Dear All,

We had hoped to meet for Communal Worship during January but with the announcements of many more COVID deaths and increasing numbers of infections together with evidence that increased mask wearing does not prevent contagion by the new variant, we have reluctantly concluded that our worship on Sundays should be online and only those with a specific role in the broadcast should attend. I much regret this but I hope you will be able to participate online.

We continue to pray for all those affected by the pandemic, those unwell and their families and supporters.  We also give thanks for the courage, skill and dedication of medical and nursing staff and all who are giving themselves generously to care for others in such anxious times.

Best wishes,

Andrew Shipton

Face coverings

We are now to wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces such as a place of worship. Relevant guidance on face coverings is available on GOV.UK

Dial a Service

We have introduced 'dial a service' feature where any member of the congregation who can’t attend church can simply dial a telephone number and be able to listen to  a service in full.  We are conscious that not everybody has internet or a laptop/home PC.  We hope to upload a recording of a service every week. If you know anyone that may like this then please let them know about this feature.  The cost is the normal charge for your line.

The number is 0191 814 7244.  

Mission of the Month

Each month any plate donations from our services are given to a nominated charity. All Saints underwrite the donations so that each nominated charity receives 5% of our unrestricted income. During the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 donations for the Mission of the Month have reduced so dramatically that there has been significant additional expenditure in order to fulfil our underwriting obligation.

In order to manage the situation better, those not currently attending church services can make donations in the form of cash, personal cheques and CAF cheques for Mission of the Month by posting or delivering by hand to the parish office mailbox for the attention of the treasurer. Also donations may be made by online transfer into the All Saints’ bank account with the name of the appropriate charity as a reference.

It should be noted that any donations sent directly to the charities cannot be taken into account when considering All Saints’ underwriting guarantee.

Thank you for your continuing support.

In January we are supporting The Cedarwood Trust.

The Cedarwood Trust offers a variety of services, daily activities and support groups for the community. Offering residents a safe place to spend time, meet people and provide essential support and resources to those who need it.

Please show your support and donate to our Mission of the Month.
