We will realize how little we need,
How much we have,
And, the value of human connection
With the declared State of Emergency in Ontario due to the COVID-19 pandemic, regular worship services and booked activities at Annesley will be cancelled until further notice, when another meeting will be held to review the situation.
The Church office will remain open, and we will do our best to provide support and leadership to everyone in this period of uncertainty. A Sunday worship service was sent out yesterday by email, and beginning Sunday, March 29, we will be sending out a weekly link (and instructions) to view a recorded Annesley worship service on YouTube.

If you require Pastoral Care, please call David Fries at 519-986-1499, or Rev. John at 519-270-5373.
We have a willing group of volunteers who will assist you with errands such as grocery shopping if you are unable to leave your home. Call the office at 519-986-3019 to make arrangements for this.

Thank you in advance for participating in Annesley's second "Pill Bottle" fundraiser. The first, in 2017, was a great success. Filled with quarters, the little bottles hold over $25, with loonies, $50, and with toonies, almost $100! Just think that for roughly the cost of 2 coffees per week for 30 weeks, we can raise over $7,000. Think of that! With minimal effort we just effectively add a second sold out Turkey Supper to our Fundraising year! We CAN do it!
