Faith Moment for 02.08.21 Going Deeper – Betrothed
Rev’d Sue continues a mini-series of faith moments to help us go deeper with God using chapter 2 of the Book of Hosea. She asks us to think about idols and the things we have put in front of God. After the things which were in the way have been removed, God promises to love us for ever. It’s His faithfulness which we can rely on.

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
