Church of England Diocese of Southwark All Saints Hackbridge and North Beddington

Covid 19 Update - when our church is open and how we are covid secure

Coronavirus updated 6th December  2021

In acordance with guidance and advice from the Government and the Church of England via our Diocese we continue to  work to make All Saints church Covid 19 safe. We are now requesting that face coverings are worn unless exempt and we are also asking that those exempt from wearing face coverings or who find singing with a face covering difficult do not sing.

In accordance with Step 4, all our pews are now available and there is no longer any requirement to book (except for our Crib Service).  We are retaining our One-Way-System and sanitising arrangements. We have day specific cards ‘I sat here’ which we ask visitors to put in the place where they have sat so that others coming in can avoid that place

Private Prayer

All Saints church is open Monday to Friday 9am -4pm.  Our votive candlestand and Icon of the Trinity are in the High Altar sanctuary.  Please feel free to leave prayer requests, however, we ask that visitors provide their own pen and paper. Rev Lynn is happy to receive any prayer requests.

Public Worship–Wednesday 9.15am & Sunday 10.15am

Our Wednesday Said service of Holy Communion is in our Lady Chapel.

Our Sunday morning service of Holy Communion is in church and also on Zoom. Please contact Rev Lynn if you would like to participate on Zoom.  As restrictions lift, we are gradually increasing the number of hymns and songs  we sing and gradually returning to our pre-Covid sung liturgy. We are receiving wine by Priest-intinction of wafers.

Service booklets and reading sheets are available in church and a pdf copy of our Sunday service booklet with the Collect, readings and post communion prayer is available to download each week for anyone who prefers to use their phone or tablet. Please use the following link 

A link to a pdf copy of our Covid-19 Risk Assessment can be found at the bottom of this page - this has been reviewed and updated to reflect step 4 and the Omicron concerns

Please pray – here is a prayer written by the Dean of Southwark Cathedral

Loving God, source of healing and comfort, fill us with your grace, that the sick may be made whole, that those who care for us may be strengthened, that the anxious may be calmed, and those most vulnerable be protected in the power of Spirit in the faith of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
