Players of all ages and abilities are welcome. Come and enjoy each other’s company on court and off. Coaching available.
With donations from the congregation, the coffee group and the walking group the members of the Church Flowers group arrange the flowers that are displayed during Worship. After the service the flowers are distributed to people in the parish.
Through Fresh Start many Edinburgh churches including St Anne’s co-operate to collect and distribute household items to people -until recently homeless who are seeking to set up homes of their own.
Jack & Jill Club
Parents and carers are welcome to bring babies and toddlers to the club on Wed. 9.30-11.30 where toys, books and various crafts are provided. Refreshments are available for adults as well as children.
The Guild meet fortnightly on a Tuesday evening in the Guild Room. Meetings are open to all. (not just women!)
St Anne’s Outreach
As part of our Five Year Plan, St Anne’s launched an Outreach Fund in 1999. Its purpose is to provide financial assistance to local charities and organisations with a Church of Scotland connection. This includes work with homeless people and those with disabilities -either in or local to our parish, or sponsored by our Presbytery.
The Walking Group travels far a-field on Saturdays throughout the year to tackle a variety of challenging walks. A sense of achievement once earned is very pleasing!
A less ambitious group leaves from Kaimes Road on Tuesday evenings through the summer for a programme of companionable and easier walks.
The name tells us the club is for Friends and Neighbours – members of St Anne’s and their friends, wherever they live and whether they are church members or not. Primarily for the older generation and those who might not otherwise get out much, it has something for everyone – music, fascinating talks, not-too-demanding quizzes, something serious and many more items just light-hearted – all this after welcoming tea and coffee, fresh home-bakes and a good ‘blether’.
