A Warm Welcome

All Saints is a family church which draws on a variety of traditions in its worship. At All Saints we recognise that we are all on a journey together, seeking to be in a closer relationship with Jesus Christ in all that we do.

Why not join us on that journey, and discover the amazing love that God has for each one of us.

We look forward to welcoming you to All Saints.

Covid-19 precautions: updated May 2022

Please remember COVID is still with us:

Mask wearing

This is now a matter of personal choice. We no longer recommend that masks are worn when moving about the building, but that we keep the lower section of the church as the area where masks are worn throughout services so that those who still want to be especially careful have a space.

Alongside that, we want to urge all to continue to be considerate and loving of each other. For some social distancing is still important, masks are generally worn to protect other people, so we need to be careful not to assume that everyone will feel comfortable with the same things as ourselves.

Sanitiser

We continue to recommend regular use of sanitiser, especially when arriving and leaving the building.

Spacing

We continue to encourage social distancing, and groups of chairs remain spaced apart. Please be aware of others when in the church building, you may be comfortable being close to others, but not everyone will feel the same.

Coffee

We have now reintroduced coffee after the main Sunday service.

Chalice

We have been able to receive both bread and wine at Methodist-led communions for some time using the little glasses, at Anglican-led communions we have been receiving in one kind because of concerns about the risk of infection.

Anglican churches have recently been reintroducing the chalice and this is now offered once again at All Saints. The receiving of the wine from the common cup is entirely optional and there is no pressure to do so.

*******

As always, if you are concerned that you may have coronavirus, we recommend that you stay at home.

We all have different concerns and thoughts around the best way to behave at the moment and need to be understanding of each other. We hope that this guidance will help us all to continue to care for each other.

********

Collections – All Saints relies on donations to support its work, but as part of our Covid-19 precautions we are not receiving offertory collections during our services at present.  There may be a plate for a retiring collection, or donations can be given by bank standing order, by online banking, by cheque, or by text giving via mobile phone.  Further details are on the “Support us” page of this website and also on our notice boards.
