This Week

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

Website Update

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.

Quiz Nite 2018 - Saturday 27th October

Doors open at 7.00 pm for a 7.30 pm start.

Every year, as part of our Patronal Festival Celebrations, we hold an inter-church quiz. Hopefully the questions are not too difficult, often amusing, and certainly wide-ranging, so it promises to be an entertaining and enjoyable evening.

Invitations are being sent to a number of churches who usually take part, and to the school, and we usually field at least two teams from All Saints' Church. The evening includes a choice of Fish' n Chips (£8.50 each), Sausage and Chips (£7.50 each), or just Chips (£4.50 each). There is also a reduced price ticket (£3.00 each) for those who do not require any food. People are asked to bring their own drinks, glasses and eating utensils if required.

Patronal Festival 2018

Thursday 1st November 2018  is, of course, All Saints' Day - our Patronal Festival.

We will celebrate it with Solemn Mass at which the preacher will be: The Very Revd. Dr. John Hall - Dean of Westminster

The service will be followed by refreshments in the church hall.

Father John was licensed as Priest-in-Charge of All Saints' on All Saints' Day 1978 so this year marks the 40th anniversary of that occasion. Before coming to All Saints' he had been a Curate at S. John the Divine, Kennington - so All Saints was his first parish. He moved on from All Saints' in 1982, a year after the opening of the (then new) All Saints' School in East Road by Princess Margaret.

He has kindly agreed to come and preach at our Patronal Festival this year - so we are hoping to fill the church.

Please make a note of the date in your diary and keep it free - and help us by 'spreading the word', especially to friends and neighbours who would have known him. It may seem we are advertising this a long time ahead - but we wanted to give you plenty of notice, as weknow how many peoples diaries get filled up these days.

Our Patronal Festival is also our traditional Gift Day - which will hopefully boost Church Funds. Also, if you have an All Saints' Box at home, please bring it to church to be emptied.

(Children's Society boxes should be brought back to church in December, as that money is usually sent off in January.)

If you can help with refreshments for our Patronal there is a list at the back of the church on which you can indicate which food you are able to bring. Thank you.

Every Friday the church is open from 9.00.a.m. - 12 noon for coffee, to light a candle or just to sit quietly.  There is also a 'Nearly New' table with a variety of interesting items for sale. All welcome.

There is also access to the garden area which has recently become part of the 'Quiet Garden Movement'

Parish News and Father Christopher's monthly letter

Parish News in greater depth can always be found here and Father Christopher's monthly letter here.

Prayer List

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.
