Friends of St Anne's

Become a Friend of St Anne's

  • Do you live locally and care about your local church?
  • Does this place hold a special meaning for you?
  • Do you want to be part of its growth and development in your local community?

Like all churches, St Anne's depends for its upkeep on the generosity of the public. Our vision is to establish the Friends of St Anne's to bring together all those who love and value St Anne's and wish to support its life and work in the Bagshot community.

We invite you to respond to the inspiration of this place and to join a vibrant network of people who are interested and care about this special church and its work in Bagshot, by making a small financial contribution on a regular basis.

We need your help

Today, more than ever, St Anne's needs the support of Friends to help ensure that the place of the church in Bagshot is maintained and enhanced, now and long into the future. As a living community, we want to ensure that this and future generations will be inspired as so many have been before.

Membership of the Friends

The Friends of St Anne's will receive an occasional newsletter / ebulletin with news about St Anne's.

You will also be invited to the following social events:

  • the Springtime Duke's Dinner - a celebration of St Anne's establishment by the Duke of Connaught.
  • our Autumnal Pickle Night - a traditional celebration of the HMS Pickle, the ship that first brought the news of Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
Much more importantly, your financial support will help us to maintain the building and to develop the work of St Anne's to enhance its place within the local community. It will also give us the chance to fund projects outside the church's normal operating costs.

The more Friends we have, the greater our ability to make a difference.

What it means to be a Christian.

Christian life is lived in relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and in common with other Christians in the church seeking to deepen that relationship and to follow the way that Jesus taught.

For Christians God is understood and known as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

…Father… God is love, caring for creation and for every human being as God's beloved child.

…Son… God is as he has revealed himself to be in the historical person of Jesus Christ. Jesus' life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing and loving God, and to making sense of life, before and after death.

…and Holy Spirit… God is alive, loving and active today, inspiring faith, justice and truth, sustaining the life of the world, giving spiritual gifts to the church and bearing his spiritual fruit in the world - changed lives and a transformed society.

Friends

Friends are people who recognise the importance of ensuring that the village's Parish Church is able to continue serving the needs of future generations, but are not necessarily members of the church congregation.

FOSA seeks to encourage our Friends' support, but not to evangelize.
