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.
The World Day of Prayer service 2022 was held at the United Reformed Church Vaughan Road on Friday 4 March at 10.30am and also via Zoom at 7.45pm
This year’s service was prepared (three years ago) by the Christian Women of England, Wales & Northern Ireland with the theme of God’s promise found in the book of Jeremiah chapter 29 “I know the plans I have for you”, focusing on freedom, forgiveness, justice and God’s peace which can be a sign of hope for all people. The prophet Jeremiah lived some 600 years BC at a time when the southern kingdom of Judah had been invaded by the Babylonians and many of its people taken from Jerusalem into exile. The people had lost their land and the future looked bleak.

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.

“HOLIDAY AT HOME – gives an opportunity for senior members of the community to meet together, in the summer, for a day of friendship, food and fun. An opportunity for a day out is also given. These days are organised and run by members of the parish.
During recent times, the event has also been held as a shortened one-day version known as “Happy Monday”
Please note that within the week of any given event, it’s best to check the pew leaflet for any changes to the event.
This page is mostly filled up when it’s getting close to a major festival.
Dealing with the death a loved one can be a hard time, with many difficult feelings, and lots of questions and anxieties. Whether or not you (or the person who has died) are regular attenders, the Church can offer support and help during those difficult days. A service can be held in the Church and/or at a crematorium/cemetery.
A minister from the church will meet with you, talk you through planning the funeral service, and can help with any questions or concerns. If you would like to discuss the possibility of a Christian service, the first thing you should do is tell your funeral director/undertaker who will explain what to do.
There is useful information about planning for a funeral on the Church of England funerals site.
An application can be made to have the deceased’s ashes interred in St. Nicholas’ churchyard. Please contact the Parish Office for more details.
