We Are Back
Welcome to All Saints!
We are very pleased that government guidelines mean that we can meet again at All Saints for our 10:30am service. The 6:30pm service will resume on 18th October. We want to give everyone the opportunity to hear God’s word each week. You can attend in person by booking in advance. The morning service will also be available as a livestream so you can watch at home if you are unable to come. This is for the foreseeable future. We hope this will enable all our church family and visitors to feel connected and included whether or not they are here in person.
We have prepared the church building to be a ‘COVID Safe’ environment in line with government regulations and the Church of England guidelines. We have done a full Risk Assessment and if you would like to see a copy of this, please email the church office
The regulations and guidelines mean that services are different from how things used to be, and we will update what we do if things do change. If you would like to join us on a Sunday please read the following;
Before the Service:
- Should you, or anyone in your household, have any symptoms of Coronavirus please do not come at all, but please join us online.
- If you are already a member, please book in advance for the Sunday service using this link, log in and select the upcoming service. and we can book you in
- If you are new to All Saints or just visiting, please contact the church office and we can book you in.
- Booking in enables us to guarantee you a seat, as we have limited seating at the moment.
- NHS Test & Trace Programme: In order to support the NHS Test and Trace programme, we are asking visitors for their contact details (name and telephone number). This is done in one of two ways; either through the filling out of the mandatory field on our online booking form or, (for those not able to book online), through providing your details on the door.
