Following the advice from the Government regarding social gatherings during the present crisis, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have advised that all public acts of worship cease immediately (17/03/2020). Consequently there will be no public celebrations of the Holy Eucharist at St Annes Parish Church for the foreseeable future.




Despite the current situation, the worship life of the Church goes on in the background. Father David and Father Aiden will continue to say Morning and Evening Prayer each day. If you have any prayer requests please contact us:
