St Anne's Church produces a quarterly newsletter, Collect.[8]


Originally built in 1714, on land given by Queen Anne[4] as a church within the parish of Kingston, St. Anne's Church has been extended several times since, as the settlement of Kew grew with royal patronage. In 1770, King George III undertook to pay for the first extension, designed by Joshua Kirby.[4] The church became a parish church in its own right in 1788. In 1805, a new south aisle, designed by Robert Browne,[9] was added, along with a gallery for the royal family's own use. Under King William IV it was further extended in 1837 by Jeffry Wyattville.[9] A mausoleum designed by the architect Benjamin Ferrey[9] was added in 1851 and an eastern extension in 1882. Further extensions occurred in 1902, 1979 and 1988.[10]

The present parish hall, which is at right-angles to the church and incorporates the previous choir vestry, was built in 1978. Its design echoes the materials and forms of the church building.[4]

The deaths of royal and noble parishioners were marked in the church by hanging a hatchment bearing the coats of arms of the deceased person on a diagonal board. A hatchment commemorating George III's son, the King of Hanover, was hung in the church in 1821. It is now in the collection of the Museum of Richmond.[11]
