Indoor services are paused at present
We’ve been monitoring the local virus situation closely and have decided, for the safety of all, to pause our live indoor services in both All Saints’ and Christ Church for a time until things have calmed. From 4th October onwards our All Saints’ Sunday morning services will be live, but online. We’ll start at 10.30am to allow the online family services to happen beforehand. You can join from home by video or phone – details of how to join are on the Sunday Link which can be downloaded below. A pre-recorded service produced by Christ Church Parbold will also be available each Sunday.

We had a super-sunny outdoor harvest service on Sunday 27th September on All Saints’ School Field😎
We were blessed with wonderful weather and a great turnout for our outdoor harvest service. Food donations were sent to the The Brick Foodbank and cash is being collected for Christian Aid – we are sharing with others as a way of thanking God for all he has given us.
Please keep giving to our harvest appeal We’re collecting money for Christian Aid. please give online if you can – click here for details or by phone 020 7523 2269.
Big thanks to Mrs Dunn and the governors of All Saints’ School for letting us use the field and to DJ Danny who donated his services to help us.
Pipe Cleaner Challenge
Contributors to our harvest pipe cleaner challenge ranged in age from 5 – 79! As part of Sunday’s outstanding outdoor harvest service, we made things that we wanted to thank God for. A few folk added comments for clarification including Raffy Hall’s mum who told us he’s grateful for family, including dogs and the Mapple Family whose creations included children, flowers, fish, hearts, the world and Christiano Ronaldo!!! (The CR7 one) We certainly thank God for all of you!
The video below tells us about how the food donations will be distributed and used by The Brick food bank.
The Compline Service, also known as Night Prayer, is a lovely service of prayer and refection which has been used by Christians at the end of the day for generations. This shortened version of the Compline Service is led by Rev’d John Mountain – it’s designed to ask the Lord to grant us a good night’s sleep. Diane and Phil Green also help out with muisc and prayers.
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.
