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? 

 Praise & Play re-opens for regular meetings on Tuesday,9th August 2021

Parish Giving Scheme

All Saints' has joined the Diocesan PARISH GIVING SCHEME to administer weekly giving supporting the church. Donations can be gift aided and this increases the value to the church. Please contact the Church Treasurer details of the scheme. Regular giving helps the church to budget effectively. 

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

   Christian Aid Week 10 -16 May 2021.    A Bucket collection was held in Church during Christian Aid Week.  £238.49 was raised - thank you fot your generous donations.

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 ( 01454 778849). House Boxes are one of the most effective fund raisers for the society raising approximately £2million each year. 

The recent All Saints' Church House Box collection proceeds (May 2021) were £188.23.  It is surprising how the small change mounts up!
