Heritage Open Day 14th September 2019

 

All Saints’ Church took part in this national scheme for the first time last year and had an encouraging result.

So, we have registered again - this time we shall have the church open on Saturday 14th September from 10.00am - 4.00pm and this will be followed by a concert by young people (details later).

There will be tours of the church, a children’s quiz and refreshments will be available.

Please encourage your friends and neighbours to come along and see the inside of our beautiful church which so many walk past without realising the beauty within!

Maybe you could help, too? We need welcomers and people to serve refreshments or bake cakes before the day.

Please put the date in your diary now, so you can assist with this wonderful opportunity of outreach. There will be reminders in September and sign-up lists for helpers.

Further details can be obtained from Pat Gunton- pat.gunton@all-saints-ascot.org or the Parish Office.

--------------------

Also on Heritage Open Day we shall be taking part in "Ride and Stride"

The Berkshire Churches Trust is organising this year's 'Ride and Stride' fund raising event for Saturday 14th September. If anyone would like to join in by cycling or walking between the participating churches, further details, including sponsorship forms, are at the back of the church. Please return forms and sponsorship money afterwards to Julie at the Parish Office.

Revd Gill Wiggins

A memorial plaque was installed in the Lady Chapel at All Saints' Church on 28th January 2018.

From the Candlemas service that day -

"Candlemas is the linchpin of the Church's year, the day on which we turn from our celebration of Christmas to our celebration of Christ's passion and resurrection. Today we look back and we look forward. As we look back, it is right and proper that we should remember Gill Wiggins, a faithful lay minister and then associate priest in this parish. Gill herself would want our focus to be not on her, but on Christ.  Nonetheless, as we keep our celebration of Simeon and Anna's joyful reception of the Christ-child in the Jerusalem temple of old, it is also right that we remember and celebrate Gill's faithful service in this temple here in Ascot."

"Almighty God, we remember before you today your faithful minister and priest Gill; and we pray that, having opened to her the gates of larger life, you will receive her more and more into your joyful service, that, with all who have faithfully served you in the past, she may share in the eternal victory of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
