All Saints Parish Church
A message from Revd. David Warbrick
Dear Friends and Neighbours,
At long last, we are able to gather in Church. We look forward to celebrating Holy Communion
at All Saints starting from 10am on Sunday 30th August.
You will appreciate there are still restrictions in place so:
We will only be able to accommodate around forty people, depending on household groups, suitably distanced. This may mean we will have to put out a notice saying the service is full, and this could be disheartening. We trust everyone will understand, but we will also extend an invitation to anyone willing to wait in the square that David will bring the sacrament to them outside at the end of the service.
It is recommended that face masks be worn when we gather in church. Of course, they can be removed to receive Communion.
We are required to ask for contact details for track and trace purposes. If you intend to come, you can bring with you your name and number on a piece of paper, or there will be forms available with the order of service.
There will be some live music, but regrettably we are not allowed congregational singing.
We will guide people to receive communion in one kind (bread) and return to seats while maintaining suitable distance from one another.
Any financial offering to sustain All Saints is gratefully received, but at the beginning or end of the service, not during the offertory.
We recognise how varied the pace of our return will necessarily be. No-one should feel obliged to participate in any way that does not feel safe to them. Many may still need to worship at home. We are therefore continuing to provide orders of service and recorded music on line as we have done while Church was closed. We will not forget those still isolated.
I am hugely grateful to John Parkin and Jenny, Anna and Matt for helping everyone have access to on line information, video messages and services. We are deeply indebted to musicians Ben and Clare, Sarah, Martha Ann, Phil, Chris and all our readers and pray-ers who have sustained us and our worship week by week.
For those who are able to come, I look forward very much to being with you and presiding for you at last.
We are delighted that Church is now open for personal prayer, Thursdays 10am-12noon. We trust all who come will keep an appropriate distance between each other.
You can find some prayers for late Evening (possibly for Bedtime?) and morning here

A Note to SatNav Users: Some databases used in SatNavs will take you to the other end of Vicarage Road. Why this happens is not clear, but it is safer to ask your SatNav to take you to the junction of the A435, High Street and the B4122, Vicarage Road.

Visiting All Saints
The Church is open at service times and usually for a short time before and after the services take place. It is also usually open on Saturday mornings when cleaning takes place. At this time there are usually some of the Welcome Team in Church to offer assistance.
Arranged Visits: If you want to arrange a visit, perhaps for a school group, please in the first instance contact the Church Office (Contact details down this page).
Vehicular entrance to all All Saints buildings is by a new access road to the left of the Medical Centre; parking is behind the old Church Hall. There is no direct pedestrian access across the site from the new car park to the church, except on Sundays from the car park: to access the church, go along the new access drive past the Medical Centre to Vicarage Road; turn left along Vicarage Road to the Village Square. Walk across the Village Square to the main door.
