WE WELCOME YOU

Children are sometimes called the 'Church of the Future', but here at All Saints we are fully committed to recognising all our younger members as the Church of the Present! Be they babies, toddlers, pre-school, primary-school or older, each person is valued for who they are and we believe that each one has a part to play in the life of the fellowship. As part of this recognition, we adopted the policy in 2010 (with the Bishop's permission) to offer Holy Communion to baptised children, from an age where they were able to make their own decision (with their parents permission) that they wanted to receive for the right reasons. We use age 9 as a rough guideline, but each individual is different.

The booklet "We Welcome You" (click on the picture below) will explain more about this. You can also read our 'Guidelines and Regulations' by clicking here.

Eight Essential Qualities

As a Parish, we are committed to the Diocesan policy of nuturing the 8 Essential Qualities of Healthy Growing Churches. Our focus for 2016/7 is to improve the quality of our Passionate Spirituality.

In February 2015, we spent a couple of Sundays reminding ourselves of the eight qualities. You'll find these talks on the Sermon Series section of the website. During Summer 2013, we included introductory talks on these qualities as a sermon series followed by a midweek discussion group. You can hear the talks by clicking on the 8EQ Resources link.

LEEK WOOTTON TREBLE
RUNG BY THE THEN PRIME MINISTER!
Anyone remember him?


On a visit to Loughborough, David Cameron went to the John Taylor Bell Foundary, where he was photographed ringing the new Leek Wootton Treble bell.

The Final Ringing 

See these Youtube videos to enjoy highlights of the final evening of the Tower Bells before they were taken away for refurbishment. The ancient Tenor Bell, which dates from around 1360, has entered semi-retirement, chiming as the clock bell but swinging no more!

Below are 'timeshift' videos of the works as the bells were removed (about 32x speed - each lasting a few minutes).  Sadly, one camera failed to work so we can't fully show the crane in action.
