St Alban's Church, Ashmore Park,
Since Sunday 6th September, we have been back indoors in the building, but at new times. To fit everybody in, we need (at least) two services. 9.30am is towards the formal end of our pre-Covid style; 11am is much more like what we've done online, and includes activities for children. Both services are streamed.
You are welcome to attend in person - please be aware that we have to be strict on numbers, though if you are "just visiting" we will try our hardest to find a way for you to stay. Alternatively, please join us online.
Please find us on Facebook (@StAlbansAP) and YouTube (St Albans Ashmore Park), ring us on 01902 732317 or use the Contact Us page here on A Church Near You. For our children, we have a WhatsApp group for parents and leaders, to keep in touch and to post short sessions on video - please contact us to find out more.
The Memorial Garden is open as usual, 9am to 4.30pm daily. You are welcome to visit to tend to memorials, or for private prayer. There are several benches around the Memorial Garden and Garden of Remembrance. We ask that you observe distancing guidelines.
Ashmore Park Pantry (aka the Foodbank) is currently open 12-2 on Wednesday, 4-6 on Fridays and 12:45-2:30 on Sundays. Anyone living in the WV11 postcode area who is at risk of going hungry is welcome to come and collect food - or a neighbour/friend/family member can pick it up for you.
No other church activities are currently taking place in the church building, though some of the groups from the community have restarted.
That said, we have a number of online groups for prayer and/or bible study - please contact us for details. There's also Thought for the Day on YouTube and Facebook each weekday.
Welcome to St Albans Church. Hopefully there's something for everyone from the youngest to the oldest. Our church life is centred around Sunday worship. We long to be a Church which has Jesus at the centre, open to the renewing work of the Holy Spirit and which takes the Bible seriously, working out carefully how it all impacts on our lives today. All this influences what we do from children's and young people's groups, to our evangelism and outreach, and to our care and concern for our community.
