June 2020 Letter from Rev’d Sue Timmins
Psalm 121 v1
I lift up my eyes to the hills—
from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
To our wonderful community,
We are unable to meet together for services at present, but there has never been a time when love, prayer and worship have been more essential.
People are finding new ways, and rediscovering old ways, to reach out to God and to each other.
To help us all keep in touch, we are providing a ‘pre-recorded’ Sunday service which you can access either online through this website. You can also use our facebook page or a CD to access the service. If you would like a link to the service or a copy of the CD, please contact us via our contact email:
We are also featuring two new children’s live services on selected Sundays and for an invite, please contact me either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 07399 146281
If you need help, support, or just a quiet word of prayer, please contact me.
God bless and strengthen us all
Promoting A Safer Church
At All Saints’ we have a robust and thorough approach to the protection of young people and vulnerable adults. As a parish, we have adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance.
Our PCC has formally adopted this and signed the Safeguarding Policy Statement Promoting a Safer Church which can be downloaded below
Details of our parish safeguarding officer can be found in our ‘Safeguarding in our Parish – who’s who’ which can be downloaded below
We have also displayed the Promoting a Safer Church poster prominently within our church this can also be downloaded below
All those working with children and adults at risk have undergone safer recruitment, received safeguarding training and support.
