All Hallows Church is now open again for services on Sundays. We are delighted to welcome you to join us once again for worship and fellowship.
Services are held each Sunday at 9.30am. Please see the Services Section of this website for details.
Many people are still suffering from the trauma, anxiety and sickness following this horrendous pandemic. All Hallows is a community of prayer and we pray for our world, our community and those we love to find hope and strength to deal with their distress and concerns.
We believe that God is close to the broken hearted and those who feel crushed by sorrow.
If you have anything you would like us to pray for, please be in touch via the contact form on the website.
Alternatively, if you would like to put a prayer request in the small post box outside Church Cottage opposite the church in Tillington, we will pray for you with complete confidentiality.

News and Reviews
The Sound System
In December 'Sound Impression' came and installed an updated sound system, with new microphones and speakers, improving the sound and access for playlists and the digital organ, which we use every other week.
It involves an improved Hearing loop for those with hearing difficulties, and makes moving around the church with a microphone much easier and less prone to whistles and deafening squeaks!
We are delighted to have had several very generous donations towards this project and a grant from All Churches Trust of £1500.
Thanks to all our donors. This new system takes us into the future and enables everyone to have a better experience during the services. It is hard to enjoy what you cannot hear!

This year's Spring Lecture was given by
Lord Michael Hastings of Scarisbrick
"THE FUTURE WE DON"T KNOW"
Lord Hastings is Chancellor of Regent's University, London and an international figure in the world of Corporate Responsibility, international public affairs and a Vice President of UNICEF and an Ambassador for TEARFUND.
He gave riveting talk on the future we don't know but can engage in fully. He noted all the vast resources going into understanding the universe and black holes, all the manifold things in life we do not know at all or not very much! He then quoted Jesus statement "The poor you will always have with you" and began to unfold our response to this knowable and tragic certainty. He with great energy and wit encouraged all his listeners to engage with something positive to help others, those who will struggle unless encouraged and supported. Those in our own nation or around the world. It does not matter how little you think you can achieve, but do something now! That will make a proper Christian response to the suffering in this world and truly mark us out as followers of Jesus.
In response to a question how he described himself in the public domain where to be a Christian is often seen as divisive, he said "I always call myself a follower of Jesus".
This felt very uplifting and encouraging.
Many thanks to Michael Hastings for his contribution to the many people who joined the meeting.
All Hallows Celebrated Easter Sunday in style!
Over 100 people gathered in the sunshine, sitting on picnic rugs and chairs, while we celebrated the Easter story and Resurrection of Jesus Christ with storytelling, singing loud alleluia's and for most of us, taking communion for the first time in over a year.
It was a wonderful gathering, some of the children made their own Easter Gardens and we all enjoyed the beautiful Easter Garden prepared by Gillie Ross.
Of course there was a chocolate easter Egg hunt by the children, many of whom kindly shared their trophies with others!
It was huge joy to see one another and welcome newcomers, and the "soon to be married" couples in our midst.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
