    THANK YOU FOR OUR ALL SOULS SERVICE

    Parishioners could light a 'nighlight' candle for a loved one and place it on this tray commemorating souls who have departed. 

    A special thankyou to Canon Jan Humphries, Revd Guy Hewlett and Revd Catherine Mitchell for the All Souls Service held at All Saints' on Sunday 3rd November at 6:30pm.

    The choice of hymns was especially appropriate. 

    During the service, the names of those whom people wished to be remembered were read out. 

    Relatives and friends could then come up and light a 'nightlight' candle - and place it on a tray to remember their loved one.

    CHURCH HALL ASDA GRANT  

    "I am pleased to be able to report that the ASDA Foundation has awarded a grant of £15,000 which, when added to the £12,000 raised locally, will enable: replacement of the flat roof, a new kitchen (with a dishwasher!) and provision of a food servery in the Community Room. This is excellent news and would have not been possible without the local donations for which I offer my grateful thanks." 

    John Anderson.


     

    Are you searching for the grave of a relative?

    If you're searching for a relative who was buried in one of All Saints' three graveyards, please let us know if you are intending to visit.  We may be able to do some preparatory work that can help you in locating the grave. 

    Alas, there is little we can do to help when people arrive unexpectedly. 

    There is usually a Friday Coffee Morning from 10.30am - 12 noon, when All Saints' Church is open to all (ring us 01902 540289 to confirm one is definitely on), and you can come and talk to us then. 

    To contact us in advance, please email the Parish Office:
