    A NOTICE CONCERNING REPAIR TO A WINDOW

    This Public Notice is being displayed here because the Chancellor of the Diocese has waived the requirement for public notices to be displayed inside or outside churches, due to the situation with the Coronavirus, and is encouraging parishes to display such notices online for the present.

    A PDF version which is larger and more legible is displayed via this link: 

    Notice of intended repairs to a kitchen window 2/4/20

     

    AN IMPORTANT NOTICE: VESTRY HOUR - BOOKINGS FOR BAPTISMS AND WEDDINGS

    You will have seen in the Press that all our churches are closed for services for the foreseeable future.

    This means there will be no Vestry Hour at All Saints' to deal with wedding and baptism enquiries.

    We are having to re-arrange those weddings and baptisms disrupted by the current situation so, regretfully, cannot consider any enquiries for baptisms until further notice, nor can we consider any requests for weddings for 2020. 

    If you wish to enquire about a wedding for 2021 or 2022, please contact Chris Williams chriswilliams550@btinternet.com.

    We will put a notice on this website when we are operating normally again.
