CRIB SERVICE on DECEMBER 21st at 10am.
We celebrated the Nativity story, with children dressing up in the parts they chose to play, and letting them help us tell the story.. 35 chidren came along with all ages of grown ups.. our favourite 95 year old came too!
It was delightfully chaotic but a wonderful way to enter into the spirit of Christmas and catch the wonder of the baby born in Bethlehem. We all sang O Come let us adore Him with a fresh tenderness and joy!
Christmas Day Holy Communion,
Over 110 people came to this morning service on Christmas Day. The Rev Canon John Bundock led the service and invited the children to put the Crib figures into the Crib as they talked through the story together. He then helped us unwrap Christmas, and during his talk, different children played pass the parcel with different parts of the Christmas story, unwrapping a fresh message in each layer. The last gift was the Baby Jesus, who invites us all to take the Christmas story our into the world and share the good news and the love of God wherever we are. It was a joy to welcome so many local families and their friends and relations to our service.

WC and Servery at All Hallows
Like many old buildings, All Hallows has few modern amenities! Anyone coming to a baptism, funeral or wedding has to be redirected to the pub or worse.. if they need a loo or to change a nappy. Therefore a meeting was held to discuss the need for a WC and a possible Servery, which would help provide basic refreshments after services or special events held in the church.
Following the decision of the meeting, the PCC recently agreed to instruct the architect to make some drawings of possible locations so that the consultation can proceed. Having received the initial drawings from the architect, they were submitted to the DAC, for their review.
A meeting took place in the church recently with the DAC attending and they subsequently advised that they are very supportive of us building a new WC / Servery, however they came up with other suggestions as to the location within the church. The architect has been informed and is now drawing up further plans to incorporate the DAC’s ideas to think on a larger scale. We will continue to update you on the progress of this idea."
