All Hallows Church community is also deeply committed to playing its part in village life, contributing to activities that foster good relationships and being there for one another.
‘We are all in this together’ and want everyone to feel part of the life of the church and the things that go on there and outside.
This includes: readers; choir members; bell ringers; pastoral visiting; path sweeping; flower arrangers; coffee makers; brass buffers; mowers; 'holy dusters'; magazine distributors and prayers!
Church and Brass Cleaning
There is a team of “Holy Dusters” and Brass Cleaners who take it in turns to keep the church sparkling and cared for. Everyone works in pairs, so no-one has too much to cope with and it's rather a lovely thing to do!

It is followed by breakfast at the Old Post House opposite.

The Family Service
On the first Sunday of the Month we have an informal service, short enough for young families as well as relevant to all ages. It is very relaxed with as much participation as possible. Busy children are the norm! More information from Annie Sneller 01798 342507
