All Saints’ church hall was a hive of activity last Saturday when the church hosted the first Repair Fair organised by the recently formed St Albans District Fixers. Some 40 attendees brought all manner of electrical and electronic goods including toasters, lamps, audio equipment, kitchen items and laptops for a skilled band of 8 amateur fixers to work their magic on. Bike repairs and servicing, and clothing and fabric repairs were also undertaken by other volunteers, skilled in their own fields. Meanwhile two members of the All Saints’ Catering Committee plied fixers and those awaiting a fix with teas, coffees and delicious home-made cakes.» Read more
The Apostles Creed and the later Nicene Creed are two important documents of theological summary and history. Both creeds reveal historic Christian assumptions about who God is, and what is God doing. However there are aspects of the creeds that should be examined to help to define the difference in meaning of the names Jesus and Christ.
Apostles Creed. – “I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell…”» Read more
Excitement on social media is already growing about All Saints’ first Repair Fair, to take place on Saturday 19th Feb between 2 and 5pm.
We will be attempting to fix anything electrical that you can carry, from toasters to laptops, toothbrushes to radios, battery operated toys to table lamps, and more besides!
We will also be offering bike servicing and repair, and mending and alterations to clothes and fabrics.
Please book your repair using the button below. This is both to ensure we can fit you in (if at all possible) but also to avoid a Covid risk from overcrowding.
We are not professionals and can offer no guarantees, but will do our best in the time available to fix your item, or to advise you of your best options.» Read more

Have you noticed this wonderful water pump? Restored and renovated by Rob Hemmin to be part of our display today, it represents clean water for all and enough rain to water our crops; as we explore the theme of water. Our superb flower arranging team have put lots of thought into all of these windowsills to reflect our focus on Eco church: the areas where wild flowers were planted or encouraged to grow, to help our wildlife; the pollution of our seas, oceans and rivers; and the importance of our trees and woodlands.
I want to talk about our own use of water, and to take us beyond ourselves to the Bishops Harvest appeal “Water is Life”.
Without the services of Harpenden Child Contact Centre, many separated families would be unable to meet their children after a relationship breakdown. So local volunteers were delighted to meet Hitchin and Harpenden MP, Bim Afolami, when he dropped in at one of their fortnightly sessions at All Saints’ Church Hall in Harpenden recently.» Read more
