Give As You Live Website
Members of our congragation & community can now raise money for the Church by visiting the Give As You Live Website (www.giveasyoulive.com) to make online purchases. The website is simple to use following a short regsitration process & is an excellent way to raise funds without even noticing it in the pocket.
A harsh reality of the present day is that without the generosity of our congregation, the Church simply would not be able to continue. Every year St Anne's Church along with all other Churches has to pay it's way & without some significant anonyous donations, we would not have acheieved this for some time. Austerity is affectig us all & it is a difficult time for many, but we ask that you consider what you are able to give to support our Church.
Please also consider the benefits of arranging a direct debit. Information regarding this can be obtained via this website using the 'Contact Form' or by making enquiries at Church.
The dates of our remaining Gardening day's this year can be seen on the home page of the website. Please come along to help keep our Church & it's surroundings beautiful. If you can spare anytime, all are very welcome to come & help out. A big thank you to everyone who has already attended & helped out this year.
Donations Of Unwanted Gifts
Thank you to all who have given & are still giving us donations to use as prizes, stock stalls, etc, at our various events. After the Strawberry Fair our stock has become depleted so, in the months leading up to the Christmas Fair, we are looking for the following; bottles (soft drinks, beer, spirits, shampoo, water, etc), chocolate, items for tombola prizes, clean soft toys, other good toys & anything else you think might be useful.
Thank you to all who have repaired a kneeler or kneelers; the pile needing repair appears to be going decreasing & the kneelers are looking very smart, hanging on the backs of chairs. Please help yourself to a kneeler from the pile in the alcove to the right of the organ if you'd like to join the repair crew!
Please could we ask that if a kneeler is used it is hung back up again & not left on a chair or lying on the floor.
