Church of the Annunciation
Episcopal Church welcomes you to join their worship services.
The parishioners of the Church of the Annunciation value Fellowship and Outreach, in addition to Worship. We enjoy meeting and welcoming visitors following our Sunday services with our Coffee Hour, which is a lot more than coffee. There are a variety of snacks and beverages to appeal to all. We also try to have a social event each month, either a brunch, a potluck and/or a movie, Mardi Gras, games, Oktoberfest or sit down dinners. These social events have turned our church community into a family. They have helped us all to become better acquainted and have drawn people from the fringes into the heart of church activities.
Situated in Holmes Beach, the Church of the Annunciation has come a long way since its first service was held on the island on May 4, 1952. A congregation of just 12 attended those first evening prayers, which has grown somewhat in the years since. Sunday services begin at 7:30am after which there is a Rector's Class at 8.45am. The 10:00am Eucharist also includes a children's Sunday School. Also there is a Holy Eucharist with Healing Service on Thursdays at 9.30am. There are many active groups and societies within the church, including a vestry group, choir, Episcopal Church Women group, Moses Basket Ministry, Shawl Ministry and involvement in other special interest groups. The church also places great value on parish dinners, coffee hours, holiday bazaars, card parties and other events sure to attract members new and old. www.episcopalchurchoftheannunciation.com/
