Services from All Saints

Pentecost is the Birthday of the Church. We held a special service in Church when we welcomed our Mayor, licensed our ChurchWardens, commissioned our PCC - and learnt about wind and fire!! The service was Communion with Organ Music.

Those who work 'behind the scenes' to deliver our on-line services are all members of the PCC and so were required to attend this service, which meant we were unable to offer a live service on Zoom today. We hope that either the National Sunday Service or the Cathedral Sunday Service above provided a suitable 'stopgap'. We expect to resume our weekly Zoomed services thereafter.
