Episcopal Church

St. Anna’s purpose is to lead people into a growing relationship with Christ, to declare the liberating power of the Gospel, and to be the church that demonstrates the love of Christ through works of justice, mercy, empowerment and hospitality.

All are welcomed.
None are shunned.

We are a diverse congregation and our slogan is "All are welcomed. None are shunned." Our worship style is ornate with deep ritual yet it remains warm and inviting. Members of the Transgender community are welcomed. We are also kid and pet friendly, with gender neutral bathrooms we are a real community church.
