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’.

We are preparing a rota of helpers to be on hand to welcome visitors to the garden. If you are able to give an hour or two, please sign the form in church by the font.

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.

Photographs of church events

If you have any photographs from between 2020 and present of any church events and services, Father Neil would like to see them to prepare a presentation. Please can you email them to him. Thanks in advance for your help.

Just Looking Course / Confirmation

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