Church Life at All Saints

The Choir

All Saints' has a small choir that leads Sunday Worship. The church would love to expand the choir and would welcome new members. If you have any interest in singing or music and would like to join the choir please express your interest to the Churchwarden.

 

The Gardening Team

You don't have to be an expert gardener to join the All Saints' Gardening Team. It is an excellent and cheap way to keep fit. There is no joining fee and it is very satisfying work. The churchyards and Trust Burial ground take lots of taming but there are many rewards. Abundant wild life, the satisfaCaring for God's Acre Logoction of reclaiming land, huge bonfires and the gratitude of parishioners who appreciate the work you do. To join the team turn up in the churchyard any Tuesday morning at 10.00am, you will be made very welcome.

 

Praise and Play

Praise and Play meets in the Church Hall from 10.00am on Thursdays, term time only.   You do not need an invitation to join - just turn up at the Church Hall and join in the fun!  If you want to keep in touch with young families, why not volunteer to join the Praise and Play team?  Contact Claire Jones Tel: 07713 743297.

 

 

 

 

God's Portion Scheme

All Saints' has an envelope scheme for weekly giving to support the church. Donations can be gift aided and this increases the value to the church. Please contact the Church Treasurer for a supply of envelopes. Regular giving helps the church to budget effectively. 

The Treasurer will be  delighted to discuss with you any giving (whether regular or one-off).

 

Supporting Christian Aid

   Christian Aid Week 12 -18 May 2019.  A 'bucket' collection was held in church on Sunday, 12 May to collect donations for Christian Aid.  £96.02 was raised.  Thank you,for your support! Every year we bemoan that Christian Aid week follows directly after the Village Carnival, but local generosity makes any effort we make worthwhile.

 

The Children's Society

All Saints' has been a regular supporter of the Children's Society. Every year we hold a Christingle Service in December. This is supported by the Rainbow, Brownies and Guide Groups and it is always a special occasion. Some of our Christmas Church Collections together with donations from the Christingle Candle Boxes help to support children through the work of the Society.

All Saints' also supports the Children's Society House Box scheme. If you would like to have a House Box please contact Jenny Wellman. House Boxes are one of the most effective fund raisers for the society raising approximately £2million each year.
