Many people look for a church full of ‘people like us’. But we think one of the blessings of genuine church is being united with people we might have nothing in common with – apart from the only thing that matters: a shared faith in Jesus Christ.
At St Anne’s, there are likely to be a few people like you – but also lots of people older and wiser, or younger and more energetic. There will be people with very different life experiences to your own. Some of us will bless you by serving you; others will need you to serve us.
There might be all sorts of things you’d like to find in a church. A particular style of music, architecture, liturgy or vibe. We all have our preferences. But we’re convinced that whatever our preferences, the Bible’s unchanging message about Jesus Christ, freshly proclaimed, needs to be at the centre of our loving community.
So are you willing to try something different? Come and see why we love St Anne’s. Or get in touch with me if you want to talk things over.
Revd. Richard Bray, Rector
