Life Events

'In God we live and move and have our being.'


Those are the words of the apostle Paul in the book of the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 17:28). That is why there is no place or moment in life that is disconnected or islolated from God. 


St Anne's  is a Christian community embedded in this village and its surrounding communities that seeks to bring the light. love and comfort of Christ into the lives of all we come into contact with, whether that is in the context of birth or death or anything in-between.

Baptisms (or Christenings) are a wonderful celebration of new life. In the case of infant or children's baptism we rejoice with our family members and friends in the fact that God has given us new life in the form of this beautiful baby/child. When we celebrate adult baptisms we celebrate in a new beginning - a conscious awareness that life's journey from here on will be open to God's guidance, wisdom and transforming power.


Wherever you are in your journey of faith - we love to welcome you to St Anne's and celebrate this in the context of baptism. Here you will find some information that will guide you through this process.


St Anne's has an open baptism policy, which means that the application process should be very simple and straightforward.

The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences in life. As a Christian community here in Bagshot we would love to come around you and support you in any way we can as you prepare to say your final goodbyes.


At St Anne's we have an open funeral policy, which means that anybody can approach us with regards to conducting the funeral of a loved one. We lead services here at St Anne's, but are also very familiar with the local crematoria in Woking, Easthampsted Park, Aldershot, Guildford, Basingstoke and  Hanworth.


With regards to burials, there is no graveyard at St Anne's and the village cemetery in Chapel Lane is now closed to new burials. However, the cemeteries in Windlesham and Lightwater are still open and  enquiries for a burial plot can be made by contacting Windlesham Parish Council. We regularly conduct funeral services at both local cemeteries and would be more than willing to do this for you too.

Please do let us know if you would like to help you plan your loved one's funeral. You can contact us here:

Especially in the context of infant baptism, as is common in the Church of England, Confirmation is an opportunity to confirm the promises our parents have made on our behalf at our baptism service.


Like baptism, confirmation is not the end of a journey, but rather the beginning of a conscious, open minded and hearted walk through life which is sustained by prayer, the participation in a Christian community as well as an active seeking for the guidance of the Holy Spirit for one's life. 


Confirmation is therefore a sacrament by which participation in the life of God’s people, inaugurated at baptism, is confirmed by the bishop by the laying on of hands, and in which those who have been baptised affirm for themselves the faith into which they have been baptised and their intention to live a life of responsible and committed discipleship. Through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop, the Church also asks God to give them power through the Holy Spirit to enable them to live in this way.


For more information please have a look at the Church of England Confirmation website.

At St Anne's we regularly prepare both teenagers (min age 13) as well as adults for confirmation. This is normally done on an annual basis, but varies according to numbers. Our sessions are very informal and tend to focus a lot on the areas of interest expressed by the confirmands.


If you are interested in exploring issues of faith together with us in this context, please do contact us.
