History

St Anne's Church is about 130 years old, built in the hey-day of Victorian church building to a neo-gothic style. Bagshot had separated from Windlesham village to become its own ecclesiastical parish in 1874 and the Church was built ten years later, largely with the patronage of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, who lived near-by in Bagshot Park. It was consecrated in April 1884.

The attractive building is red brick with stone detail under a slate roof. There is a bell tower with a peal of 8 bells. It is grade II listed and situated in a conservation area.

A new Church Centre was built behind the church in 2005/6 and formally opened by the Bishop of Guildford in June 2006.

It provides meeting space, facilities for the Sunday School, toilets, kitchen and office.

The building has been designed to reflect the style of the church construction and its facilities are fully accessible. It is joined to the main church by a glazed lobby.

No one knows why our church has St Anne as its Patron Saint. The village had a chapel dedicated to St Anne before the present church was built, and it is assumed that the name was carried over to the new building on its new site. In addition to the main altar, there is a second altar forming what is known as the 'Stuart Chapel' in memory of an early vicar of the parish.

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.
