St. Anne's Hall
The Church Hall is a separate building behind the church and comprises a small kitchen, male and female/disabled toilets and a store for furniture when it is not in use. There is disabled access with an outdoor play area for children reached through a French window.
It can be hired by the hour and information is available from the Church Office 01250 874583
Several times a year on a Sunday we hold a café style service in our hall which is a more informal service based around Holy Communion but with activities and refreshments.
Christmas services are always busy and we have a Christingle Service at 6pm on Christmas Eve. During Advent a Posada - knitted nativity set - travels around local families with a knitted sheep for each child and returns to the church at the Christingle service. At 6pm on Good Friday we have an ecumenical service of reflection. Café service on the theme of Light
An ecumenical lunch club meets every two weeks in the hall and most days there are groups meeting in the hall for exercise and craft/relaxation. A Pasta Pamper prayer supper is held in the hall during the year when ladies get together with a glass of wine and supper and enjoy some craft work finishing with a time of prayer and reflection.
St Anne’s church recently took part in the local Snowdrop festival weekend. Vintage teas were served in the hall and the church was decorated with snowdrops and open as a Quiet Space. Prayer cards were available and a leaflet explaining the space created for quiet meditation and reflection was given to those who came into sit and reflect away from the busyness of the day outside. The weekend ‘s events closed with a Taize style service in the chancel around the theme of gardens watered with the stream of life.
