    ALL SAINTS' CHURCH ARCHIVE - MANY THANKS!

    Thank you to Tony Wright who has supplied a collection of photos covering All Saints' social activities, including the Walking Club and Skittles nights, for our Church Archive. 

    Our review on Friday.....

    A Sunday School Parade in the late 1980s - featuring two of the teachers: Margaret Castle and Liz Williams. 

    Many thanks to everyone who contributed names and memories for All Saints' Church Archive at our Friday Coffee Morning on Friday 21st December 2018. We looked at over 200 images selected to represent the spread of church activities, from worship to social groups, as well as reviewing the many members of our clergy and lay helpers over the years. 

    Participants included Liz and Chris Williams, Pam Parton and Margaret Woodhall; memories in some cases reached right back as far as 1942! 

    The enlargement of images made possible through using a projector and screen helped us to identify many previously unnamed past members of the congregation. 

    One fascinating feature to emerge was the number of different roles undertaken by Mrs Sargeant, wife of Vicar Sargeant 1946-57. She appears in photos with Mothers' Union; The Guides and the Sunday School teachers and we assume she took an active part in all of these groups!

    Backgrounds to photos are also intriguing - we were able to identify certain parts of Sedgley through which various Sunday School parades passed. 

    We were also able to review the classification categories for our Archive. 

    UPDATING AND ADDING INFORMATION 

    There's now quite a sizeable task to transcribe the raft of new audio information into text format, after which we will commit the images and captions to the formal archive at Dudley Archives. 

    There is still time to add to or correct the drafts we're working on to produce a first version of our church archive:

    Draft Part 1 - All Saints' Church Archive images and captions 2019

    Draft Part 2 - All Saints' Church Archive images and captions 2019

    So please let Martin know if you need to correct any text or add any information:

    mmjones29@blueyonder.co.uk

    We've cleared the Home Page ready for 2019 

    However  Christmas 2018 content can still be found in the Archive Home Page folder:
