Worship at All Saints

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

Pentecost 31st May

National Service

The national online Pentecost Sunday service was led by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, UK Church leaders and included a message from His Holiness Pope Francis on the day we remember the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church.

Diocesan Service

‘Amazed, astonished and bewildered... The Holy Spirit came upon the gathered people, speaking many different languages, and they understood one another, rejoicing in the greatness of God…' A service streamed from St Alban's Cathedral

Parish Communion for Pentecost

We held an on-line service. Due to some technical issues, that have now been resolved, we were unable to livestream it. You can view a 'cleaned up' version on Youtube and/or FaceBook.

You can read and use the Order of Service in your own time. There were two hymns: Come down O Love divine and Holy Spirit, come, confirm us

Digital Service

Redemptorist Publications have very generously made their publication available digitally for the period of the C0VID-19 pandemic so we are able to offer a 'Digital Service' both with materials that can be printed off and sent to others and some to be viewed on-line.
