On the first Saturday morning of every month from 10.00 – 1.00, Erica Stewart is offering four sessions to anyone of any age who would simply like to talk through issues affecting them in a quiet and completely confidential environment.
Erica is a highly experienced integrative counsellor who has worked for the charity Sands (the stillbirth and neonatal death charity) for the last twenty years, where she has supported a large number of parents, grand-parents and siblings. If you are interested in
talking with Erica please let either Annette or Neal know and we will reserve you one of the fifty minute sessions. There is no cost, we ask simply that you make a small donation to All Saints depending on what you can afford
First Saturday of the Month – Garden Working Party from 10.00 – 12.00
On the first Saturday of every month the Garden Working Party meets, without fail (not even the Beast from the East stopped us!) Any one is welcome to join us, gardening tools and gloves are provided, as we undertake a wide range of jobs, including, digging, weeding, pruning, laying paths and the jewel in our crown – COMPOSTING!
Inspired by the music of little Wings and by the food cooked by gastro-chefs Evelyn, Brenda and Dennis, the first Saturday of the month has become a regular fixture; a testament to the care and affection that so many have for the All Saints Church Gardens.
The rumours were true. During the refreshment break of a recent Garden Working Party morning, Evergreen Evelyn, the long-time Gardener No 1, made Neal, the ruthlessly ambitious and Machiavellian Gardener No 3, kneel before her and with a symbolic spade,
formally appointed him the new Gardener No 1!
Apparently, Neal had drafted an Oscar speech thanking everyone in his life who had helped to prepare him for such an honour, but fortunately, since his knees are no longer quite what they used to be, by the time he had managed to stand up, the moment had passed!
All Saints is proud to be a Fairtrade Church, we were among the first in our Diocese to declare ourselves as such.
We have pledged to serve Fairtrade beverages wherever we cater and as many other refreshments as possible. We seek to the best of our abilities to uphold & promote the 10 principles of Fairtrade as laid down by the World Fairtrade Foundation:
1. Create Opportunities for Economically Disadvantaged Producers
2. Transparency and Accountability
3. Fair Trading Practices
4. Payment of a Fair Price
5. Ensuring no Child Labour and Forced Labour
6. Commitment to Non-Discrimination, Gender Equality, Freedom of Association
7. Ensuring Good Working Conditions
8. Providing Capacity Building
9. Promoting Fair Trade
10. Respect for the Environment
The above list is a reduced version of the 10 Principles of Fair Trade. To see the full WFTO list, please
visit their website here: www.wfto.com/fair-trade/10-principles-fair-trade
To promote Fairtrade within our Church community, we have a Traidcraft stall in the church hall on
the 3 rd Sunday of each month following the 10am Service where Fairtrade groceries & crafts/gifts
may be purchased or ordered from the Traidcraft catalogue.
All are welcome to visit this stall, even if they do not choose to attend the service. A Traidcraft stall is also available at our twice-a-month
Fairtrade Cafés , held on 2 nd and 4 th Wednesdays in the Savage Room (to the rear of our hall) from 10.30am-12noon where we serve Fairtrade Teas & Coffees (or hot chocolate!) together with homemade cakes (always containing at least one Fairtrade ingredient!) at reasonable prices.
All are welcome to join us for a friendly cuppa & a chat, all profits go to our month’s Good Cause.
