Welcome to St Anne's Church, Royton

Saint Anne (also known as Ann or Anna, from Hebrew Hannah חַנָּה, meaning "favor" or "grace") of David's house and line, was the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus Christ.


You're invited to explore our website & we hope to see you soon at St Anne's Church. We have a warm & welcoming congregation with a beautiful building in which to Worship God.

School Admissions

The purpose of this statement is to clarify that:

The Diocese of Manchester, the Church of England nationally, and the Schools Adjudicator, have agreed a direction of travel, wherebychurch attendance after 1st September 2020 will not be counted towards school admissions for as long as numbers attending church services are limited.  This is the current situation: Anglican Churches are not operating at full capacity because they are prioritising the safety of those attending (for example by physical distancing).  This reduces the number of people who can be safely accommodated in churches, during the global pandemic.

Not all Admissions Policies of schools and academies currently correspond to the above statement.  The admission authorities of many Church of England schools and academies published their policies before this direction of travel was agreed.  Some policies will need to be amended and consulted upon.  However, the paragraph above summarises the current thinking and direction of travel of the Diocese of Manchester, and the schools and academies within it.

We encourage you as parents, where possible, given the necessary limitations on numbers attending public worship, to maintain your usual patterns of church attendance, and to be aware that records of attendance are currently not being kept by Church of England Parishes.
