Thanks
The Peregrine Watch Days have now finished.
I would like to thank Tim, Stuart, Libby and Jane for all their hard work and support in making this venture such a success.
Stuart has made a video for our screen in church so you can watch the year in the life of the 2024 All Saints’ peregrines.
We hope to do the watches again next year.

Holiday club

The All Saints’ holiday club will take place every Thursday during the school holidays.  Could you help us?

Volunteers for cooking will need to be available 11am - 2pm.  Volunteers for helping with the children would need to be available 8.30am - 4.30pm (although they could do half a day if a full day is too much).  We will be open on the 25th July and 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th August. Please contact Niamh if you can help - niamh.holman@stamfordallsaints.org.uk

St John's Churchyard Quiet Garden

On Fridays in June and July, between 10.00 and 14.00,  the churchyard garden at St John's will be open to visitors. Come along and enjoy the peace and beauty of this hidden treasure in the centre of Stamford and combine it with coffee and cake in All Saints’.

Safeguarding training/help

To help people complete safeguarding training, Niamh is going to be at coffee bar on the following dates, 2nd Aug, 9th August, and 16th August. She will bring some devices so people can drop in and complete the training. Niamh will be able to offer support if they need it. Anyone that has a voluntary role with church needs to complete the training (if they haven’t already). They can just turn up, no need to book.

Evergreen Care Trust

Evergreen Care Trust have asked us to share this message:

Prayer has always been a vital underpinning foundation for the Evergreen ministry, since Covid we have developed a virtual group of prayer partners (via e mail each Monday, detailing written matters for thanksgiving and prayer) many of whom are in other parts of the county or country. Our beloved prayer lead who was responsible for arranging our prayer update rota is shortly moving away from the area and we need to replace her vital role.   

We are always looking for those who have a heart for prayer and a heart for older people to join our prayer group and wonder if there is anyone in the local body who would like to take on the role of Prayer Lead for Evergreen and oversee the quarterly rotas for prayer ? this is a really important part of our ministry underpinning and covering our work. We would be very pleased to hear from anyone who would like to join the prayer list network and or take up the Prayer Lead role. Please contact Louise Marsh louisemarsh@evergreencare.org.uk or mobile 07913008125

Looking for a daily peace?

We all love to be in All Saints' Church. It has become our spiritual home, for all its idiosyncrasies. In such a 'thin' place it appears that we are closer to God. Not true of course. God is everywhere but that feeling of intimacy is magnified by time spent intentionally focused on God through prayer and worship. It is a place 'where prayer has been valid', as T.S.Eliot writes in his poem 'Little Gidding'. It is an attractive Cambridgeshire hamlet well known to our parish. The poem continues,                                                                                             "And prayer is more

                Than an order of words, the conscious occupation

                Of the praying mind, or the sound of the voice praying."  


If this experience of prayer would be valuable through your week,  why not join your clergy on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday at 8.45 am for some shared silence, followed by Morning Prayer (20 minutes, optional).  It will be a great encouragement to our hard-working clergy for it is a mandatory requirement for them but it is so much easier with a little support. Moreover, it will give your own life of prayer a kick-start and if that is not necessary, then a support for its growth and development.

Just Looking Course / Confirmation

Those thinking about joining this course or preparing for confirmation - Father Neil will be holding a group session on Sunday afternoons from the beginning of August.

This is in anticipation of a confirmation service that the Bishop will be conducting at All Saints’ in November.

Bible Study

The Wednesday evening Bible Study group are now looking at Paul’s letter to the Galatians. If you would like to join us you will be very welcomed.
