Archdeacon’s Newsletter

for the Parish of Headley,

Eastertide 2021

Dear Friends

 

I write to you on the occasion of the retirement of Dr Andrew Barton as rector of Headley this Eastertide. My short newsletter has two purposes.

First, I wish to express my gratitude to both Andrew and Lesley for their outstanding ministry in Headley over the past seven years. I don’t say that lightly. I’m aware that the parish was facing some considerable challenge when Andrew arrived. Under his leadership, you have travelled far in the past seven years, not least in becoming even greater prayerful confident disciples which is at the heart of our vision as a diocese. 

 

The Venerable Paul Davies Archdeacon of Surrey

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

Welcome to our parish church website for All Saints’ Church, Headley in Hampshire. We are a village church proclaiming the Good News of Jesus to our small village in the Deanery of Farnham in the Diocese of Guildford in the Church of England on the Surrey Hampshire border.

  Our church is ancient but welcomes all ages in our parish to the many events and worship service held each week, both ancient and modern. We have many local ecumenical events, see also

St Francis Community Church at www.StFrancisHeadleyDown.com, but also provide the many services of Baptisms (Christenings), Weddings and Funerals, as well as major Festival Events.

  Our ministry is proclaiming and teaching the Gospel and following Jesus. We have a ministry to our local growing Holme Church of England Primary School, which is an Academy School for the Good Shepherd Trust. Click here for their latest newsletter. 

www.theholme.schooljotter2.com

  Like so many Church of England village churches, our ministry, witness and service is to all in our parish. 

We welcome you!

THE CHURCH CLOCK

Some of you will have noticed that in early January the church clock decided to go on strike – or rather not to strike! Upon investigation by the experts, it was found that the part supporting the pendulum was bent and fractured in two places. As a result, the faulty part had to be removed, repaired and replaced which was done in February and is now keeping good time and chiming in its familiar way. The Rector put out an appeal for donations towards its repair on Facebook which produced some welcome donations. In addition, Cllr Anthony Williams has kindly awarded a grant of £800 towards the cost of the repair from his EHDC discretionary fund. We are very grateful to him for assisting with restoring this community asset to its full working order. The balance of the cost is being funded from The Friends of All Saints Church Headley Trust.

Donations are welcome to The Treasurer, All Saints Church Office,High Street, Headley GU35 8PP cheques to ‘FoASH’ Friends of All Saints Headley charity which ensures the Guildford Diocese don’t take any of it in church tax! Or call treasurer Bob Wilson on 01428-713113 for BACS payments info.

 

Thank you in advance

CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES 

All Saints Sunday Club. 

Suspended until further notice


  We meet in the church centre at 10:00 am on the 3 Sundays when there is a Communion Service in church. ( On the 2nd Sunday it's a Family Service). Anyone can come along from aged 4 - 13/14 to enjoy activities which we arrange around the Christian lesson each week.

 

  The activities are led by experienced teachers and vary from music to drama to art/ craft to discussions about the lesson. We then go into church to receive a blessing and tell the congregation about our learning. We always join in with the Family Service each month with prayers or readings and every so often we actually run the Family Service.

 

  We also have Fun Days which include a bouncy castle and lots of fun and food, and we also have Messy Church days in the half term holidays. 


  Young people come from Headley, Headley Down, Lindford and Bordon. Youngsters can come for just one visit, a few or regularly. We don't mind, we love to see you! Parents do not have to stay, although we like them to come into church, but they can leave and collect their young people each week. 


For more information contact the Church Office on 01428 717321

Is God good?

 

A few hundred years ago leading scientists and mathematicians were often philosophers too. One who was known for his optimism (which we are sore in need of, right now) was Gottfried Leibnitz (or Leibniz). He lived in Germany..........Read more

Friends of All Saints Headley Charitable Trust

 

 

 

  This charitable group (‘FoASH’) has been set up and registered with the Charity Commission with the aim of raising money for the upkeep of the buildings and surrounding churchyard of All Saints Church for the future benefit of the community. It will be run by a board of trustees who will represent all sections of the community.

   It was intended that it would be launched officially with a fund-raising event in 2020 but obviously that has not been possible. Some donations have already been used for the new church path. Recently further donations have been made to solve the problems of the church boiler pump, and for the church clock for its repair that is in hand.

  There are several future jobs being considered, including safer tower access, boiler room entrance improvements, and replacement of dead/ dying trees by the church.

  If you would like to donate to FoASH (no contributions are taken for the Parish Share by the Diocese!), or are interested in being involved with the trustees please contact Bob Wilson 01428 713113 or the Church office 01428 717321

Thank you!

All Saints’ Church has been here in the centre of our area including Headley Down, Arford, Standford, Hollywater and Lindford for well over six centuries. Whilst banks and shops and public houses have come and gone, All Saints Church has continued. It is there to be a focus of Christian worship and for the whole community to celebrate births and marriages, and for funerals and burials.
