History of St. Simeon & Anna Anglican Mission Walworth

In the first decade of the 21st century, church planters Steve & Helen Buchanan felt God’s call to plant an Anglican Church in Walworth, WI. After several years of prayer, in 2012 they heard a presentation by a pastor who planted a church in a senior residential facility. He spoke of not just “doing ministry to seniors, but empowering seniors to do ministry.” The Buchanans felt God speaking directly to them. Because of longstanding connection with the Golden Years of Walworth, they approached the owner, Rich Austin, about planting a church that would meet there. Mr. Austin enthusiastically welcomed this new ministry to the life of the Golden Years community.

A Lenten study was held in the spring of 2013 which involved a group of residents from Golden Years. At the end of the study, Pastor Steve shared the vision of planting a church. The group responded favorably, and they became the core of the new congregation. Sunday Services began on June 2, 2013. For six months the congregation met for worship once a month, but always longed for more. On the First Sunday of Advent, December 1, 2013 the congregation launched weekly Sunday Services. Pastor Steve was ordained a deacon in the Anglican Church in 2015, and a priest in 2016.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

Mission is in the Anglican “DNA.” In October 2014 we began supporting our first missionaries, Fr. Jens & Karen Notstad, as they engaged in church planting work in Wisconsin. In July 2015 we undertook support for a second missionary, a young lady doing long term mission work in Nepal.

Closer to home, we provide ongoing support to the Big Foot Food Pantry, The Time is Now to Help, Agape House and School, and the Pregnancy Helpline of Walworth County. The congregation has also partnered with the Walworth Grade School in providing backpacks full of school supplies for needy students. In 2018 we began partnering with “Project Linus,” making blankets for hospitalized children.

Although Sts. Simeon & Anna was planted with the vision of “empowering seniors to do ministry,” our congregation is now drawing members as well from the wider Walworth community. God is doing a new work in our midst to which we joyfully respond, as He calls more people to His saving grace.

In August 2017, one of our members moved to Ridgestone Terrace in Elkhorn, WI. She sent word that there was no church there. In October of that year, Sts. Simeon & Anna began its second congregation at Ridgestone Terrace. This new congregation currently meets for worship every other Saturday morning at 10 a.m. So we have become a church that plants churches as we seek to live out the vision of “Reaching Walworth County with the Transforming Love of Jesus Christ.”   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Teach us to serve Thee
Teach us, good Lord, to serve Thee as Thou deservest: To give and not to count the cost; To fight and not to heed the wounds; To toil and not to seek for rest; To labour and not ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do Thy will.
