While each of our Sunday services at St Anne’s Ryde Anglican Church varies greatly in style they all share our focus on Bible teaching.
Church services recommenced at our regular times on Sunday, 5th July. However, there are many differences in our services to comply with government directions and to keep our community safe.

plenty of opportunities to ask the hard questions.
