Church Working Party & The Church Garden
Thank you to all those who have given so much time and effort over the past year to help with all those little jobs that often go unnoticed. Working Parties run on Wednesday mornings from 9.00.a.m. until 12 noon - and if you would like to help please talk to one of the churchwardens.
All Saints' School Website
All Saints' School now has its own website which gives in-depth information about the school and all that is going on there with the children. The school pages will continue on this site, but will be more general in their approach. Visit the site by clicking here
This Website is updated at least once a week - usually on a Sunday. If you have any items for inclusion - or any ideas or suggestions for the site - please see one of the Wardens, Father Christopher or Chris Maurice. Additionally if you spot any broken links or errors could you please let us know.

Weekday Masses during September
Father Christopher will be taking his annual holiday this month, so there will be NO Thursday morning Mass after Thursday 13th September. However, the Tuesday evening Mass will continue, and the Tuesday Office Hour will be covered.
The weekly Thursday Mass will resume on October 4th at 11.00 am.

Our next Jumble Sale will be held on Saturday 22nd September. Please publicise this as widely as possible - take a poster for your window - and sign the list at the back of the church if you are able to lend a hand
Macmillan Coffee Morning
On Friday 28th September our 'Open Church' will be a Macmillan Coffee Morning - an opportunity for All Saints' Church to raise money for others. ('Open Church' is from 9.00 am - 12 noon every Friday, although we now open the church at 8.40 am for parents who have dropped their children off at school)
Last year it was attended by parents from the school and other 'visitors' to the church. It would be good if a number of church members could be there to welcome them, so please give it your full support. Put the date in your diary, 'spread the word' - then come along and bring your friends, neighbours etc.
If anyone would like to bake a cake for this event, please have a word with Rita.

The recent changes in the law regarding Data Protection means that we can no longer publish names of the sick. However, they can still be prayed for verbally and we will always pray in church every Sunday and during the week for those who have asked for our prayers.
