Worship at All Saints

At present Public Worship is suspended and the church is completely closed. We have therefore assembled some resources to allow you worship safely.

Materials for this week

Palm Sunday 5th April

The Bishop of Manchester has recorded a service from his home in Salford and is joined, digitally, by two colleagues, also in their own homes.

We have put together a digital 'mini-service' containing many of the items that would have been included this week. As well as an activity sheet for 4-9 year olds, there are hymns to sing along to, a reading to watch/listen to and an address by Jo recorded in her garden yesterday.

Churches Together invite everyone to light a #candleof hope and pray at 19.00 every Sunday. More information from their website.
