What To Expect
From its inception, St. Anne’s has focused its Sunday worship services on the Eucharist. You are welcomed to attend either of our two Sunday services of Holy Eucharist held at 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. (unless otherwise noted). On Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m., you can celebrate a Celtic Eucharist service. Throughout the year special services are created based on the liturgical seasons and other celebrations. Regardless of the service, all are welcome at the table to receive communion.
Holy Communion at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday is a quiet contemplative service allowing you to be in the nearer presence of our God in prayer and to celebrate the Eucharist.
The Sunday 11:00 a.m. service includes humans, choir and sung liturgy. This service is live streamed to Facebook and YouTube channels, and the parish hall. During the service we use screens to assist in handsfree worship.
At this time fully vaccinated people can choose to wear a mask or go without a mask. We also have seating that gives you the choice to be socially distanced or sit closer together with others.

During Our Services
Our services follow The Book of Common Prayer. We sing from the 1982 Hymnal and the African-American hymnal, Lift Every Voice and Sing (LEVAS). Sermons are typically based upon the Revised Common Lectionary.
We have a very lively exchange of the Peace following the sermon when most parishioners leave their seats to greet other parishioners and visitors. This is an important way for us to connect to each other and feel our communion.
We continue to connect during “coffee hours”with each other in the Parish Hall following the Sunday services.
We are a casual, informal church and have no dress code, though you will see people wearing anything from suits to jeans. We invite everyone to wear what makes them feel comfortable.
