated as we may not be able to see the family and friends we normally would. At this time of year, Rev Dave and I would normally be gearing up to welcome many hundreds of you through the doors of our church building for various carol concerts and services; some of the most special times of our year. With these realities in view, we may be entering this month with feelings of loss, sadness and fear; particularly given the effects that this difficult year has had upon us. I’d like us, however, to have our eyes, ears and minds open to the good and positive things that may appear from this completely different Advent and Christmas 2020. Traditions are always at risk of losing their meaning if they are not in a process of renewal and I fear that some of our usual Christmas traditions have indeed lost some of their power through familiarity. At its heart, Christmas holds a deeply unexpected and challenging message: that God became one of us. When you picture the idea of God coming to earth, what comes to mind: royal processions, trumpets, thrones, robes - like a coronation ceremony or fire, judgement and anger against all that is wrong? Well it wasn’t like that at all; God became one of us. Flesh and bone, mind and spirit like you and me. God came in complete humility rather than power, total mercy rather than judgement, to serve rather than to be served. In other words: totally unexpected. Christmas and Advent, for many of us, have also become the busiest and most pressurised times of our years as we struggle to find the time for all the events and money for all the presents. This year will undoubtedly bring new pressures, but we may actually have more time to enjoy more fully the fewer things we’re able to do and to reflect on the season’s true meaning. If we fill the spaces created with an experience of God’s constant love and presence with us, maybe through saying a prayer, calling a friend, lighting a candle or reading some of the Bible passages suggested in this month’s magazine, our experience this year can turn from barren ground to spiritual abundance. We never expected that Christmas would be like this, but it may help us learn something about our God – who entered this world in a totally unexpected way. If we open our minds and hearts to this Advent and Christmas season, I fully and truly expect that God will meet with us in new, unexpected yet wonderful ways. Some of us may even discover that our hearts open to God’s indescribable love for the first time. May the love and peace of Christ be with you all. Rev Richard
