Worship at All Saints

At present we are digesting the detailed guidance from the Government and the National Church about permission for churches to open for public worship observing hygiene and 1m plus social distancing from 4th July. We are giving it careful consideration and will inform everyone of our plans just as soon as we have finalised them. At present the church is only open for private prayer. We have therefore assembled some resources to allow you to worship safely at home.

National Service United in hope and prayer and praise
