Church and Lockdown.... Important news!

From the Vicar, Churchwardens and PCC:

We are still unable to offer normal services at All Saints due to the current restrictions.

What we can offer:  All of the ministry team at All Saints are sharing the responsibility of the online Sunday services at 10.30am on Zoom, so that we maintain a variety of leadership, preaching styles and voices.  We agreed that this would be a non-Communion service.  We are also very much overjoyed that so many of you are willing to do readings and intercessions, so a big big thank you!!

We are offering 3 Lent book group opportunities each week in Lent, plus you can find details of the 'Mental health, Christian faith and Lockdown' videos and drop-in group.  Anyone is welcome to these groups, there is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy our journey through this Lent together.

Please know that alongside the Vicar and Churchwardens, the pastoral care team and prayer warriors - we are all accessible and very keen to keep in touch with you.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help or support in any way.  The parish office will remain open for emails and phone calls but will be physically locked and the Vicar can be contacted on 07368 181141 or by email: vicar@allsaintsblackwell.org.uk

With love and prayers assured,

Revd. Jen Croft.  Vicar of All Saints' & Salutation, Blackwell
