    PRINCE PHILIP'S FUNERAL - ALL SAINTS' TO OPEN FOR PRIVATE PRAYER IN THE MORNING

    On Saturday, 17th April 2021, between 10.30am and 12 noon, All Saints' Church will be open for private prayer in advance of Prince Philip's funeral in London at 3.00pm.

    Anyone is welcome to come along and there is no need to book - however there is a limit on numbers in church and it's possible that you may be asked to wait until someone leaves if too many should arrive at the same time.  

    This is personal and informal prayer, and not a service - people may come and stay as long as they would like to. Appropriate music will be played from time to time during the morning.

    DAVID SCREEN

    David Screen (left) led the annual Remenbrance Sunday Parade through Sedgley for many years. 

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of David Screen, who attended All Saints' Church all his life. 

    David was a leading figure at Sedgley Royal British Legion and co-organised the Remembrance Sunday Parade from The Walk, through the Bull Ring, to All Saints' every year. 

    He will be greatly missed. 

    If you would like to send a tribute to David, to appear on this website, please email: 

    mmjones29@blueyonder.co.uk

    A page has been set aside for tributes to David's life and contribution to the community:

    BAPTISM AND WEDDING BOOKINGS

    We are having to re-arrange those weddings and baptisms disrupted by the current situation so, regretfully, cannot consider any enquiries for baptisms until further notice.

    NEW DEANERY FOR GORNAL AND SEDGLEY

    As part of the Diocesan restructuring, at the end of February, our parish will become part of a newly formed Deanery called ‘The Greater Dudley Deanery’ which is a bringing together of Kingswinford, Stourbridge and Dudley.

    It is hoped that this will enable us to work more closely with a wider group of parishes. Please pray for the new relationships which will form and please pray for the new Area Dean, who is the Reverend Canon David Hoskin.

    Two people have been appointed as Sub-Deans, and they are the Reverend Rachel Newell and the Reverend Andrew Silas - please keep David, Andrew and Rachel in your prayers as they settle into their new roles.
