Special Services at All Saints in October to Christmas

 

All Saints’ Church opened on 4 July with full Covid precautions in place and the services (Sunday 8am and 10am, and Thursday 9.30am, plus Funerals, and Baptisms and soon a Wedding) have been held weekly since. Most people have been able to return, and all safely. Do come.

 

Harvest on 4th October will be as normal but the next special service after that on Nov 1 (together with the 10am All Saints’ Service) is the 4pm Bereavement Service, which usually has the numbers to be accommodated.

 

However, for Remembrance Sunday 8 Nov 10am, the PCC will discuss what format to do safely in its meeting on 23 September (we hope flag bearers will be there). This will also be true for the Christingle, Crib and Carol Services in Church and maybe on the Green (though this is currently unlikely). Midnight Mass may also be more than a single service too (I used to do 9.30pm and 11.15pm Services on Christmas Eve in a previous multi-parish Benefice).  I envisage number limits meaning that folk wishing to come phone the Parish Office and book on a first come first served basis on a specific date a few days before the event.

 

I envisage the 11am Service (10.50am) on Remembrance Sunday 8 Nov outside will be run in a limited way and any attending must be properly socially distanced and wear a mask. Fewer people may attend anyway though. Again, we will discuss this with Covid rules in mind as a PCC. As yet the accessaa.co.uk website of the Dept of Culture Media and Sport (DPMS) advise that folk now must provide contact name and number for any Track and Trace needed.

 

Of course, as the Pandemic situation changes from week to week it is difficult to make decisions for certain (c.f. the Southampton Boat Show in September!) – but rest assured we will try our best to find out for November!

SAYING GOODBYE TO OLWEN

Today, 23 August 2020, we were able to say goodbye to Owen face to face. Olwen has served as Parish Administrator for the last 31 years, yes, you read it right, 31 years. Olwen has dealt with hundreds of wedding couples, scores of people 'just dropping in', endless queries on the telephone and half a dozen or so Rectors, so well done Olwen, enjoy your retirement! 

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!

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.

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

Poetry in the Pandemic. Become a published poet.

While in lockdown, or in restricted social distancing measures, we are all missing the contact with friends.  Whether we have been thinking of them in a light hearted or more sombre way each friendship has meaning.
Everyone is invited, therefore, to commit their thoughts and feelings, by way of a four line poem, to reflect on how they are affected or influenced by a friend, friends or friendship.  All submissions should be the original work of the author, of any age or location, with details for attribution.  All entries will be considered for inclusion in a book to be published.  Any participant making a donation of £5 to the Friends of All Saints Headley (FoASH) will receive a free copy of the book.
Entries can be submitted to  ian.jenkins481@btinternet.com.

All entries should be submitted by 30 September 2020.


Some examples, which are my own work, are:

Solace

As quietly I sit here, for all the world alone,
Without a special partner, I come here on my own.
But still I count my blessings, grateful thanks to send
For, when turning round and smiling, I recognise my friend.

Friends of All Saints Headley Trust (FoASH)

 

 

The purpose of the Trust is…. for the benefit of the parishioners and electoral roll members of Headley Parish and also for the general public by preserving and protecting All Saints Church, Headley through the provision of funds for the maintenance, restoration and repair of  the buildings  and fabric and curtilage of the church and churchyard.

 

This year we intend to begin to repair/relay churchyard paths starting with the section up to the Holme School end (called the ‘North Churchyard’). Funds from FoASH and local grants will be sought to make good, quality, lasting paths. Our Mile of Pennies event last year started this off.

 

Donations are welcome to help in this. The Treasurer for the FoASH Trust is Mr Bob Wilson c/o The Church Office, High St, Headley GU35 8PP. Cheques should be payable to Friends of All Saints Church Headley Trust, or you may wish to specify a donation in your will. If you wish to talk to him further about this, you may do so on 01428-713113 or at the Parish Office on 01428-717207.

 

Rev Andrew, Rector

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.
