Ukranian support at Cornelias
We had a successful coffee morning at Cornelias on Thursday, for Ukrainian families. Those who came have asked for their thanks to be passed on for the school items and stationery that was donated for them, they were so pleased to receive these items.
We gathered some more requests, mainly for uniform for school and for shoes, so will be asking for further items soon.
We are confirming holiday club places this week, thank you to all who have pledged to fund those places.

Christian Aid Week 2022
Once again the Harpenden Christian Aid committee organised a delivery only drop of House-to-House collection envelopes across the town. As always this was organised through local churches. A return visit to collect the donations is not required so we have found that more people were willing to volunteer and we managed to cover a substantial area of the town.» Read more
Rothamsted Park Skatepark
Please help us to develop a vision of the new Rothamsted Skatepark
The current skatepark is nearing end of life and a recent survey showed that many people would like to see it replaced with an exciting new one.
The Playpark Action Rothamsted Committee (PARC) charity, registered charity number 1179147, and Harpenden Town Council are working in partnership to redevelop the Skatepark so that it becomes a great community asset. To help us to do this we need views to represent the whole of the Harpenden Community.» Read more
WORSHIPPING SAFELY in our THREE CHURCHES:
As Covid restrictions are lifted, we hope people will feel safe returning to church. Covid has not gone away, but we are learning to live with it. We still encourage people coming to church to wear face masks and to maintain sensible spacing to protect others around them as we worship together. Hand sanitiser is available as well. We offer Holy Communion in as safe a way as possible. Our online service streaming will continue for those joining from home.
A hive of activity at All Saints’
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
