We will enjoy the excellent hospitality of the Christian community who will cook lovely meals, put on engaging children’s activities; lead those who wish on beautiful walks; offer a range of fun workshops and give us something to think about!

There is no pressure to take part in anything – if you would rather miss the Christian input on Saturday morning, that is ok (though don’t worry it won’t be heavy); just join in with what you want. To find out more please take a leaflet from the back of church.

The weekend promises to be a fantastic fun time together, with friends old and new from across the church families of All Saints’ and St. James Altham.

Prices of just £145 per adult (£165 en-suite).    Children  under 5’s can go for free; 5-7 year olds – £22 each, 8- 11 year olds £36, 12 – 16 year olds – £50 ( a little more if in ensuite)

Holy Communion at All Saints’

From now onwards the chalice will be offered to communicates again. Those who do not feel safe to receive from the chalice should feel entirely free to simply receive the consecrated bread.We are still not permitted to dip the wafer into the chalice.

Thank you for your patience during this long period when communion has only been ministered in one kind.
