There is also a Service of Holy Communion on Wednesdays at 10am.The next Taize Service will be on Thursday September 26th and is a joint service with the Lutheran Church. It is an international service where we can all join in fellowship together.
Alternating weekly on a Wednesday with our Bible Study Group , we have now formed a Prayer Group, which meets at 11.15, after the Holy Communion Service and coffee. This is run by our current locum Priest joining with John and Sylvia Stuart. Come and be with us as we meet in prayer and christian fellowship. If you have any prayer request that you would like prayers for,these can be left in a box at the back of the church. The next meeting of the Prayer Group will be Wednesday October 2nd and fortnightly from then on . Bible Study will continue under the guidance of our current locum priest. The next meeting will be 25th September at 11.15am. These always conclude in very interesting and lively discussions on a passage from the Bible. Our Inter Quiz Quizzes begin again on Tuesday October 6th at 6pm, come along and pick your wits against our local teams . Another new venture for All Saints is the formation of a Beaver Scout Group for children from six years to eight years, great fun for your little ones to get together, meet new friends and enjoy the challenge of working towards obtaining their badges whilst enjoying it. Volunteers are also needed for Scout leaders and assistants. For more information please phone Cheryl Douglas on 635666343 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
