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.

Harpenden Child Contact Centre

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.

COP26 – Repair and Reuse

Countdown to COP
Sustainable St Albans

Unless they’ve been living under a rock, it can hardly have escaped anyone’s notice that the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 is happening in Glascow in November. Locally, Sustainable St Albans is running a series of blog postings entitled “Countdown to COP” to raise awareness of how we can all do our bit to counter perhaps the greatest challenge humankind has ever faced.

Electricals and electronics constitute the fastest growing waste stream, and the carbon footprint of manufacturing replacements for all those gadgets is horrendous. Surely this isn’t good stewardship of this beautiful planet God has entrusted to us.

In the Sustainable St Albans blog this week, Philip Le Riche (All Saints’) shares his passion for fixing things, so avoiding or delaying throwing them away. You can read all about it on the Sustainable St Albans website, and maybe even get inspired to fix one or two things yourself! (Philip also gave an interview on Radio Verulam but unfortunately the link to the recording is no longer available as of Aug ’22.)

All Saints’ Church Life

Church life carries on throughout the week, and we encourage members to engage in whatever ways they feel comfortable, and according to their gifts and inclinations, though we recognise that many members hold demanding jobs placing limits on their free time.

All Saints’ Church has long cherished its well-deserved reputation for friendliness, and we would love to welcome you into our fellowship. We are small enough that you can get to know most of our members, and large enough to have plenty going on.

Patterns of Worship

Full details of our worship patterns are given in our Services page.

All Saints Music

The 9.30 Communion Service includes mainly traditional hymns. We are able to call upon the services of organists from within the parish, but do not have a resident organist of our own.

Music at the 11am Worship Service is a mix of traditional hymns and the best of contemporary worship songs, played on our digital piano by one of two classically trained pianists, who are members of the congregation.

All Saints Pastoral Care

We ensure that All Saints people are all members of a supportive group which can vary from Women’s Fellowship or a House Group to the Cleaning Team or one of the other many groups running in the District. The Pastoral Team provide a valuable link between those needing support and others in the congregation able to give it. The Team also advise clergy and together they oversee pastoral visiting and offer Home communion.
