Please sign up if you can offer to bake a Simnel Cake – we need three cakes!
Every Sunday afternoon from May to September, this beautiful and
historic church offers a platform for emerging artists and seasoned
professionals to present exciting and eclectic programmes to the local
community and the wider visiting audience. For over a decade, the
Saint Anne’s Sunday Afternoon Recital Series has consistently
attracted musicians of international repute to perform in this
This year’s series includes programmes from four international piano
recitalists, a unique vocal recital celebrating the centenary of Polish-
Jewish composer Miecyszlaw Weinberg, a new reading for harp and
voice of Les nuits d’été in the sesquicentennial anniversary of the death
of Hector Berlioz, a chamber music cycle featuring Messiaen’s Quatuor
pour la fin du temps, Shostakovich’s Quartet no. 8 in C minor (opus 110)
and Arnold Cooke’s rarely performed Piano Trio, two specialist period
instrument ensembles, contemporary music collective Ensemble x.y
and the return of former music director Chad Kelly to perform three
concerts of the Bach Cantatas, with musical friends old and new.
Before and after every recital, home-made cakes and cream teas can
be enjoyed in the church’s Parish Rooms and surrounding picturesque
grounds. A retiring collection goes towards sustaining and developing
the rich musical life of the community.
Donations in memory of departed loved ones can be given to Monica Bridgewater. If anyone has greenery in their garden which we could use, please bring it to church on or before the morning of Saturday 31st March.
New Sidesmen needed – Would you like to be a sidesman on Sunday mornings at either the 8am or 10am services? How we welcome people to the Church is very important and we would like your help with this essential role. Please contact Tina Ruygrok or Bill Cottle for more information.

Emily Norman (Assistant to the Incumbent) is seeking the views of everyone at St Anne’s about how we can develop our work with youth, young professionals and families. She would love you to complete a simple questionnaire (available at the back of church or from Emily directly) to provide feedback on this. Please can you do so before Friday 22nd March. Additionally, she will be available to meet with anyone who would like to talk about this face to face at drop-in sessions on Friday 8th (13.00 – 17.00) and Friday 15th March (08.00 to 12.00). Please come and find her at Torelli’s cafe in Kew village on one of those days. Emily can also be contacted via email via the parish office.
